Pence emphasized the Trump administration’s efforts to rebuild the military, cut taxes and regulations and renegotiate trade deals, saying Trump had delivered for the American people “despite incredible opposition by the Democrats and their allies in the media.”
“Under President Donald Trump’s leadership, we have made America great again,” Pence continued. “But to keep America great, New Hampshire, we need four more years.”
Pence was greeted by New Hampshire’s Republican governor, John Sununu, upon his arrival in the state. As he approached the State House, he was met with a handful of protesters as well as Trump-Pence supporters, who greeted him with chants of “four more years.”
