In the midst of the ongoing “defund the police” campaign, Vice President Pence has spoken—loud and clear.
He appeared at an event full of police officers rallying around the president.
During the rally, Vice President Pence not only supported our men and women in blue—he after Joe Biden and his recent remarks about police officers.
As more and more Democrats appear to be criticizing law enforcement, Pence reaffirms that he and Trump stand by them:
On Thursday, Vice President Mike Pence spoke at a “Cops For Trump” rally in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, where he delivered a ringing endorsement of the nation’s law enforcement community and a slashing denunciation of former Vice President Joe Biden.
Mike Pence called out the recent trend among local Democrat leaders to defund police departments.
He even highlighted how Democrats in D.C. are falling on the side of the people in the streets causing chaos. He mentioned Nancy Pelosi’s smear against federal agents when she called them “stormtroopers.”
Pence then focused on Joe Biden’s increasing hostility toward law enforcement agencies. Here’s what Pence said about Biden:
Even Joe Biden said not long ago that well-armed police become the enemy when confronting lawlessness in our streets.
Those are some strong words for the Democrat nominee.
The vice president made a sharp contrast between the left’s agenda against police and the Trump administration’s ongoing support for PDs.
He said he, the president, and the “overwhelming majority” of Americans are on the side of law enforcement.
Pence praised police officers, alongside first responders, for their work in recent months. He said police are “the best people in this country.”
His words are markedly different than then common narrative being spread by Democrats.
In the liberal-leaning media as well as government, Democrats have slandered cops over the actions of a few. They have applauded the ongoing chaos, refusing to let police officers restore the peace.
Police unions have complained that they have been slandered in the media without being allowed to be “part of the conversation.”
In this rally, Mike Pence is taking the opportunity to win over America’s police officers and those who support them.
By making a clear distinction between the Trump campaign and what leading Democrats have recently said, Pence is trying to earn the support of voters who want law and order.
- Vice President Pence spoke at a recent “Cops for Trump” event.
- He called out the left’s ongoing campaign to defund police.
- Pence vowed that the Trump administration will support police departments.
