Mike Pence: Trump ‘Has Every Right to Criticize’ Other Branches of Government

Featured, Politics, Videos
Vice President Mike Pence on Sunday defended President Donald Trump's criticism of the federal judge who issued a ruling Friday night halting the new administration's travel ban. "The president of the United States has every right to criticize the other two branches of government," Pence told NBC's Chuck Todd on "Meet The Press." "And we have a long tradition of that in this country. I think people find it very refreshing that they not only understand this president's mind but they understand how he feels about things. He expresses himself in a unique way."   Trump lashed out in a series of tweets after a federal judge in Seattle blocked the president's executive order that restricted people from seven majority-Muslim countries from traveling into the United...

Vice President-elect Mike Pence certainly had a full plate during his time as Indiana governor, but he apparently managed to squeeze in time to schmooze with his constituents — even the youngest ones. State Rep. Randy Frye said that in April, his 11-year-old grandson Silas picked Mr. Pence to write about for a homework assignment on a famous Hoosier of students’ choice. One evening when Mr. Pence was at Mr. Frye’s home, the vice president-elect not only cooperated, but helped Silas complete the assignment, Mr. Frye said. Mr. Frye said he has a picture of them together with a worksheet. “That’s the kind of guy he is,” Mr. Frye said. “He’s got time for everyone, and when my grandson heard that Mike Pence was elected vice president, he told his mother, ‘My best friend is now

Vice President-elect Mike Pence on Monday said it’s time to set aside the “baseless narrative” that President-elect Donald Trump was not legitimately elected because of alleged Russian meddling in last year’s campaign. “This really is the time for us to set aside this narrative that is being pushed by many - this baseless narrative of illegitimacy - and see it for what it is,” Mr. Pence said on “Fox and Friends.” “It is a distraction…just politics as usual, and the American people are tired of it,” he said. Rep. John Lewis, Georgia Democrat, said on NBC recently that he doesn’t consider Mr. Trump to be a legitimate president. About two dozen House Democrats, including Mr. Lewis, have indicated they don’t plan to attend Friday’sinauguration. “For someone of John Lewis’s

When former Vice President Al Gore emerged from his meeting with President-elect Donald Trump, he made sure to tell reporters that he met with Ivanka Trump first but spent "the bulk of the time" with her father. Trump's Gore, an outspoken advocate for fighting climate change, was obviously there seeking to find whatever common ground he could with the new administration, led by someone whose positions on climate change are at best, unpredictable. The fact that Gore did this by first meeting with Trump's daughter is remarkable, especially amid reports that Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, are considering uprooting their family from New York to Washington while incoming first lady Melania Trump stays put in her Trump Tower penthouse. It begs the question: Who exac...

Trump pledged to appoint Supreme Court justices who oppose the law that guarantees women the right to have an abortion. Affirming his campaign pledge to appoint Supreme Court justices who oppose abortion, President-elect Donald Trump on Sunday said that women would “have to go to another state” to get an abortion if the court were to overturn Roe v. Wade. “Having to do with abortions, if it ever were overturned, it would go back to the states,” he said in his first post-election interview, on CBS’ “60 Minutes.” “Yeah, but then some women won’t be able to get an abortion?” Lesley Stahl asked. Trump responded: “Yeah, well, they’ll perhaps have to go, they’ll have to go to another state.” When Stahl asked if he thought that was acceptable, Trump said to wait and see. “Well,
