Trump just announced Mike Pence as his VP—did he make the right choice?
Why it's a good pick: Pence has experience governing. He's been in the House of Representatives, and now he's the governor of Indiana. He has a solid conservative track record and he’s highly regarded by GOP members.
Paul Ryan hopes Trump picks a "good movement conservative" for VP, says Mike Pence would "clearly be a good one." https://t.co/dCuQJIJOcA
Why it's a bad pick: Pence gave in to criticism over Religious Freedom Restoration in Indiana and signed into law a bill that softened the original bill. People criticized the bill for discriminating against LGBT people.
Mike Pence blew all his conservative credibility over Religious Freedom Restoration Act in Indiana. What a nothingburger.
Picking Pence could derail Trump's antiestablishment vibe. He's made it this far through sheer force of personality and by tapping into the sentiment that the current system is corrupt and doesn't serve the average American. A party insider as his running mate flies in the face of this idea.
