Mike Pence: Why his role as Trump's evangelical ambassador is facing new pushback

President Donald Trump began a recent National Day of Prayer event recognizing the “big, big help” he’s received from his vice president.Although not specified, that help has included Mike Pence's full-throated defense of Trump's faith credentials as a liaison to Christian conservatives – a bedrock constituency for the Republican president.

But in an overheard private exchange, Pence's longtime friend Ralph Reed, chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, offered the vice president words of reassurance that hinted at the tougher political climate he has faced lately.

“I hope you’ve seen me out there defending you,” Reed told Pence at a White House dinner the night before. “It hasn’t been a hard job.”

Pence, who will deliver the commencement address at Liberty University Saturday, remains an important asset as the 2020 campaign gears up.
