The avalanche of emails being released by WikiLeaks from Hillary Clinton's years as secretary of state and with her involvement in the Clinton Foundation show that she has two different personas, GOP vice presidential candidate Mike Pence said Friday.
"There is a very different Hillary Clinton behind closed doors than there is in public," Pence told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program.
"For Hillary Clinton to go to Brazil and say their dream was open borders in our hemisphere, for her to go to Canada and say that her long-term goal was to have a health care system like the Canadian system, this is another example on foreign policy."
But with Republican presidential candidate "the American people know you've got someone who says what he means and means what he says," said Pence. "When he becomes president, you are going to know where he stands and it's going to be exactly where he stood throughout this campaign."
WikiLeaks on Friday released a seventh batch of Clinton-related emails, and Pence denied claims made by some that the website, founded by Julian Assange, is working with the Trump campaign to damage Clinton's reputation before the November election.
"Nothing could be further from the truth," said Pence. "I think all of us have had concerns about WikiLeaks over the years, and it's just a reality of American life today, and of life in the wider world."
But that doesn't change the fact that the national media has been "chasing after unsubstantiated allegations" about Trump, with several women claiming this week he had groped and kissed them without permission.
"The American people need to look at the evidence and understand that we have an opportunity to make America great again but we've got to have new leadership and that begins the day that Donald Trump becomes president," Pence said.
Meanwhile, Pence called on Republicans such as House Speaker Paul Ryan to support Trump, in response to a question over whether he is "not comfortable" with Trump's attacks this week on the Wisconsin Representative.
"Paul Ryan is my friend, but honestly, I would like to see Republican leaders supporting the Republican nominee for president of the United States," said Pence. "I'm supporting all the Republican nominees in this fall's election, but what's encouraging to me is despite the fact that some Republicans have decided to go a different direction, the overwhelming majority of leaders and Republicans are standing with Donald Trump as the next president of the United States. But lastly, make no mistake about it. This movement is much bigger than any one political party."
