Over the weekend, both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence rocked the house at CPAC.
The audience of conservatives across the nation made their support well known through applause.
And there wasn’t a point that brought in more applause than when Mike Pence said three words we’ve all been waiting for.
Vice President Mike Pence’s speech at CPAC was focused on the slogan, “Promises made, promises kept.”
He listed a plethora of things that President Trump has been able to accomplish.
Pence mentioned tax cuts, reduced regulations, and great judicial appointments along with a ton of other accomplishments.
But he didn’t just focus on the promises that have been kept; he also pledged to complete other promises that they had not had the chance to fulfill yet.
Among those promises is building a wall on the border with Mexico.
Pence squelched any doubt that the wall is still a priority by stating “make no mistake about it, we’re gonna build that wall.”
Immediately after making that statement, the crowd went wild with applause, and chants of “build that wall!”
As reported by Breitbart:
“OXON HILL, Maryland — “Make no mistake about it, we’re gonna build that wall,” declared Vice President Mike Pence from the stage of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Thursday morning.
“Build that wall! Build that wall! Build that wall!” came chants from the crowd in response to the Vice President’s assurance that the Trump administration will build a wall along the U.S. southern border.
Building the border wall was a cornerstone pledge of then-candidate Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Just over a year into the Trump administration, Congress has yet to approve funding to complete the project.
In 2006, Democrats and Republicans joined together in sanctioning of the Secure Fence Act. However, the President’s efforts to secure funding for building a wall along the southern border have been met with heavy opposition from Democrats in his administration’s first year.
Eight border wall prototypes were unveiled in October of last year and have since endured testing to determine effectiveness.
The Vice President’s message at CPAC focused heavily on the slogan “promises made, promises kept,” listing first year Trump administration accomplishments from rolling back regulations and tax cuts to judicial appointments, reinstating the Mexico City policy, and approving the Keystone and Dakota Pipelines. These were just a few of the accomplishments Pence highlighted.”
Building a border wall was the boldest of President Trump’s campaign promises.
Despite the fact that Democrats already supported building a fence, they came vehemently against President Trump’s idea to build a wall.
But regardless of the opposition from Democrats, his supporters strongly support building a wall.
The crowd at CPAC overwhelmingly supported the President.
In the straw poll at the convention, Trump brought in a 93% approval rating, which shows almost unilateral support in the convention.
Do you think President Trump will succeed in his plan to build the wall?
