High-profile Republicans have spoken out against GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump after a video surfaced Friday that captured him making vulgar and sexually charged comments about women.
On the list: Republican Vice Presidential nominee Mike Pence, who said Saturday morning that he cannot condone or defend Donald Trump’s comments about women.
Pence says in a statement: “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.”
Never miss a local story.
Trump said he’s been getting calls of support, and has said he will not quit the presidential race.
