The new administration of President Donald Trump hasn't gotten the traditional "honeymoon" from a hyper-critical media, Vice President Mike Pence said on Wednesday.

"Americans that disagree with our agenda, that's their every right," Pence told conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on his daily show. "We respect their right to be heard from."

But he added, "I will tell you the negative media coverage that we've gotten from many quarters — present company excepted — has been striking to me."

"In all of my life, there was always a grace period, right, for new presidents coming in," Pence said. "I think they call it a honeymoon, right? Where the media, like, gives a new administration a chance to come in and start to do what they do."

"And, boy, if there was a honeymoon, it was pretty short, Rush," he said. "I really don't remember that."

The negativity isn't stopping Trump, the vice president said.

"He's 'turned his face like flint against the wind' as the saying goes, and he's driving forward on all of the policies that he promised the American people he would do," Pence said. "We're just getting started. We are in the promise-keeping business, and we're gonna continue to support the president in every way as he keeps his word to the American people."
