“I’m here today to introduce the man who will be my partner in this campaign and the White House, to fix our rigged system.”
With extended remarks lasting 28 minutes, Donald Trump formally introduced Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate at a campaign event held at the New York Midtown Hilton hotel.
Before bringing Pence onstage, Trump addressed the terror attack in Nice, and offered up extensive criticisms of his Democrat opponent. “What a difference between crooked Hillary Clinton and Mike Pence”, Trump said.
Trump continued with hallmarks of his standard stump speeches, but eventually brought Pence to the podium.
With a brief shake of the head, perhaps grateful at finally being allowed to speak, Pence opened his remarks:
“On behalf of my family here and looking on, would you join me in thanking Donald Trump, Melania, and his entire family for the sacrifices that they are making to ‘Make America Great Again'”
“I thank Donald Trump for the confidence you’ve placed in us, and I accept your invitation to run and serve as Vice President of the United States of America.”
“I come to this moment deeply humbled, but with a grateful heart. Grateful to God for his amazing grace. Grateful to my wonderful wife Karen and our three incredible kids, Michael, Charlotte, and Audrey. And grateful to this builder, this fighter, this patriotic American who has set aside a legendary career in business to build a stronger America, Donald J. Trump.”
