Vice President Mike Pence spoke to troops stationed on the Syrian border Sunday and reassured them that getting the benefits and pay that the military is entitled to is the Trump administration’s main priority amid this government shutdown.
During the speech, Pence exposed the dirty tactics the Democrats are using to try and blame President Trump for a shutdown while not giving any thought to the heroic men and women of our armed forces that continue to fulfill their duties.
“Despite bipartisan support for a budget resolution, a minority in the Senate has decided to play politics with military pay, but you deserve better.”
Even during a government shutdown, our military heroes are required to report for duty despite a potential long delay in receiving their paychecks. It is a ridiculous slap in the face to these hard working Americans that the Democrats have done this to them.
“We’re going to get this fixed. We’re going to meet our obligations to you and your families. I urge you, on behalf of your commander in chief, set aside any distractions, mind your mission, take care of one another.”
Pence reassured the troops that President Trump would make it his first priority to “reopen the government” and that they would refuse to reopen negotiations “on illegal immigration” until after Congress passes the budget resolution and gets these military members their rightful pay.
SHARE if you think these Democrats should lose their pay for causing a government shutdown because of their political biases!
