Donald Trump calls his running mate Mike Pence a 'man of honour'

The question is, does Donald Trump need that at this time, or is that what Donald Trump wants because that will let him to continue to rule the roost.

Pence also has been an advocate of trade agreements that Trump has opposed.

"What do you mean you don't care?" asked Lesley Stahl, who conducted the interview.

Stahl reminded the presumptive Republican nominee that the United States had already done what he suggests by going after American enemies in the Iraq war.

Trump and Pence are expected to win the GOP presidential and vice-presidential nominations, respectively, at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland this week.

Trump also offered new details about why he selected Pence as his running mate.

Trump called Indiana Gov. Mike Pence "a solid, solid person" and is contrasting his character to what he deemed "the corruption of Hillary Clinton", his likely Democratic opponent in the fall election.

"The fact of the matter is that when they (Democrats) take a sigh of relief that their nominee wasn't indicted three weeks before their national convention, you understand how low the Democratic Party has sunk", he said.

Stahl tried to interject, but Trump continued to talk.

But they came only after Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump spoke for almost half an hour, alone at the podium inside Manhattan's glitzy Hilton Midtown ballroom, in front of five rows of seated supporters - an enthusiastic but restrained group of invited guests.

Trump handed over the microphone to Pence, patted him and walked off the stage and out of sight.

"I promise you that when the circumstances arise where I have a difference on policy or on presentation, I can tell you in my heart, I know I would have no hesitation - were I privileged to be vice president", he said.

The interview was similar to Trump and Pence's first campaign appearance together on Saturday, in which Trump barely mentioned his running mate. And Pence, who endorsed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and campaigned with Cruz in Indiana.

Trump dismissed concerns that the Republican party is divided on his candidacy. "He has been better, and I think he's going to be great moving forward". "Having Governor Mike Pence has really, people that I wasn't necessarily liking or getting along are loving this pick, because they have such respect for him, and the party unity is okay".
