Mike Pence in Speeches at CPAC (2020s)


On Abortion: Trump is the most pro-life president in American history

I couldn't be more proud to be vice president to a president who stands without apology for the sanctity of human life. That is what makes it so remarkable that every leading Democrat running for president has actually said that there is no room in today's Democratic Party for pro-life voters. So let me say to every pro-life American--Republican, independent, or Democrat--you have a home in today's Republican Party. President Donald Trump is the most pro-life president in American history.

On Education: Give parents right to choose: public, private, parochial

With four more years, we will give every parent in America the right to choose where their children go to school: public, private, parochial, or homeschool.

On Foreign Policy: The world knows this: America stands with Israel

If the world knows nothing else, the world knows this, America stands with Israel. This president has done more to support our most cherished allies than anyone could have imagined just three short years ago. We got out of the Iran nuclear deal. He recognized Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights, and President Donald Trump moved the American embassy to Jerusalem, the capital of the state of Israel.

On Free Trade: China's on notice that the era of economic surrender is over

From day one, this president has fought for free and fair trade. After more than 30 years of trade policy that seemed to be more about just managing economic decline, the U.S.M.C.A. and the phase one China deal marked the beginning of a new era of international trade that puts American jobs and American workers first. The president put China on notice that the era of economic surrender is over. We will continue to stand strong until China opens their markets.

On Government Reform: Impeachment 2020: Trump was acquitted forever

Best of all, just a few short weeks ago, after three years of endless investigations and a partisan impeachment, the U.S. Senate cleared our president on all charges. Justice was served. Our Constitution defended and President Donald Trump was acquitted forever.

On Health Care: COVID: February 2020--We're ready for anything

Allow me to address an issue that I know is on the hearts and minds of people all across this country: the potential impact of the coronavirus here in America. President Donald Trump has no higher priority than the health, safety, and wellbeing of the American people. While the risk to the American public remains low, as the president said yesterday, we're ready. We're ready for anything.

On Homeland Security: We've made the strongest military in history of the world

This president has actually signed the largest increases in our national defense in more than a generation. We are once again giving our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and Coast Guard, the resources and support they need to accomplish their missions and defend this nation. Under this president, we have made the strongest military in the history of the world, that renewed American strength. We are standing tall on the world stage again.

On Immigration: National security starts with border security

Pence: This president knows that national security starts with border security. Under the president's leadership, we made historic investments to secure our border and end the crisis of illegal immigration. Mexico is doing more than ever before to secure our southern border, and apprehensions are down by 80% in the last 12 months. And we have already started to build that wall on the southern border of the United States.

Crowd: Build that wall!

Pence: We are building it. we are building it.

On Principles & Values: Socialism has failed everywhere it has been tried

We've got to tell the truth about socialism and the benefits of freedom. When many in this rising generation speak of socialism, they think of better health care, education or a cleaner environment. But the reality of socialism is very different. Socialism has failed everywhere it has been tried, in every era, on every continent, and among every class of people. Freedom works. Socialism does not.

Keep faith finally that when we hold the banner of freedom high, when we make freedom our cause, we make his work on this earth our own for the spirit of the Lord is freedom. That means freedom always wins.
