Pence: We Cannot Stand Idly By on Syria the Way Obama Has

‘Donald Trump has been very consistent in saying that we should establish a safe zone working with our allies in the region’

PENCE: "Well, I -- Charlie, I think it's -- they are absolutely two different things. Donald Trump has been very consistent in saying that 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's -- 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, feinting recess with Russia, wringing our hand, saying as -- as the secretary of state recently said that we are just out of talks with Russia, all the while here we have 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."
