Pence On Black Lives Matter: "I Really Believe All Lives Matter"

|

CBS correspondent John Dickerson presses Vice President Mike Pence on why he refuses to say "black lives matter."

"I really believe that all lives matter," he said. "And that's where the heart of the American people lies."

"What I see in the leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement is a political agenda of the radical left that would defund the police, that would tear down monuments, that would press a radical left agenda and support calls for the kind of violence that has beset the very communities that they say that they're advocating for," he said. "What I hear is while the radical left says we need to defund the police, what the American people want is for us to fund the police with additional training and support and also improve the lives of the people in our African American community, which I'm proud to say, under President Trump's leadership, we were doing over the last three years."
