VP Mike Pence on China tensions, whether the White House is worried about inflation

Vice President Mike Pence joins Squawk on the Street to discuss the ongoing tensions between the U.S. and China as well as whether the White House is on guard for inflation amid the coronavirus-driven economic downturn.

Following a blowout jobs report, Vice President Mike Pence told CNBC on Friday 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.”

Pence spoke shortly after the May jobs report showed a stunning rise in employment and a decline in the jobless rate, defying expectations and suggesting an economic recovery from pandemic is underway.

The U.S. added 2.5 million jobs in May and the unemployment rate fell to 13.3% from 14.7% in April. Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had been expecting nonfarm payrolls to drop by 8.333 million and the unemployment rate to rise to 19.5%.

President Donald Trump immediately took a victory lap on the numbers, calling them “stupendous,” “joyous,” “STUNNING” and “INCREDIBLE” in a series of tweets.

Trump extended the celebration with a lengthy, wide-ranging speech in the Rose Garden later Friday morning.

Pence did a phenomenal job on CNBC, Trump said, by saying the recovery is “not going to stop.”

“He’s always attributing everything to me, but I’ll attribute this statement to him,” Trump said of Pence. “He said, ‘It’s not going to stop,’ because the numbers that you’re looking at don’t include all of those states that are closed.”

Despite the administration’s optimistic tone, its insistence on pursuing further aid indicates that there are lingering concerns about the economy even after May’s gains.

Pence said a payroll tax cut remains a necessity for sustaining an economic recovery and added that “we’re always mindful of inflation” in an era where the federal government has spent trillions of dollars as part of its efforts to blunt the impact of the virus.

Strange Things About Mike Pence's Marriage

The White House has long been the home of the President and is no stranger to the strange, even when you shift the spotlight toward Donald Trump's second in command, Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Second Lady Karen Pence. These are the strange things about Mike Pence's marriage.

Being a faithful partner is essential to any successful relationship, and perhaps even more so when occupying a public office. After all, infidelity in the White House can easily be unearthed with even the simplest Google search. Need we remind anyone of former President Bill Clinton's infamous Monica Lewinsky scandal? Or looking to more recent events, such as President Trump's alleged affair with adult film actor, Stormy Daniels.

Given the attention to these philanderous officials, it certainly makes sense for politicians to distance themselves from such scrutiny. As for Mike Pence? He takes this idea to a whole new level. According to an interview he had with The Hill, Pence won't even eat a meal alone with another woman. The vice president even goes as far as to refuse any female aides when working late - only requesting the same gender.

Within devout evangelical circles, this is known as the Billy Graham Rule, having been put into practice by the famous American evangelist. However, some of the vice president's critics have connected these views to Mike Pence's stance on LGBTQ issues. Of course, Pence's personal policy led to widespread backlash and a Twitter feeding frenzy, with the criticism being that it's, well, blatantly sexist. When hearing about Pence's strict observance of the Billy Graham Rule, Trump-impersonating comedian Sarah Cooper had this to say on Twitter:

I feel a lot better knowing that whenever Mike Pence refuses to dine with a woman, Trump is right there to pick up the slack.

Vice President Mike Pence: China has shown 'unprecedented' transparency on coronavirus

Vice President Mike Pence sits down with CNBC's Wilfred Frost to discuss the spread of the coronavirus.

Vice President Mike Pence said Beijing has demonstrated “an unprecedented level of transparency” with world health officials in dealing with the new, fast-spreading coronavirus.

“It’s heartbreaking but we stand ready with China to provide them any and all support,” he said on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street.”

Health officials around the world are also scrambling to stop the spread of the new virus, which was discovered Dec. 31 in the Chinese city of Wuhan in Hubei province.

China’s National Health Commission has raised its confirmed coronavirus cases in the country to 31,161. The death toll rose to 636, with one additional fatality in the Philippines and one in Hong Kong. Eleven cases have been reported across the United States.

The Chinese government has put several preventative measures in place, including issuing travel bans and monitoring citizens for fever and coughs. Several retailers have closed stores. While health officials believe the number of actual coronavirus cases to be much larger, some have praised China, Pence among them, for its quick reporting and its willingness to share information about the outbreak.

“We think that China has demonstrated an unprecedented level of transparency” with world health officials, Pence said.

However, a Wuhan doctor who sounded the alarm on social media in December about the new coronavirus was reprimanded by the police in January for spreading “illegal and false” information. The doctor, ophthalmologist Li Wenliang, died of the illness this week.

In the CNBC interview, Pence referred to Thursday’s phone call between President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping, after which Trump tweeted that China will “be successful” in getting control over the deadly coronavirus.

“Trump made it clear that the United States is ready, willing and able to deploy resources,” Pence added.

Medical experts have compared the current coronavirus outbreak to the 2002-2003 SARS epidemic, which also began in China. At the time, the outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome sickened nearly 8,100 people and caused 774 deaths. That means the virus killed roughly 1 in 10 infected people. The new coronavirus has a much lower mortality of rate of about 2% — and it may be even lower, if the confirmed cases are indeed under-reported.

Even after SARS had spread beyond China and around the world, Beijing sought to conceal the number of actual cases and worked meticulously to avoid detection by World Health Organization experts. It wasn’t until a physician spoke out that the concealment became known.

China has said this time will be different. Last month, the ruling Communist Party’s central political and legal affairs commission warned that “whoever deliberately delays and conceals reports will forever be nailed to history’s pillar of shame.” At the time, Xi said people’s health must be put first. “It is necessary to release epidemic information in a timely manner and deepen international cooperation.”

By sharing information quickly, health experts can work to stop the spread of the disease and drugmakers can begin working on possibles vaccines.

Pence launches broadside against China's meddling in US politics, policies

(4 Oct 2018) U.S. Vice President Mike Pence is accusing China of trying to undermine President Donald Trump as the administration deploys tough new rhetoric over Chinese trade, economic and foreign policies.
In prepared remarks for an appearance Thursday at the Hudson Institute, Pence says China is using its power in more proactive and coercive ways to interfere in the domestic policies and politics of the United States.
China wants a different American president, Pence says.
Pence's speech comes a week after Trump accused China during a meeting of the U.N. Security Council of interfering in American elections to help his Democratic rivals.
Regrettably, we found that China has been attempting to interfere in our upcoming 2018 election, Trump said.
They do not want me, or us, to win because I am the first president ever to challenge China on trade.
As proof, Trump later referenced a paid advertising insert in The Des Moines Register by Chinese government-affiliated entities.
