Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., continued to punch back Thursday at Vice President Mike Pence's criticism of his vote against GOP tax cuts, saying Pence "would do everything to harm my state."

Pence was trying to divide rather than unite Americans, Manchin told CNN Primetime with Chris Cuomo on Thursday night.

"He's been a governor; I was a governor of my state; never once did I attack a Republican because I was a Democrat governor," Manchin said. "I looked at them as West Virginians. We work together and fix our fate, and we always did that."

"Mike Pence comes to West Virginia two days after the president gives the State of the Union speech talking about how to get together in a bipartisan way . . . There's nothing you've done since being vice president to work in a bipartisan way. You talk a good game . . ."

Manchin also scolded for coming to the state to tout "tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans."

"You left the average West Virginia working person with a temporary tax," he said. "On top of that, to add insult to injury, you went ahead and repealed the [individual] mandate which . . . unravelled the whole healthcare. You're still determined to throw all these West Virginians, hundreds of thousands, off healthcare."

"You should not come to my state saying that you know what is best . . . when you would do everything to harm my state,” he declared.
