Vice President Mike Pence spent Labor Day in Wisconsin, touting the economic success under the Trump administration’s first term. Speaking at Dairyland Power Co. in La Crosse, the vice president criticized his opponent, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who also spent the day in Wisconsin. 

Harris is one of only ten senators to vote against the historic United States, Mexico, Canada Agreement (USMCA), which replaced the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). USMCA was passed with overwhelming bipartisan support.

Vice President Pence addressed the violence and rioting occurring in a handful of American cities, including Kenosha, Wisconsin. He drew an important distinction between the senseless violence being carried out by left-wing activists and peaceful protesting protected under the first amendment. Democrats disguise the riots as peaceful protest, and ignore the devastation caused by the violence. The vice president reaffirmed the administration’s commitment to law and order, after President Trump deployed federal law enforcement agents to control the violence.

Both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have yet to fully denounce the violent riots, and continually shrug the demonstrators off as peaceful.
