Mike Pence has presented himself as a positive campaigner after his first disastrous negative campaign in 1990. How, then, does he square that with the way Trump has conducted his campaign?

Pence seemed to dodge Stahl’s question, saying that “this campaign and Donald Trump’s candidacy has been about the issues the American people care about.” Stahl repeatedly pressed Pence on this, but Trump jumped in…and immediately took the interview in a negative direction.

“We’re different people. I understand that,” Trump said. “I’ll give you an example: Hillary Clinton is a liar.”


Stahl immediately pointed out “that’s negative,” but Trump continued to blast his “crooked” Democratic Party rival.

“I didn’t ask him to do it, but I don’t think he should do it because it’s different for him,” Trump said.
