Pence stands by Trump despite crude comments

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Mike Pence is standing by Donald Trump, saying he never considered leaving the Trump ticket.

Following the latest presidential debate, Pence said Monday that he believes Trump is sorry for the crude and predatory language about women captured in a 2005 video that became public last week.

Pence told Fox News that Trump “stepped up” during the debate, “He showed humility. He showed strength. He expressed genuine contrition for the words he had used” in the video.
