Vice President Pence said Tuesday that he doesnt recall being told to be on standby when President Trump made an unannounced visit to Walter Reed Medical Center last year.
I dont recall being told to be on standby, Pence told Fox Newss Bret Baier when pressed on an account included in a new book from New York Times correspondent Michael Schmidt. I was informed that the president had a doctors appointment.
Ive got to tell you, part of this job is youre always on standby. Youre vice president of the United States, Pence continued. The American people can be confident that this president is in remarkably good health, and every single day I see that energy in high relief.
According to Schmidts book, Pence was told to be on standby to assume the powers of the president last November in the event Trump had to be anesthetized during the visit to Walter Reed, which had not been on Trumps schedule and prompted widespread speculation about the president's health.
Pence said Tuesday that he is always informed of Trumps movements and insisted there was nothing out of the ordinary about that moment or that day. He referred other questions to the White House physician.
Trump sought to refute the report earlier Tuesday, denying in a tweet that he made an emergency visit to Walter Reed after suffering a series of mini-strokes.
Never happened to THIS candidate - FAKE NEWS. Perhaps they are referring to another candidate from another Party! Trump tweeted.

I dont recall seemed unnecessarily flaccid.
Wasn’t that “secret unscheduled” visit just a few days before he flew out to a war zone?
I figured later it was a checkup and getting his required shots.
Pence told Baier that he is “always informed of the president’s movements” and that he recalls “nothing out of the ordinary about that moment or that day.
fake news to push a fake book
desperation kickin in.
I agree. He should have said, Bullshit.
That would grab their attention.
everyone that would have preferred for him to say, thats fake news bullsh*t, it never happened, and the reporter is a damned liar.
THATS who. deal with it.
Mike Pence would never say that without blushing anyway.
precisely. fanboys cant take it when someone tries to offer constructive criticism, anything besides, yay, team draws fire.
he could have paraphrased. Ida been fine with that.
They probably don’t care either.
When was the last time Brett Behar questioned ANYTHING about Hiden Biden’s obvious health issues?
I get what you are saying he is kind of squishy but I think that is just the way he is. Pence is more politician like than President Trump is for sure.
I think that’s one of the things I like about President Trump he tells it like it is and does not mince words.
here ya go; yay, team! thats the bestest thing to say ever! feel better?
I dont care. Keep praying for Trump. God wants him in office. Period.
pence had an opportunity to knock that bit of fake news out of the park, and passed. its annoying and unproductive.
youve got to hit hard to get through the MSM blackout.
I will! I pray for him every night.
unfortunately, god only gets one vote. weve got to work for all the others.
Flaccid? I had to look that up. Why do you think that is? Oh no I hope Teump is ok!
