Vice President Mike Pence admitted that the White House’s handling of the Rob Porter situation could have gone better, during a Wednesday interview with Axios.
Pence reiterated that the Trump administration does not tolerate domestic violence, but said that the White House could have dealt with the domestic abuse allegations levied against the former White House staff secretary differently.
“This administration has no tolerance for domestic violence, nor should any American. As I said, and as the White House has said, I think the White House could’ve handled this better and I still feel that way. That being said, any more counsel I have on this I’ll share with the president of the United States,” Pence said.
Porter resigned after his two ex-wives accused him of abusing them during their marriages. He denied the allegations and the White House faced criticism for its handling of the situation, often giving the public varying stories of how and when the accounts came to light.
