On Wednesday, Americans will have a new president. After a long-debated, hard-fought, and intense 2020 presidential election (and post legal challenges), Joe Biden will assume the role of the U.S. president in two more days.

As the Trump presidency concludes, members of its administration are working hard to wrap things up on as positive a note as possible. This has, interestingly enough, placed Vice President Mike Pence in an interesting and unique spotlight.

Last week, Americans learned that Pence will be present at Biden’s inauguration, although, Trump will not attend. Over the past weekend, the outgoing vice president also met with U.S. troops to underscore the work of the Trump administration, Breitbart News confirms.

The Final Meetings with the Troops

On the 16th and 17th, Pence spoke fondly about the Trump administration’s relationship with America’s military over the past four years. During remarks at Naval Air Station Lemoore, the vice president noted his pride in the Trump administration steering clear from getting the nation into any new wars.

While addressing military sailors, Pence additionally drew attention to relevant accomplishments of the Trump administration. The mentioned accomplishments included defense spending increases, the restoration of democracy, and the collective strengthening of the U.S. military.

The Trump administration is furthermore able to claim the deaths of terrorists Qasem Soleimani and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as military-related achievements.

Peace Through Strength

Maintaining peace through strength is something that President Trump campaigned upon; it’s also a vow that his administration upheld during its term in the White House.

Yesterday, Vice President Pence also spoke with Fort Drum-based troops. In his final address as the nation’s vice president, Pence noted his appreciation of the American troops, along with their consistent service and sacrifices for the country.

On Wednesday morning, President Trump will give his final remarks as America’s commander-in-chief before boarding Air Force One. The 45th president is expected to discuss his accomplishments over the past four years and project hope for the future of America that lies ahead.

In light of this week being the week of Biden’s inauguration, security remains at very high levels in critical places across the country.
