In an interview on CNN's 'State of the Union,' Donald Trump's running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, criticized Hillary Clinton's running mate Sen. Tim Kaine for tying Donald Trump to the Ku Klux Klan. Tim Kaine said Friday that "Ku Klux Klan values, David Duke values, Donald Trump values, are not American values."
"I think Kaine's comments and Hillary Clinton's comments on Thursday night sound desperate to me," Pence said. In a speech on Thursday, Hillary Clinton characterized supporters of Trump known as the 'alt-right' as "white nationalists" with an agenda of racism.
"The fact that you see Democrats and Hillary Clinton and her running mate rolling out the same old playbook of racial divisiveness sounds a little bit to me like an act of desperation... The American people are sick and tired of politicians who seek to divide the people of this country to unite their supporters," Pence said Sunday.
Pence also said that the Clinton campaign's effort to tie millions of people voting for Donald Trump with a racist group is "deeply offensive."
