Vice President Mike Pence chose to Twitter late Sunday night to say he's"proud" the Trump government"is the first in years" to not find the U.S. entangled in a war that is new.
In October, the White House issued a announcement that touted military achievements which didn't call for a significant deployment of troops. The statement pointed to the deaths of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi along with the Iranian overall, Qasem Soleimani as army accomplishments.
Forbes ran an article in December that no matter your feelings about Trump's term in office, he's completed more"in four years to alter the vector of U.S. military trainings than many accomplish in eight"
Trump, on the other hand,"purchased the U.S. army four decades of relative peace to reconstruct from endless wars"
Trump's critics could probably highlight what they predicted reckless threats to nations like Iran and North Korea as an instance of his own bellicose nature. However, his overtures into Kim Jong-un, though they didn't pan out, was viewed by some critics as a true attempt for a diplomatic breakthrough.
Pence visited troops in Fort Drum, which sits on the northern boundary of New York State on Sunday. He called a speech that he gave there as his closing address as vice presidentaccording to North Country Public Radio.
The report stated that Pence thanked the 10th Mountain Division and pointed out the branch was deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq almost 50 occasions since 2001.
