WASHINGTON (AP) – Mike Pence says faith instructs him on the importance of forgiveness, suggesting Donald Trump was a “big man” for admitting he was wrong to make vulgar remarks about women.

Pence said Monday he doesn’t condone the remarks Trump made in 2005, which were revealed last week.

But the Republican vice presidential candidate and Indiana governor added that everyone falls short of the “glory of God.”

Pence’s remarks at a town hall meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina, were among the first he has made publicly since the recording of Trump emerged on Friday.

Pence canceled his public events in the wake of the recording and opted against attending the debate Sunday night between Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton.
