Pence quickly proved comfortable using Trump's slogan, declaring "we need to make America great again and that day begins when Donald Trump becomes the 45th President of the United States."
Pence touted Trump's pledges to repeal Obamacare, revive the coal industry and toughen the nation's immigration policy. Pence did so while suggesting Hillary Clinton's policy proposals would weaken the nation's economy and its security.
Trump officially introduced Pence as his running mate at a low-key rally on Saturday in New York. When he brought Pence to the stage, the celebrity businessman shook his hand and patted his forearm before quickly exiting. He came back for a photo with their families at the end of the governor's remarks.
Pence is scheduled to appear at a rally in Indiana later Saturday. Trump is not scheduled to join him.
