President Trump Champions “the American Dream”
US President Donald Trump has “renewed the American dream,” VP Mike Pence said Saturday, and Democrats cannot threaten the nation’s vision, their agenda as voiced by HBO’s Bill Maher is: destroy the American economy, bring on another great recession.
“After 8 years of a static economy, stagnant wages and being told that no growth is the new normal, this president has started a great American comeback,” our VP Pence said at the closing dinner of the annual meeting of the Faith & Freedom Coalition in Washington.
“After 8 years of retreat, America’s advancing because President Donald Trump has restored American strength at home and abroad.”
Saturday’s dinner ended the coalition’s 3-day meeting at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in DC.
Other speakers during the gathering included Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Paul Ryan, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Health and Human Services Secretary Ben Carson.
Looking to the November midterms, VP Pence said Democrats have been focusing on the elections “since around 3a on November 9, 2016.”
“They are hard at it, so we must be,” he said.
“You do not have to wonder what would happen if Nancy Pelosi became speaker of the House again,” he added, who was in the chamber from Y 2001 to 2013 before he was elected Indiana’s governor.
“I was there the last time it happened. I know what I’m talking about.”
The Vice President called the midterms a “choice.”
“It is a choice between resistance and renewal. It is a choice between obstruction and optimism.
“It is a choice between an America of failed ideas and faltering will, or of an America of faith, freedom and renewed greatness.
“I know America will make the right choice again.”
As we saw Triple Crown winning jockey Mike Smith, 52 anni, do Saturday afternoon at Belmont: Thank you Jesus, I am so blessed, while he made the Sign of the Cross.
Have a terrific weekend.
