Gov. Mike Pence I Cannot Defend Donald Trump

Breaking News

Donald Trump's running mate Governor Mike Pence has broken his silence on the leaked tape.

In a statement released Saturday, Pence says, "As a husband and father, I was offended by the words and actions described by Donald Trump ... I do not condone his remarks and cannot defend them."

However, it's not all bad from Pence ... who continues, "I am grateful that he has expressed remorse and apologized to the American people. 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."

Pence's release comes on the heels of Trump's video apology where he states the 2005 audio of his graphic depiction of women does not reflect who he is today.
