INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Donald Trump has spent plenty of time in Indy vetting his VP pick, Governor Mike Pence, but does the new pair agree on important policies? We're finding they're more different than you may think.

In one example, Trump made bold remarks after the terror attacks in France, stating he was calling for "a total and complete shut down of Muslims entering the United States.” Pence called the statement "offensive and unconstitutional."

Governor Pence did make his own bold attempt in preventing Syrian refugees from resettling in the Hoosier state.

Trump and Pence may also disagree on their stance on abortion practices. Although Trump changes his mind on his stance, he did state in an interview that women who choose to get abortions should receive "some form of punishment."

Governor Pence said he disagreed with those comments, giving this statement;

“Governor Pence does not agree with the statement made by Donald Trump. As someone who has embraced the pro-life position all of his life,  he has a deep compassion for expected mothers and the unborn. The Governor believes that it’s important to focus on policies, as we advance the sanctity of life on those that are performing the abortions.”

In 2011, when Pence was in Congress, he supported free trade, another policy with which Trump strongly disagrees.

“NAFTA  was the worst trade deal in the history. The history of this country and China’s entrance into the world trade organization has enabled the greatest job theft in the history of our country," Trump stated.

While in Congress, Pence voted for the Iraq War. Trump has had inconsistent statements on whether or not he supports invading Iraq.
