MIAMI, Fla. — It’s been a busy week for Vice-President Mike Pence, who has been out campaigning hard. Especially, with President Trump just getting back out there after his bout with coronavirus.
The former Indiana governor was in Miami on Thursday speaking to a group of supporters of President Trump among south Florida’s South American/Cuban immigrant community. Pence called for the end to the reign of Nicolas Maduro.
“In Venezuela, under President Donald Trump, America has stood against dictatorship and oppression,” Pence exclaimed to the gathering. “We have made it clear that Maduro must go and democracy must be restored.”
Pence also spoke on the recent news that former Columbian president and senator Alvaro Uribe has been released from house arrest. He had been confined to his home over accusations of bribery and witness tampering in the case of his possible involvement in massacres that ended with the murder of supporters of the Columbian Communist Party.
Pence praised President Trump’s ending of appeasement with Cuba, which was brought on by former President Barack Obama.
Florida is a swing state and both candidates for president have been spending a lot of time in the sunshine state over the last couple of weeks. Pence was in Michigan and Wisconsin earlier this week and he plans to campaign in Pennsylvania this weekend.
Election day is less than three weeks away.
