Viewed as a safe pair of hands, Pence, 57, has diverging views with Trump on his proposed Muslim ban and trade, and is more socially conservative, but he could help unify a divided party behind Trump’s White House bid. Trump was due to make his official announcement on his choice on Friday at 11 a.m. (1500 GMT) in Manhattan.
