Vice President Mike Pence repeated Trump’s message of “law and order,” as protests continue in Kenosha over the police shooting of Jacob Blake.
“The violence must stop, whether in Minneapolis, Portland or Kenosha,” Pence said. “We will have law and order on the streets of this country for every American of every race and creed and color.”
Like other convention speakers, Vice-President Mike Pence tried to direct focus to the pre-pandemic economy.
“In our first three years, we built the greatest economy in the world,” Pence said. “We made America great again. And then the coronavirus struck from China.”
