The author also stated that Pence is aiming to take over for Trump in the White House should Trump stumble. It is unclear where this information comes from, but it is CNN so it doesn't matter to them.
CNN earlier this week had one of the authors of a new book about Pence on both "New Day" and "CNN Newsroom." The author, Michael D’Antonio, who is also a CNN contributor, co-authored the book "Shadow President: The Truth About Mike Pence."
CNN host John Berman asked D’Antonio about a quote in his book in which he called Pence the first “Christian supremacist” who could become president, LifeNews reports. “Now, he’s not the first committed Christian to be anywhere near the White House," Berman said. "I mean there have been a lot of deeply religious figures there.”
D’Antonio said Pence is different, putting his religion above the nation.
“I think he’s a very divisive figure. He would like to impose a religiously inspired politics on our country that means rolling back marriage equality, it means a ban on abortion, a whole host of policies that are religiously driven. He’s very upfront about that,” D'Antonio said.
