Trump: Pence has ‘one hell of a good marriage’

President Trump on Friday praised Vice President Pence’s marriage, which has been in the spotlight this week after a Washington Post profile of his wife, Karen.

“I tell you one thing, he has one hell of a good marriage going,” the president said, patting Pence on the shoulder.

{mosads}The Washington Post profiled Karen Pence this week, describing her as a constant presence at the vice president’s side and a “gut check” on his major decisions. 
 
The story sparked a flood of conversation online, particularly over Mike Pence’s 2002 comment to The Hill that he does not dine privately with other women or attend events with alcohol without Karen. 
 
Mike and Karen Pence have been married more than 30 years. 
 
The Post reported that when Trump asked Pence to serve as his running mate, and when he called to apologize for the lewd remarks he made in the “Access Hollywood” tapes, he asked Pence to pass his wife the phone so he could speak with her directly.
