Preseumptive Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump and his newly-named running mate Mike Pence appeared in their first joint sit-down interview.

The two men sat down with Leslie Stahl of CBS News for an interview on 60 Minutes which aired on CBS News on Sunday, July 17.

During the interview, Gov. Pence was asked several questions, including his opinion on the tone and negativity of the Trump campaign.

The governor of Indiana was formally presented as Trump’s running mate Saturday, a day after Trump announced the choice on Twitter.

Trump’s presidential campaign has named six staffers to manage the efforts of newly named vice presidential candidate Mike Pence.

The Pence campaign staff, with Nick Ayers as senior adviser, will manage day-to-day operations for Pence and work with the remainder of the Trump campaign team.

Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort welcomed the new members of the campaign staff and praised Pence as “a man of impeccable character.”

Others on the campaign team are manager of vice presidential operations Marty Obst; policy director Josh Pitcock; press secretary Marc Lotter; adviser KellyAnne Conway; and communications adviser Marc Short. The campaign says it will continue to expand its team for the general election in coming days.
