Trump and Pence: Trump ‘sides are aligned’

President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence both reiterated their commitment to advancing their relationship during a joint news conference Tuesday morning.

The president said the two men have had a “very strong relationship” since their campaign, and that the two leaders would continue to support each other and their administration.

“They’ve had a very strong relationship, and they’re still having a very good relationship,” Trump said.

“We have a great relationship and I think that’s why I think they’ve been able to accomplish so much.”

“And I think the people that I know, they’re happy with that,” Pence said.

Pence said he believes Trump is “a true American” who is “the one that can bring our country together and I believe he will do that.”

He added that he is “deeply concerned” about the impact the country is facing from the “political, social and economic problems that the world is facing.”

Trump added that the White House has a “tremendous amount of work to do” in the coming weeks and months to help people in the country and around the world, and he encouraged the country to “get engaged.”

He also called on Congress to act, adding that he will continue to “do everything in my power to get things done for the American people.”
