INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Mike Pence will use Ronald Reagan’s family Bible when he’s sworn in as Donald Trump’s vice president Friday, the first person to use the Bible during an inauguration ceremony since the former president himself.
The former Indiana governor said in a statement that it is “humbling” to use the 40th president’s Bible when Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas administers the oath of office.
“President Ronald Reagan placed his faith in a loving God and the goodness of our country. He set out to change a nation and in doing so, he changed the world. In the march of history, Ronald Reagan’s time in office was limited, but his legacy inspired a generation and will continue beyond,” Pence said.
