Donald Trump's running mate is firing back at comments by Hillary Clinton in which she described Trump supporters as a "basket of deplorables."

Mike Pence said Saturday at the Values Voters Summit in Washington that Clinton's comments should be "denounced in the strongest possible terms."

He said that Trump supporters are "not a basket of anything," adding, they are "members of every class of this country who know that we can make America great again."

Clinton made her comments at an LGBT fundraiser in New York late Friday, adding that Trump supporters are "The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it."

Pence said, "the men and women who support Donald Trump's campaign are hard-working Americans: Farms, coal miners, teachers, veterans, members of our law enforcement community."
