U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said the jobs report released on Friday was a sign the U.S. economy was beginning to recover from the deep hit caused by the novel coronavirus outbreak, but said President Donald Trump is still in favor of a payroll tax cut.

"We're going to do what needs to be done to bring this economy all the way back," Pence said in a CNBC interview on Friday.

Pence also told CNBC that the Trump administration will have more “good faith” discussions with Democrats about coronavirus relief.

“Those discussions are ongoing,” Pence said when asked on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street” if the surprisingly strong economic numbers ended the need to negotiate with Democrats on additional pandemic relief.

“We’re going to work in good faith to put the interests of the American families and American businesses first,” Pence said.

“But what’s absolutely essential about any additional recovery package is that we have the kind of pro-growth policies that President Trump has been advancing.”
