NBC News: Donald Trumpâ€™s running mate, Gov. Mike Pence, is joined by his wife Karen from Indianapolis for an exclusive live interview with TODAY's Savannah Guthrie. He defends Trumpâ€™s handling of criticism by the parents of a Muslim-American soldier slain in Iraq, saying â€śthe man has a heart for our soldiers.â€ť He also says that the $400 million sent to Iran on the day four U.S. hostages were released has â€śendangered the lives of every American on the world stage.â€ť
This week, former CIA director Michael Morrell, in a New York Times opinion piece, described Trump as an "unwitting agent of the Russian Federation" because of his defense of Vladimir Putin.
"I supposes this is the same CIA that told the president that ISIS was the JV team," Pence said. "I mean, come on Savannah, these people are playing politics. And I get all of that."
