11-year-old grills Pence on 'softening up' on Trump at Town Hall

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - Mike Pence came under harsh questioning at a campaign event. His interrogator: an 11-year old.

At a town hall Thursday in Raleigh, North Carolina, Pence, Donald Trump's running mate, took a question from a boy who identified himself as 11-year old Matthew.

Matthew said Pence has been "softening up on Mr. Trump's policies and words" and questioned whether that would be his role in a Trump administration. That prompted an outburst of laughter from the crowd and led Pence to predict that Matthew will be governor of North Carolina someday.

Apparently alluding to controversial comments by Trump, Pence said, "sometimes things don't always come out like you mean."

Pence added that he and Trump "have different styles - you might have noticed that."
