MUSIC TO OUR EARS: Mike Pence Says ‘The Obama Era Of Weakening Our National Defense Is Over’

Mike Pence recently explained that those days are over.

Pence: ‘The Obama Era Of Weakening Our National Defense Is Over’

Vice President-elect Mike Pence said Tuesday President-elect Donald Trump will make rebuilding the military a top priority when he takes office, declaring to a cheering crowd at the Heritage Foundation, “the Obama era of weakening our national defense is over.”

“We’ve walked away from our commitment to be that arsenal of democracy in the world,” Pence said at the Heritage Foundation dinner held at the Trump hotel in D.C. He referred to what he called a hallowing out of the military under President Barack Obama.

Ticking off a list of stats to back up his assessment, such as a reduction in active duty forces, the smallest Navy since World War I, and the smallest standing Army since World War II, Pence said Trump would “rebuild” the military and “restore” the arsenal.

“I want to promise you the Obama era of weakening our national defense is over,” he said.

That is great news.
