Pence urged the Biden administration to continue Trump’s policies on China, saying “I urge the incoming administration to stay the course, do what we’ve done: stand up to Chinese aggression and trade abuses.”
Pence also touted the Trump admin’s war record.
“I’m proud to say, with just a few days left in this administration, this this is the first administration in decades not to get America into a new war,” he said.
After his speech, Pence spent additional time mingling with sailors on the tarmac. He wore a fighter jacket they had gifted him.
