Pence says Biden will bring “Socialism and decline” and Trump ensures “America Remains America”
Vice President Mike Pence delivered a compelling speech at the Republican National Convention (RNC) on Wednesday night in support of the reelection of President Donald Trump.
“We stand at a crossroads, America,” Vice President Mike Pence pointed out.
“It’s not so much whether America will be more conservative or more liberal, more Republican or more Democrat,” Pence said. “The choice in this election is whether America remains America.”
“President Trump set our nation on a path to freedom and opportunity from the very first day of this administration,” Pence continued. “But Joe Biden would set America on a path of socialism and decline.”
“It’s whether we will leave to our children and our grandchildren a country grounded in our highest ideals of freedom, free markets, and the unalienable right to life and liberty — or whether we will leave to our children and grandchildren a country that is fundamentally transformed into something else,” Pence added.
“When you consider their agenda it’s clear: Joe Biden would be nothing more than a Trojan horse for a radical left. The choice in this election has never been clearer and the stakes have never been higher.”

Trump calls for drug tests before debate with Biden
President Donald Trump wants Joe Biden and himself to take a drug test before the first presidential debate in September, claiming Biden’s improvement during Democratic primary debates was the result of drugs.
President Trump offered no evidence to support his claims nor did he mention any particular drug he believed Biden may have taken. Mr. Trump only remarked that Biden had shown marked improvement during the March 15 debate between Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) compared to previous contests.
“We are going to call for a drug test,” Trump said during an interview with the Washington Examiner. “It wasn’t that he was Winston Churchill, because he wasn’t, but it was a normal, boring debate. You know, nothing amazing happened.”
“I don’t know how he could have been so incompetent in his debate performances and then all of a sudden be OK against Bernie,” Trump continued. “All I can tell you is that I’m pretty good at this stuff. I look. I watched him in the debates with all of the different people. He was close to incompetent, if not incompetent. And against Bernie he was normal.”
“And I say, how does that happen?” Trump asked.
The Biden campaign responded by denying the former vice president was taking any medications during the debates and implied President Trump was a liar.
Historic civil rights figure, says: If you do vote for Biden, you don’t know history”
Clarence Henderson, in African-American who participated in the historic “Greensboro sit-in,” a series of nonviolent protests in 1960 where young Black students refused to leave a segregated lunch counter after being denied service, Daily Wire reported.
Henderson touted the accomplishments of Trump for the African-American community, while criticizing Biden and the violent protesting across America.
Speaking at the Republican National Convention on Wednesday night, Henderson ran down the laundry list of accomplishments President Donald Trump had made for the black community, as well as recalled his battles against racism 60 years ago.
Henderson spoke of knowing and experiencing what real racism is and decried claims that President Donald Trump is a racist.
“Our actions inspired similar protests throughout the South against racial injustice,” Henderson recalled. “In the end, segregation was abolished and our country and moved a step closer to true equality for all. That is what actual peaceful protests can accomplish.”
“Americans, voters all over the country who the media has tried to convince to conform to the same democratic talking points,” Henderson said.
“Do you know what that will get you? The same old results. Joe Biden had the audacity to say if you don’t vote for him, you are not black. To that, I say, if you do vote for Biden, you don’t know your history.”
