Mike Pence is standing firmly with Donald Trump, blasting the media Thursday for airing explosive accusations of sexual misconduct by his running mate.
The Republican vice presidential nominee slammed reporters for spending so much time on “unsubstantiated allegations against my running mate, allegations that he has categorically denied,” rather than focusing on “the corruption and the deceit of the Clintons and the Clinton machine.”
“We’re not going to allow the Clinton campaign and the national media to turn this campaign into a discussion of slander and lies,” Pence said at a GOP dinner in Orefield, Pennsylvania. “We are going to fight for the American people and focus this campaign on the issues that matter most.”
The remarks came at Pence’s first public event since reports that Trump had made unwanted sexual advances toward four women, which appeared in the New York Times, Palm Beach Post and People magazine.
