Trump’s VP choice compares mogul to US icon Reagan


WASHINGTON: In his first interview as Donald Trump’s running mate, Illinois Governor Mike Pence late Friday (Saturday in Manila) compared the Republican presidential hopeful to conservative icon Ronald Reagan. Pence emphasized that the real estate mogul and reality TV star was “the people’s choice.” “Donald Trump again and again emerged because I think very much like the 40th president that you and I so admire, Ronald Reagan, Donald Trump understands the anxiety and the aspiration of the American people like no leader since Reagan.” Trump has no direct political experience. In contrast Reagan, a Hollywood actor, was governor of California before he was elected president.

“I expect next week at our convention you’re going to see our party, and leaders in our party, rally around this good man who will be a great president of the United States,” he said.
