WASHINGTON (AP) — Indiana Gov. Mike Pence says he supports Donald Trump’s call to “temporarily suspend immigration from countries where terrorists’ influence and impact represents a threat to the United States.”
Pence spoke Friday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” giving his first TV interview since Trump invited him to join the Republican ticket for the White House.
Last year, Pence came out against Trump’s proposed temporary ban on foreign Muslims entering the United States, calling such a ban “offensive and unconstitutional.” Trump’s spokeswoman recently said he no longer supports his proposed religious test.
Pence says he “stepped up without hesitation” when Trump asked him to be his running mate.
He says Trump “understands the anxiety and the aspiration of the American people” like no leader since President Ronald Reagan.
