Vice President Mike Pence spoke to a crowd of hundreds at the American Legion’s national convention in Indianapolis Wednesday. He made a case for the Trump administration’s re-election in 2020.
He contrasted that work against some Democrats in Congress, who he says advocate for “a system that has impoverished millions.”
“It was freedom, not socialism that gave us the strongest and most prosperous nation in the history of the world – it was freedom,” Pence says.
Pence says that progress would be undone by losing in 2020. He asked the crowd to engage with younger voters.
“And so as we look ahead, let me remind you, we can’t just settle to win the next election, we’ve got to win the next generation,” Pence says.
The American Legion’s national convention ends Aug. 29.
