COLUMBIA, S.C.–Mike Pence spoke publicly for the first time since he left office as the Vice President of the United States Thursday night.
Pence, who was also Indiana’s governor at one point, spoke to the Palmetto Family Council, a South Carolina social conservative Christian group. His remarks focused on what he and Donald Trump accomplished in office from 2016-2020 while also taking issue with what President Biden has done so far in his first 100 days in office.
“But how times have changed,” said Pence. “In just 100 days, the Biden-Harris administration has launched an avalanche of liberal policies that threaten to derail all the progress that we made.”
Those policies Pence referred to are: defunding the police, open borders, what he calls “runaway spending”, “abandoning the right to life”, and plans for higher taxes.
Pence called serving alongside Donald Trump, “the greatest honor of my life.”
“It was four years of consequence, four years of results, and four years of promises made and promises kept,” said Pence. “In our first three years, we revived our economy, created seven million good-paying jobs and cutting taxes. We also rolled back regulations and became a net exporter of energy for the first time in 70 years.”
Pence did not say whether he would run for President in 2024.
