Though President Trump's comments clarify his position on the matter, Vice President Mike Pence's policies have worried many in the LGBTQ community.
Pete Buttigieg spoke to Hugh Hewitt and discussed his opinions on Mike Pence.
"I don’t know what’s in his heart. But, if you’re in public office and you advance homophobic policies, on some level it doesn’t matter whether you do that out of political calculation or whether you do it out of sincere belief. The problem is, it’s hurting other people."
