Vice-president elect Mike Pence has been, so far, one of Trump’s best choices in his cabinet, despite Ann Coulter’s thoughts during that time that this was a controversial decision.
However, Pence has been nothing short from brilliant. One of the first things he did when he was put in charge of Trump’s transition team was to discard all lobbyists and place new rules that will ensure that lobbyists will have no influence in Trump’s administration.
One of the big differences between Obama and Pence is that Pence knows how to show respect four our veterans.
On Wednesday, Mike appeared, unannounced at a WWII memorial because he did not want to draw attention on himself, but rather leave it for the U.S. veterans.
Here’s what one official remarked.
“Pence wanted to sit in the audience and not be recognized.”
“He wanted his presence to be a gesture of respect to the veterans in attendance.”
“If the event was placed on the Vice President-elect’s official schedule, Secret Service would have had to lockdown the entire area, subjecting the veterans in attendance, some in wheelchairs, to metal detectors and other invasive security procedures.”
Mike left a wreath, honored the vets, and left deferentially, just as he arrived. This is how one expresses his respect to the men and women in uniform. Kudos to Pence. Kudos to the veterans.
