"I think that people find it very refreshing that they not onlyunderstand this president's mind but they understand how he feels about things".
"The president of the United States has every right to criticize the other two branches of government".
Trump added later Saturday, "What is our country coming to when a judge can halt a Homeland Security travel ban and anyone, even with bad intentions, can come into USA?"
Pence said: "The Iranians got a deal from the worldwide community that again, the president and I and our administration think was a awful deal".
"From the outset of his campaign and administration, the president of the United States has made it clear to put the safety of the American people first", Pence said on "Fox News Sunday".
The event is not open to the public, but the society says a livestream of Pence's remarks will be available on its blog.
"We'll win", he said.
On NBC's "Meet the Press", Pence defended the administration's travel ban, which has encountered legal challenges after being blocked nationwide by a federal district court in Seattle on Friday night, a ruling that was upheld early Sunday by a federal appeals court.
The Justice Department is expected to file a response before Monday afternoon. Though US-Iranian relations have always been problematic, they have further deteriorated as Trump signed an executive order to ban travel from seven Muslim-majority countries - including Iran - to the US.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, said on CNN's "State of the Union" that election fraud does occur but that "there is no evidence that it occurred in such a significant number that would have changed the presidential election".
Pence and Gabriel also reaffirmed that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies needed to contribute "their fair share to our collective security", the White House said in a statement. "How is he a "so-called judge"?"
"If this were a Muslim ban, I would be opposing it".
In that interview, pressed by the host about Russian President Vladimir Putin's harsh tactics - "Putin's a killer", O'Reilly said - Trump seemed to suggest a moral equivalency between the United States and Russia. We have a lot of killers. "And I think that's what you're getting here".
