Washington: Vice President Mike Pence took to Twitter late Sunday night to say he is “proud” that the Trump administration “is the first in decades” not to get the U.S. entangled in a new war.
“That’s Peace through Strength,” Pence tweeted.
In October, the White House issued a statement that touted military accomplishments that did not require a major deployment of troops. The statement pointed to the deaths of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and the Iranian general, Qasem Soleimani as military achievements.
Forbes ran an article in December that said no matter your feelings about Trump’s term in office, he has done more “in four years to shift the vector of U.S. military preparations than most accomplish in eight.”
Pence visited troops at Fort Drum, on the northern border of New York State on Sunday.
Now that Pence’s loyalty to Trump was shaken after the January Capitol riot, he decided to skip Wednesday morning’s farewell ceremony for President Trump at Joint Base Andrews. He officially announced on Tuesday that he and outgoing second lady Karen Pence would attend the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on January 20 in front of the US Capitol.
