Vice President Mike Pence says the reason Americans disliked the media so much was they “selectively” edited the comments he and President Trump and other Republicans had made.
“After the President made comments about people on either side of the debate over monuments, he condemned the KKK, Neo-Nazis and white supremacists and has done so repeatedly,” he said.
“Your concern that he doesn’t condemn Neo-Nazis – President Trump has Jewish grandchildren. His daughter and son-in-law are Jewish. This is a President who respects and cherishes all of the American people.”
“When you [Senator Harris] were DA in San Francisco, when you left office, African Americans were 19 times more likely to be prosecuted for minor drug offences than whites and Hispanics. When you were Attorney-General of California … you increased the disproportionate incarceration of blacks of California.
“You did nothing on criminal justice reform in California. You didn’t lift a finger.
Mr Pence said he and President Trump had fought for criminal justice and for educational choices and opportunities for African-Americans.
