During a WBNS-TV in Columbus, Ohio, asked Pence to respond to a statement initially written by an 11-year-old girl. Citing Donald Trump’s sexist rhetoric, the girl said, “When I hear those words and look in the mirror they make me feel bad about myself.”
This was Pence’s full response:
Well, I would say to any one of my kids and any children in this country that Donald Trump and I are committed to a safer and more prosperous future for their family. The weak and feckless foreign policy that Hillary Clinton promises to continue has literally caused wider areas of the world to spin apart, the rise of terrorist threats that have inspired violence here at home, and we’ve seen an erosion of law and order in our streets. And we’ve seen opportunities and jobs evaporate and even leave Ohio and leave this country. I would say to any of our kids that if Donald Trump and I have the chance to serve in the White House, that we’re going to work every day for a stronger, safer and more prosperous America.
