AUSTIN, Texas - Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg said Sunday night that he and Vice-President Mike Pence have different views of their Christian faith and that he doesn't understand Pence's loyalty to President Donald Trump.

The mayor of South Bend, Indiana, said his feeling "is that the Scripture is about protecting the stranger, the prisoner, the poor person, and that idea of welcome. That's what I get in the Gospel when I'm in church." He said Pence's view "has a lot more to do with sexuality, a certain view of rectitude."

Buttigieg said he is puzzled by Pence's strong support for the president.

"How could Pence allow himself to become the cheerleader of the porn star presidency?" and added, "Is it that he stopped believing in Scripture, when he started believing in Donald Trump?"

Buttigieg made the comments at a CNN town hall in Austin, Texas.
