Mike Pence diatribe against socialism
Mike Pence, the US Vice President, offered another glimpse of the 2020 presidential election by giving the Conservatives a rant against socialism.
At the conservative political action conference that was held in the national harbor near Washington, Mr. Pence was applauded by a warning against the risk of "taking a brutal left turn" which would deprive Americans of freedom.
Donald Trump MP commented on the policies presented by several Democratic candidates: "Under the guise of Medicare for All and a Green New Deal, Democrats adopt the same dilapidated economic theories as those that have impoverished nations and smothered Century freedoms. This system is socialism. "
Senator Bernie Sanders is a "declared socialist," said Pence, "but it's not just him," as other candidates have denounced the failures of socialism with "inimitant slogans and smooth media campaigns."
The choice in the next election is "between freedom and socialism, between personal responsibility and dependence on the government," continued Pence. "The moment America becomes a socialist country is the moment America ceases to be America."
Referring to Trump's speech on the state of the union, he added: "As the president said 24 days ago, we must therefore speak with one voice:" America will never become a socialist country ".
The participants stood up and chanted: "USA! UNITED STATES!"
The Vice President added: "We know where socialism leads. You want socialism? Just look at Venezuela … If we offer a choice between freedom and socialism, the American people will choose freedom each time. "
Pence also defended Trump's peace talks with Kim Jong-un of North Korea in Hanoi. "As President Trump said on leaving, sometimes we have to walk … President Trump will remain firm until we achieve the complete denuclearization of North Korea."
The Vice President is also committed to completing the construction of a wall at the US-Mexico border. "I'll make you a promise: before we're done, we'll build everything."
