This morning Donald Trump officially announced Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his VP for the 2016 GOP Presidential ticket. Trump described Pence as ‘a man of honor, character and honesty’. Trump heaps praise on Mike Pence and his character and honesty in contrast with lying, crooked Hillary. We shall see if this pick helps bring the Republican party together. Probably not a bad choice by Trump with all things considered.
Billionaire Donald Trump praised his newly minted running mate Mike Pence as ‘a man of honor, character and honesty’ on Saturday, using their official coming-out party as a platform to contrast the Indiana governor with his November opponent Hillary Clinton.
‘Hillary Clinton is the embodiment of corruption. She’s a corrupt person,’ he said.
When Pence spoke nearly a half-hour later, saying he was ‘deeply humbled,’ he drew a standing ovation for a line he uttered Tuesday, during the pair’s only other joint public appearance: ‘Hillary Clinton must never become President of the United States of America.’
The 57-year-old Indianan lauded Trump, ‘this builder, this fighter, this patriotic American who has set aside a legendary career in business to build a stronger America.’
Of course NBC has to try and divide the ticket before the ink was dry on the GOP 2016 presidential logo. One would think its more of a bold move to choose some one with a different set of opinions rather than a “yes” man or woman. But when you are the MSM, you try and cause hate and division of the GOP at all cost.
Donald Trump’s newly-named running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, has shored up discrepancies over his contrasting stances with Trump on several key policies, including past U.S. trade deals, the Muslim ban and the proposal to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.
“You know, you shut the door, you tell the boss exactly what you think,” Pence said on Fox News when asked by host Sean Hannity how he’d work through disagreements with Trump.
“But when the door opens, the job of the vice president is to stand right next to the president and implement the policy that he’s decided. And I’m prepared to do that.”
