On Sunday morning, ‘Meet the Press’ host Chuck Todd interviewed Vice President Mike Pence.
Todd asked numerous questions about President Trump’s executive order on restricting immigration from seven terror-laden countries.
The biggest question was, “Why not rescind the order and start all over?”
The question comes on the heels of the executive order being stopped by a Seattle-based judge appointed by George W. Bush.
Pence rejected the idea and was consistent in his answers — standing firm that the actions taken by the president are within the guidelines of the Constitution.
Pence would not cave to Todd’s constant banter about the order being executed in a hasty manner. He explained that President Trump wants to keep Americans safe at a time when Islamic terror is running wild.
Todd then tried to trip up the vice president by showing an old clip of Pence criticizing former President Obama.
Following the clip, Todd pressed Pence about Trump not being able to take critique from people in the press or from federal judges. Pence laughed it off and made Todd look petty.
Also covered in the interview is Todd playing a clip from an upcoming interview between President Trump and Fox News, in which the president speaks kindly of Vladimir Putin.
The Trump interview will air today during the Super Bowl halftime show.
The interview is very informative, and can be watched below:
