Pence: ‘Mystifying’ Obama a Hero for Talking to Dictators But It’s a Controversy Trump Talks to Taiwan

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” while commenting on the controversy over the phone call between President-elect Donald Trump and Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen, Vice Present-elect Mike Pence said it was “a little mystifying” President Barack Obama Cuban dictator Raul Castro and be “hailed as a hero,” while President-elect Donald Trump receives criticism for taking call from the president of Taiwan.

Pence said, “We’ll deal with policy after January the 20. This was a courtesy call and plus I have to tell you, George, it’s a little mystifying to me that President Obama can reach out to a murdering dictator in Cuba in the last year and be hailed as a hero for doing it and President-elect Donald Trump takes a courtesy call from a democratically elected leader in Taiwan and it’s become something of a controversy. I think the American people appreciate the fact that our president-elect is taking calls from and reaching out to the world and preparing on day one to lead America on the world stage.”
