Vice President Mike Pence arrives in Indianapolis, delivers speech touting USMCA

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Vice President Mike Pence returned to his home state of Indiana Thursday for the first day of a two-day trip in the Hoosier State.

The former Indiana governor delivered remarks around 1 p.m. at MacAllister Machinery. His remarks followed a panel discussion on the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) and its impact on Hoosier workers and companies.

The event was presented by America First Policies, which provided tickets at no cost. People did have to register in advance to attend.

The vice president touted the economic accomplishments of the Trump administration, leaning on job figures and manufacturing growth.

“This economy is working for every American,” Pence said.

A protester was heard yelling over Pence during his remarks.

“This economy is working for every American,” Pence said again as the protester was escorted off. “It’s true. Even for people who don’t agree with us!”

While Pence didn’t specifically mention the impeachment inquiry currently embroiling the administration, he did say the “latest accusations” were dividing the country.

The vice president will remain in Indiana tonight. On Friday, he’ll tour the Neurodiagnostic Institute and Advanced Treatment Center at Community Hospital East. He’ll then take part in a roundtable discussion with public health leaders.
