Vice President-elect Mike Pence defended President-elect Donald Trump

Vice President Mike Pence defended President Donald Trump on Sunday for making the unmerited case that "millions" of individuals voted unlawfully, saying it was "refreshing" and his right to express his opinion."

Be that as it may, his defense of Trump on ABC's "This Week" outstandingly skirted any full-throated support of Trump's claim.

"Look, I don’t know that that is a false statement, George, and neither do you,” he told host George Stephanopoulos.

Trump tweeted a week ago that he "won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally" and claimed there was "serious voter fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire and California."

In reality, despite the fact that he won the appointive school ― and administration ― Trump is trailing Clinton by more than 2.5 million votes, and there is no confirmation to go down his cases of mass voter extortion. Trump's group hasn't gave any, and Pence didn't, either.

Rather, he played out some verbal tumbling to attest that Trump's claim was a positive from a man who talks his psyche, while never saying whether he concurs. Pence indicated a Pew Center on the States study from 2012 that said there were "millions" of voter enlistments that are erroneous or no more extended legitimate. The creator of that review has said that it was not proof of voter misrepresentation, as Stephanopoulos brought up, before squeezing Pence on whether he was stating it was Trump's "right to make false statements."

"Well, it’s his right to express his opinion as president-elect of the United States,” Pence said. “I think one of the things that’s refreshing about our president-elect and one of the reasons why I think he made such an incredible connection with people all across this country is because he tells you what’s on his mind."

Squeezed again for proof, Pence said Trump has "expressed his opinion on that."

“He’s going to say what he believes to be true and I know that he’s always going to speak in that way as president,” he said.

Reince Priebus, Trump's pick for White House head of staff, comparatively avoided around the question on CBS News' "Face the Nation" on Sunday.

"You don’t know that that’s not true,” he said. “It’s possible."

Host John Dickerson asked whether a president can "just offer a theory that has no evidence behind it, or does he have to tighten up his standards of proof."

"I think he’s done a great job,” Priebus said. “I think the president-elect is someone who has pushed the envelope and caused people to think in this country."

Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway had yet another protection for Trump's tweet when inquired as to whether it was "presidential behavior” on Sunday’s “State of the Union" on CNN.

“He’s the president-elect so that’s presidential behavior, yes,” she said.
