Mike Pence: "Inarguable That Vladimir Putin Is A Stronger Leader" Than Obama

|

GOP vice presidential candidate Mike Pence speaks with CNN's Dana Bash about Donald Trump's statement that Vladimir Putin is a much stronger leader than President Obama.

Pence doubled down, saying: "It's inarguable that Vladimir Putin has been a stronger leader in his country than Barack Obama has been in this country."

DANA BASH, CNN: Do you personally think that Vladimir Putin is a stronger leader than the current president?

GOV. MIKE PENCE: I think it's inarguable that Vladimir Putin has been a stronger leader in his country than Barack Obama has been in this country, and that's going to change the day that Donald Trump becomes president of the United States of America. I mean, look. You've seen incidents in this last week…

BASH: Obviously -- I mean, I don't need to tell you because you were in Congress. He has -- Barack Obama has a true democracy here with the Congress that pushes back because there's checks and balances. Vladimir Putin doesn't have that.

PENCE: That's exactly right. And Donald Trump…

BASH: So is it hard to say…

PENCE: And Donald Trump said last night, he doesn’t particularly like the system.
