“I think our husbands are doing [a] fantastic job and I will support my husband if he decided to run again,” the first lady said when pressed by students about whether she and Pence wanted to serve another term. 

“And yes, it’s a privilege, a great honor to serve and I will be here,” Trump continued. 

“What a privilege and honor to be able to go on this journey and it would be a privilege to continue as well,” Pence also said in response to the question.
