“How can his word be trusted when he has said so many things that are not true?” ABC’s Jon Karl asked. “How can the American people trust the president when he says this is a crisis, when he says things over and over again that aren’t true?”
“The American people aren’t as concerned about the political debate as they are concerned about what’s really happening,” Pence answered.
This led to a segment where Pence and Karl challenged each other over the White House’s questionable claim that 4,000 known or suspected terrorists were stopped from entering America through the southern border last year.
