Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump said it doesn’t matter that his running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, voted for the war in Iraq.

“I don’t care,” he said during a joint interview with his running mate that aired Sunday night on CBS’s “60 Minutes.”

Trump reiterated that he was against the Iraq War from the beginning and said the war was “handled so badly.”

But Trump has attacked Hillary Clinton for her vote for the war — often calling it an example of her “bad judgment.”

When pressed about his attacks on her for it, he said: “Many people have [attacked her for her vote], and frankly, I’m one of the few that was right on Iraq,” Trump said.

“He’s entitled to make a mistake every once in a while,” Trump said of Pence.

“She’s not?” Lesley Stahl asked.

“No. She’s not,” Trump said.
