Pence won’t “condone” or “defend” Trump remarks

WASHINGTON (AP) —  Republican Vice Presidential nominee Mike Pence says he cannot condone or defend Donald Trump’s comments about women.

Pence says in a statement Saturday: “As a husband and a father, I was offended by the words and actions described by Donald Trump in the 11-year-old video released yesterday. I do not condone his remarks and cannot defend them. I am grateful that he has expressed remorse and apologized to the American people.”

He continues: “We pray for his family and look forward to the opportunity he has to show what is in his heart when he goes before the nation tomorrow night.”
