Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R), Donald Trump’s running mate, said in an interview aired late Friday that he is “very supportive” of the businessman’s proposed ban on Muslims.
Trump once called for a “total and complete” ban on Muslims from entering the United States. Soon after, Pence tweeted that such a ban was “offensive” and “unconstitutional.”
“I am very supportive of Donald Trump’s call to temporarily suspend immigration from countries where terrorist influence and impact represents a threat to the United States,” Pence said on Fox News.
Pence has publicly disagreed on a variety of other topics, including the Trans Pacific Partnership, the press, and Trump’s attack on a federal judge’s ethnicity.
