Pence: Buttigieg 'Knows Better' Than Criticism on LGBT Stance

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman touch the stones of the Western Wall during a visit to the site in Jerusalem's Old City

Trump has cited his moving of the USA embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and his decision to pull the US out of the Iran nuclear deal as reasons for Jewish voters to leave the Democratic party and support him and the GOP instead.

Although the two hold opposing beliefs when it comes to whether marriage should be between a man and woman, Pence said in a previous interview the two "worked very closely" while he was governor of in and had a "great working relationship".

"Karen Pence literally works at a school where Pete Buttigieg isn't allowed to be employed, simply because he's gay".

"He knows better. He knows me", Vice President Pence added. "Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator", the Indiana Democrat said.

Pence also spoke to CNN about Trump's continued battle for the border wall, and his use of the word "treasonous" to describe his political opponents who are against the wall.

These remarks weren't lost on social media watchdogs who quickly poked holes into Mrs. Pence's theory. "Except one, which is my home town", Buttigieg said of South Bend.

"It doesn't help your city if you have an adversarial relationship with the sitting governor, and Mayor Buttigieg recognized that", said Greg Goodnight, the Democratic mayor of Kokomo, Indiana, who supports Buttigieg's White House ambitions. During a ceremonial 2016 groundbreaking at a long-shuttered Studebaker factory, Buttigieg and Pence stood side by side and shook hands after scooping dirt with their shovels. He may be new to national politics, but Buttigieg knows how the game is played.

"I think Pete's quarrel is with the First Amendment", Pence told CNN. "Especially if the next president turns out to be male", Buttigieg said. "You are not an activist. And you shouldn't be afraid to speak about that".
