Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence said Sunday that Gennifer Flowers – with whom former President Bill Clinton admitted having an affair in 1998 – will not attend the first presidential debate.

In an interview on "Fox News Sunday," Pence disputed a threat issued by Donald Trump that Flowers might be seated in the front row at the debate at Hofstra University in New York on Monday.

"She will not be attending the debate tomorrow night," Pence declared after being pressed on the issue by host Chris Wallace.

On Saturday, Trump tweeted if "dopey Mark Cuban of failed Benefactor fame wants to sit in the front row, perhaps I will put Gennifer Flowers right alongside of him!"

"Donald Trump was using the tweet yesterday really to mock an effort by Hillary Clinton and her campaign to really distract attention from what the American people are going to be focused tomorrow night, which is on the issues, on the choice that we face," he added.

"The question really should be why was Hillary Clinton and her campaign, you know, inviting some celebrity basketball team owner to the debate to sit on the front row, someone who has mocked and ridiculed my running mate."

Pressed on whether he thought Cuban and Flowers were "equivalent," Pence replied: "Mark Cuban knows as much about national security as I do about professional basketball."

The Indiana governor also deflected direct comment on a Washington Post story on the use of Trump Foundation donations by the GOP nominee.

"These answers are all fair game," he said. "But I just wish there was as much interest in the activities of the Clinton Foundation, that we know accepted tens of millions of dollars from foreign countries and foreign donors who were then given access to Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state."
