8:06 am
support the red cross and other efforts that are very likely going to have to step forward in the hours and the days ahead. but i will tell you, charlie, i was very humble, very honored to be on that stage to tell the story about donald trump's vision to make america great again. and it was my great privilege to go out and to be honest with you i know some people said i won the debate and i'll leave that to others but i honestly believe that donald trump won the debate. it was donald trump's vision to make america great again. it was the donald trump's aspiration for this country, the policies he has been articulating that i carried forward. >> he said it was -- >> i also saw a craontrast in ts debate. as i said, it was a privilege for me to be there. >> governor pence, he is claiming credit and said his good judgment in choosing you as his first hire. do you think that is an example of good judgment and are you giving hi any pointers?
8:07 am
people are saying you could give him pointers this sunday night. >> look. obviously, i'm humbleded by his esteem and the kind word by others. i think the reason donald trump has built an extraordinary business, an extraordinary career is because he -- he has had the judgment to make it through tough times. you saw those tax releases that came out from 20 years ago. he faced enormous losses in his business. he led an incredible comeback. he did that by drawing around him women and men of extraordinary ability and enterprise and i think it's exactly the kind of judgment and exactly the kind of people that he is going to bring around him if we have the privilege of serving in the next administration. >> golf, you said that in the debate you were speaking about donald trump's vision. however, you guys differ on a number of policy issues so let me ask you specifically about those issues. specifically, on the topic of immigration. mr. trump said that he has supported a deportation task force. do you also support that?
8:08 am
>> well, that came up in the debate. it was quite striking to me that this -- all this talk about a deportation force. we have a deportation force in this country. it's called immigrations and customs enforcement. and for the first time in the history of immigration and customs enforcement, their union endorsed donald trump to be the next president of the united states of america because they know he has -- he has a plan to end illegal immigration, beginning with border security and strengthening internal nvertsment through imprags amig and custom and identifying and removing from this country aliens and bringing crime to our streets and removing people from this country that the law requires leave after they overstay their visa. and then staying once we have done all of that, let's reform our immigration system and i'll tell you, there is no daylight between donald trump and i on that or any other issue. i truly do believe the american people long for us to end
8:09 am
illegal immigration. we have talked about it for decades. let's do it and let's do it in the order that donald trump described. >> governor, let me ask you about aleppo. aid groups say their situation there is dire. there are a hundred thousand children trapped inside aleppo without food, water, or aid. would you support using u.s. war planes to enforce a zone a no-fly zone so aid trucks could get in? >> well, donald trump and i have consistently called for the establishment of safe zones under, you know, under the umbrella of international approval and we have to act. i mean, the fact that you had the assad regime with the russians in the wake of the failure of the russian reset by hillary clinton, they are li literally on the edge of aleppo. you point to the hundreds of
8:10 am
thousands of children. we have to act now to establish and protect those safe zones and when i was talking to the other night in the debate, i said, look, we absolutely should be prepared to use military force to establish and preserve the safe zones and the ability to people to safely evacuate out of those areas. we can't stand idly by. >> your running mate, the top of the ticket said, quote, i would have stayed out of syria. you guys have a different position on this issue. >> well, i think -- i think donald trump has been very, very clear about his -- his view of -- of the viensyrian situati. first a reset with russia, a total failure under hillary clinton's as secretary. president obama said he would draw a red line if syria ever
8:11 am
used chemical weapons -- >> to be exactly clear, governor pence, i think the issue about ultimate military force. i want to be -- forgive me. f forgive me you and donald trump agree you and donald trump would use u.s. military force to bomb assad forces and to enforce a no-fly zone. absolute agreement between the two of you? >> well, where there is absolute agreement is we have to establish safe zones for people to be able to get out of harm's way in aleppo and if you don't back that up with military resources and our allies in the region, then you can't really guarantee that people in and those hundred thousand children will be out of harm's way. syria has imploded into a civil war and isis is headquartered in syria. it's all emblem mattic of the
8:12 am
weakness of this administration and -- >> let me ask you. >> that's why we need change. >> so we understand you exactly, governor. whether in syria or not, this is a humanitarian crisis. a no-fly zone is one thing and a safe zone is something else. which are you suggesting? >> it is. >> that you do not favor a no-fly zone but you favor a safe zone? >> well, charlie, i think it's -- they are two different things. donald trump has been very consistent in saying we should establish a safe zone in the region working with our allies in the region so that people have a way to get out of aleppo and out of harm's way in syria. and whether that -- you establish a no-fly zone or whether you go beyond that with military force, i think that would have to be a real-time decision by our commander in chief. but we cannot stand idly by the way america has, removing red lines and feinting recess with
8:13 am
russia and wringing our hand and saying as the secretary of state recently said we are out of talks with russia, all the while the leader of russia, you know, flexing his muscles, expanding his influence in the region. the united states of america needs to be there for those suffering families in aleppo and, at the same time, we need to continue to focus our resources as donald trump has on destroying isis at its source. it's headquartered in syria and it's headquartered in rx occa and when donald trump becomes the president of the u.s. we will put the safety and security of the american people first but also be there to provide humanitarian relief and support for people that are coming under the brutal, brutal results of this kind of action. >> all right, governor pence, we thank you. we have to leave it there. unfortunately, we are out of time. senate armed service committee lindy graham is here. he just arrived in our toyota green room. in the next half hour, he will help us kick off our new series called "issues that matter."

