The comment was yet another illustration of Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence's challenge as he attempts to validate the GOP nominee's unusually vague positions on international diplomatic and military affairs.

"He and I haven't spoken, and I disagree. I disagree," Trump said during his debate with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton Sunday.
