Monica Sanchez | June 18, 2019

A fiery Vice President Mike Pence at President Donald Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign rally in Orlando, Fla., Tuesday night slammed Democratic presidential hopefuls advocating for socialism, saying that the choice come Election Day "will not just be a choice between two candidates -- it will be a choice between two futures: a future with more freedom or a future with more government.”

“Today, Democrats openly advocate socialism,” said Pence, drawing boo’s from the audience, “an economic system that has impoverished millions of people around the world and stole the liberties of generations.”

“But it was freedom, not socialism, that gave us the most prosperous economy in the history of the world," he continued. "It was freedom, not socialism, that ended slavery, won two world wars, and stands today as a beacon of hope for all the world.”

“The moment America becomes a socialist country is the moment America ceases to be America," Pence fired. "So as the president said in his State of the Union address, so we must say with one voice, America will never be a socialist country.”

The crowd went wild.
