(CNN)Vice President Mike Pence avoided directly answering a reporter's question about whether he thought, like President Donald Trump, that there were "very fine people on both sides" who participated in the Charlottesville, Virginia, protests over the weekend that resulted in the death of one woman.
The vice president was vocal on Twitter on Tuesday as he met with Argentina's President Mauricio Macri, but he did not address the comments the President made during a news conference that same day.
It is our hope that Chile, Brazil, Mexico and Peru will join us in breaking all diplomatic and commercial ties with North Korea. And as that isolation -- economically and diplomatically -- continues, the hope for a peaceable solution and a nuclear-free Korean peninsula, we believe, becomes more attainable," Pence said.
The vice president's office announced that he would be ending his trip early and returning to the US on Thursday. His spokesman Marc Lotter told CNN, "He's cutting the trip short to do Camp David with the President and the national security team." The meeting is scheduled to take place on Friday.
