Former Vice President Mike Pence affirmed former President Donald Trump’s “America First” agenda during a speech Thursday at the Reagan library and warned that the Republican Party is the “last line of defense” against the Democrats’ liberal agenda.
“President Trump taught us what Republicans can accomplish when leaders stand firm on conservative principles and don’t back down,” he said, using as examples Trump-Pence accomplishments like becoming energy independent, getting tougher on China, and mobilizing the country to respond to the coronavirus.
Although Trump and Pence were not re-elected, they helped Republicans gain 15 seats in the House and got a larger percentage of the Hispanic and Black vote than previous candidates.
“We live in a time when the leaders in the Democratic Party routinely demean the American founding; Today, Democrats seek to rewrite our Constitution, our Second Amendment, to redefine the liberties enshrined in our Bill of Rights through their efforts to pack the Supreme Court and advance their radical agenda,” he said.
“As we forge an American Agenda for the future of our party, we must make it clear that the Republican Party will always defend the principles at the heart of our Republic,” he said, then warned, “If we don’t, no one else will.”
