11-year-old boy stumps Mike Pence with Donald Trump question



Indiana Gov. Mike Pence on Thursday fielded one of the toughest questions he's faced on the trail as Donald Trump's running mate - from 11-year-old Matthew Schricker.

"I've been watching the news lately and I've been noticing lately that you've been kind of softening up on Mr. Trump's policies and words. Is this going to be your role in the administration?" Schricker said at Pence's Raleigh, North Carolina, town hall.

At first, Pence was stumped. "What did you say that I've been doing?," Pence asked.

Then, he added: "Donald Trump and I are absolutely determined to work together. We have different styles, you might have noticed that. I said at our convention, I said, you know we nominated someone larger than life, known for charisma. So they wanted to kind of balance the ticket."
