HOLLAND, MI — The Vice President made his way from Kalamazoo to Holland where he spoke in front of about 300 people, making his case for voters to give him and the president four more years.
“We’re here for one reason and one reason only: Michigan and America need four more years.” Pence declared at the rally in Holland.
The visit comes the same day as the house judiciary holds its first public impeachment inquiry hearing based on a report that some argue implicates the Vice President. When asked about it, the Vice President pushed back.
“In my meeting with Zelensky on President Trump’s behalf in Poland, we talked exclusively about president Trump’s concern about corruption in Ukraine, which president Zelensky was actually elected to confront and about president trump’s concern that Europe wasn’t doing enough.”
The President’s meeting with NATO leaders this week didn’t go smoothly- the president called Canada’s Justin Trudeau ‘two faced’ after a video surfaced of Trudeau mocking Trump.
“I really can’t add to what the president said but what I can tell you is that the relationship between the United States and Canada is very strong.”
Michigan is a hot battleground state in the road to the White House in 2020 - a state that President Trump won by only 10,000 votes before the state flipped many seats blue in the 2018 midterms. Pence says he’s not worried.
“Midterm elections are always a challenge for the party that’s in the White House and voter turnout is always different in those years. But in 2020, just like in 2016, Donald Trump is gonna be on the ballot and this time, we’re not just gonna have his vision for a more secure America, a more prosperous America, we’re gonna have the results.”
The Vice President left Holland and headed straight to Gerald R Ford airport in Grand Rapids to catch his flight on Air Force Two back to Washington DC. But he said in his speech that he plans to be back quite a bit before 2020.
