At one point during Donald Trump and Mike Pence's "60 Minutes" interview that aired Sunday, correspondent Lesley Stahl tried to pin down Donald Trump on exactly what he means about going to war to destroy the Islamic State.

Stahl reminded the presumptive Republican nominee that the United States had already done what he suggests by going after American enemies in the Iraq war. She also reminded him that his choice of running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence had voted for the Iraq war as a member of Congress.

DONALD TRUMP: Yeah, we went to Iraq, but that was handled so badly. And that was a war – by the way, that was a war that we shouldn't have entered.

LESLEY STAHL: Your running mate voted for it

DONALD TRUMP: I don't care.

LESLEY STAHL: What do you mean you don't care that he voted for?

DONALD TRUMP: It's a long time ago. And he voted that way and they were also misled. A lot of information was given to people

LESLEY STAHL: But you’ve harped on this.

DONALD TRUMP: But I was against the war in Iraq from the beginning

LESLEY STAHL: Yeah, but you’ve used that vote of Hillary's that was the same as Governor Pence as an example of her bad judgment.

DONALD TRUMP: Many people have, and frankly, I'm one of the few that was right on Iraq … He's entitled to make a mistake every once in a while.

LESLEY STAHL: But she's not? OK, come on-.

DONALD TRUMP: But she's not.

LESLEY STAHL: She's not?

DONALD TRUMP: No. She’s not.

LESLEY STAHL: Got it.
