Pence defends Trump comments on Clinton security

Posted: Updated:
(AP) -

Republican vice presidential running mate Mike Pence is dismissing as "absolute nonsense" any suggestion that Donald Trump is suggesting violence against Hillary Clinton.   

Trump on Friday told a crowd in Miami that since Clinton is for gun control, her Secret Service detail should disarm and, "let's see what happens to her."

Pence said on ABC's "This Week" that Trump was suggesting Clinton has been protected by gun-toting security guards for decades.

Pence said Trump's point was that "she'd change her attitude about the right to keep and bear arms " if she didn't have a security detail.

Pence said he'd "bet that's probably true."
