While President Donald Trump is usually the one grabbing the headlines for what he says in interviews, other members of his administration have also had their time in the spotlight. For Vice President Mike Pence, his time came following his most recent interview.

Pence on "Meet the Press"

After Donald Trump was able to gain enough momentum during the 2016 presidential election, he shocked many by walking into the Republican National Convention to accept the party's nomination for president. Not long after, Trump decided that it would be Indiana Gov.

Mike Pence who would be joining him on the ticket, bypassing several other names on the short list, including New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and even half-term Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. With Pence on the team, it showed Trump was willing to go hard-right with some of his policies, especially when dealing with issues pertaining to church and state. Since the election, Pence has been relatively quiet, with the former host of "The Apprentice" and his other associates and advisers finding themselves in the news. As Trump officially wraps up his first 100 days in office, the White House is facing growing backlash over their rhetoric, policy proposals, and executive orders, which Pence touched on during an April 30 interview on NBC's "Meet the Press."

Joining host Chuck Todd on Sunday morning was Mike Pence, who did his best to spin the narrative of Donald Trump in a positive direction.

On the issue of health care, Pence told Todd that the Republican alternative to Obamacare was "right around the corner," before making questionable remarks about the current law on the books. "Obamacare has failed. It literally is collapsing all across the country," Pence said, despite recent polling numbers showing the law is more popular than the president.

Not stopping there, the vice president was forced to admit that Republicans in Congress were not prepared to handle last month's repeal and replace effort of the Affordable Care Act.

"The legislative process is often slow," Mike Pence noted, before stating, "Congress obviously wasn't ready to begin the process of repealing Obamacare a month ago." Going forward, Pence was also asked about the recent tax plan proposed by Donald Trump, and after being pressed on the issue by Chuck Todd, the vice president admitted that "in the short term," the deficit would likely increase because of it.

Twitter reaction

In response to Mike Pence's interview on "Meet the Press," social media users were quick to fire back.

"Call it what it is a lie. The @VP is as big a liar as his boss," one Twitter user wrote. "I can't Believe PENCE Has The Nerve To Go On TV After Lying To American People About Flynn. .Google Orrin Hatch America," another tweet read.

"Not very Republican of you Mr.

VP. Campaign promise of lowering the deficit," a fellow Twitter user added, while using the hashtag "#BrokenPromises." "NO Mr invisible man you're LYING it's LONG TERM & this one page of tax reforms is LAUGHABLE & admin is HORRIBLE & SAD," an additional tweet went on to read. "Ugh. I muted the TV during this segment," a Twitter post read. The negative reactions continued, as it was made clear that many Americans still oppose the current administration.
