Report that Pence eyeing 2020 run 'complete fiction': Trump counselor

Conway said Pence "is getting ready for 2020: for reelection as vice president."

"That is complete fiction. That is complete fabrication," Conway responded. "Vice President Pence is a very loyal, very dutiful, but also incredibly effective vice president."

Conway said she has "zero concern" about any possibility of Pence running for president in the next cycle, noting that the vice president and his team have pushed back strongly on the report.

The presidential counselor added that Pence plays an important role in the Trump White House, saying, "He is a peer to the president in the West Wing."

Trump plans to be in the White House for seven and a half more years, Conway added, saying, "He plans on being a two-term president."

She acknowledged that "his approval rating among Republicans and conservative and Trump voters is down slightly."

But she said the message from Trump's supporters is for the president to push ahead on his agenda.

"They are telling him, 'Just enact your program. Don't worry about a Congress that isn't supporting legislation to get big-ticket items done ... Focus on the agenda.'"

"Will he commit to not fire him?" Stephanopoulos pressed.