the united states, we will stop you. we need to tell the iranians if you continue to developed icb technology in violation of u.n. resolutions we will not not only sanctions. the worst possible thing is allow rogue machine and unstable elements to deliver weapons. >> you say the next president of the united states should be willing to attack north korean nuclear facilities? >> yes. >> if they continue with the program? >> because if you're not willing to do that, then you're going to allow flnorth korea to have the ability to attack us. who in their right mind believes that kim jong-un should launch a missile to the west coast of the united states or maybe even deeper? i think that is a nonstarter for the united states and here is the good news. if he believed we would knock out his program, he would stop. if iran believed we would reimpose sanctions or come after them if they tried to keep developing missile technology, they would stop. if the russians believe we would
8:38 am
actually shoot their planes down, they wouldn't bomb the safe havens. >> you're saying they don't believe the united states would do that? >> nobody does. >> nobody would use force? >> yeah. i think hillary clinton would have a more -- i think -- i would believe her and i hope what i heard today is encouraging from the trump/pence side but i believe that hillary clinton would use military force to protect a safe haven inside of syria and today what i heard was encouraging. >> can i take a step back from the encouraging conversation we are having at "the new york times" first raised this issue vladimir putin is taking advantage of the presidential election knowing that there won't be action in order to continue what he is doing in syria and in other places. what do you see about putin's threat to u.s. national -- >> between now and january when the next president is inaugurated i say land grab in syria and the complete destruction of aleppo and we want peace after they get everything they want. i wore the next few months
8:39 am
you'll see an all-out assault on aleppo and maybe some of the baltic areas might be under threat. the iranians and the north koreans can't develop the technology i'm talking about between now and january but in the next president's term, in the fedex four years between 20 and 24, if the necks president doesn't put iran and north korea in a box in terms of their missile xant, we will live to regret it. >> what should be the u.s. position with vladimir putin? during the debate, we heard mike pence say he is a small and bullying leader and we have heard donald trump indicate he would like to work with putin and things that he actually likes vladimir putin. >> all i can say is that schizophrenia you see is a little bit disturbing to me. i see putin as a dictator. he has destroyed every semblance of democracy in his own country and the biggest weapons supplier to ayatollah in terms of air capability. what i would do it putin is say you will be judged by your behavior and i would take him on in syria. i would say that we are going to train people to fight back
8:40 am
against assad because he is a butcher of damascus and no arab will allow assad to stay in power because he is a proxy of rein and if assad stays in power -- we will take a rocket back from isil and they are going to go after assad and if you bomb the people we train, we will -- that will be a confrontation between us and russia. if you're not willing to support the people you train -- >> be more specific. >> okay. >> what would you do if, in fact, they are bombing the people that we support? because they are doing that now. >> i would shoot them down. >> beyond that? >> the plane is down but what else would you do in terms of confrontation with russia? >> we keep protecting the people we train. two threats in syria that matter to us. assad being in power gives yet another arab capital to the iranians. the rairanians up to no good an means the war in syria never ends if he stays in power
8:41 am
because no arab nation and the people in syria will not accept him as their leader. so if the russians and iranians bent on keeping him in power i side with the syrians. get a regional force together to go after assad and after you destroy isil. >> do you believe the history will judge this administration hashly because of what happened in the middle east? >> i think they are giving the next president a lot of headaches. nothing i said is easy. and if it's provocative, i'm sorry. i know two things about syria for sure, that to destroy isil you have to take the land away from them and hold it. the people we are training, the kurd do not have the ability to destroy isil and rocket syria because they are not arabs. i know this. there is no military pressure on assad at this moment to make him leave. i want to create military pressure so a political solution and without military pressure assad stays and nothing ever changes. >> you said earlier in the campaign choosing donald trump
8:42 am
or ted cruz would be like getting shot or getting poisoned. we are now here with donald trump. what are your thoughts in one sentence? >> oh. >> shot or poison? >> how do you feel? >> too early. >> it's too early? >> it's too early to tell whether it's shot or poison. here is what i do know. if he ding sgoing to be president of the united states he needs to up his game. putin is not our friend but what i heard about syria is encouraging. i wish you would ask secretary clinton this question do you still support a no-fly zone and would you use military force to stop north korea for developing a missile that hit our homeland? ask trump and clinton that at the next debate. would you use military force to stop the development of a missile by north korea that could hit america? because i'm dying to hear what they would say about that. >> thank you, senator graham. >> the people of south carolina. >> i pray for the people in south carolina and florida and everybody else. >> small talk with a stranger. do you think it could make your day better? research says it can.
