Vice President Pence warned this election is a choice on whether “America remains America.”
At a campaign rally in Mosinee on Wednesday, Pence told viewers if Dem presidential candidate Joe Biden wins, he would only serve as a “Trojan horse for the radical left.”
“This election is really a choice between a Trump recovery and a Biden depression,” he said. “I promise you we’re going to make America great again, again.”
Pence spent the majority of his speech praising the first three years of the Trump presidency, arguing the administration successfully “made America great again” with a growing economy through 2019.
He also later mentioned the COVID-19 pandemic. He said Trump’s policies have been “protecting the vulnerable” against the virus, which so far has killed more than 227,000 Americans, and that the president “saved untold American lives.”
The VP again promised a coronavirus vaccine would be available by the end of the year, and then quickly pivoted to promises of “opening up” the country again, as many areas reach record-high daily case counts.
Responding to the event, Biden Deputy Campaign Manager and Communications Director Kate Bedingfield focused on White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows’ recent comment that the administration is “not going to control the pandemic. We are going to control the fact that we get vaccines, therapeutics and other mitigation areas.”
