Donald Trump’s running mate is meeting with the leader of the Greek Orthodox Church in America.

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence met Thursday with Archbishop Demetrios of America in the church’s ornate headquarters near Central Park in New York City.

Father Alexander Karloutsos began the meeting by talking about how the only church destroyed in the 9/11 attacks at the World Trade Center was Greek Orthodox.

Work is continuing to replace the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church.

The archbishop posed for pictures with Pence, his wife Karen and daughter Charlotte before the meeting was closed.

Donald Trump’s running mate is giving a pep talk to campaign workers and volunteers at Trump Tower.

Mike Pence, his wife and oldest daughter made a quick stop Thursday at the office where he made a sports analogy for the final two months of the race.

He told the story of congressman Jim Ryun, who was the first high school student to run a mile under four minutes. Pence said Ryun told him he would always “run through the tape” and not slow down at the finish line.

Pence says, “My only word to all of you is, ‘Let’s run through the tape the next 54 days.'”

Pence was to appear with Trump later Thursday for an economic policy speech in New York.
