Indiana Gov. Mike Pence said his vice-presidential role model would be Dick Cheney.
“I frankly hold Dick Cheney in very high regard in his role as vice president,” Pence said when asked in an interview with ABC that aired on Sunday who his vice-presidential role model would be.
Donald Trump‘s running mate asserted that he would be “a very active vice president” like Cheney, who served under President George W. bush.
[…] Cheney is largely regarded as one of the more powerful vice presidents in recent history. He played a prominent role in reshaping America’s national-security apparatus and foreign-policy vision following the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, but also fleshed out the details of many of Bush’s domestic-policy initiatives, occasionally without his knowledge.
