Pence Uses Trump Admin Strategy To Pokes At Obama & Biden, ‘This Is The 1st Administration In Decades Not To Get America Into…
Over the weekend, Vice President Mike Pence held a series of speeches with troops to tout the Trump Administration policy of “peace through strength.”
“I’m proud to say, with just a few days left in this administration, this this is the first administration in decades not to get America into a new war,” Pence said.
Pence made the declaration during a speech at Naval Air Station Lemoore on Saturday a little under 40 miles from Fresno, California.
Pence was wearing a Navy green fighter pilot jacket and told a group of about 80 sailors that thanks to President Trump the military received the larges increase in spending since Ronald Reagan.
“We’ve restored the arsenal of democracy,” Pence said. “Our military is now more equipped than ever before.”

Unlike Democrats who are demanding that soldiers guarding the capitol are “vetted,” Pence thanked the 10th Mountain Division for their service overseas.
“There’s never been a day gone by that I and every American hasn’t been grateful to the 10th Mountain Division and every American hero in uniform,” Pence said.
Democrats like Rep. Steve Cohen are concerned that only 25% of the National Guard soldiers protecting possibly voted for Joe Biden.

During his term President Trump resisted the war hawks like former Defense Secretary Mattis and refused to wage a larger war in Syria, instead he quickly defeated ISIS and withdrew.
