Americans are recognising the 2016 US presidential election as a choice between change and the status quo, Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence said today adding that the Trump campaign is on the offensive.
“We’re taking a message to make America great again all across this country. And I think literally, literally by the hour, the American people are recognising this election is a choice between change and the status quo.
It’s between a stronger, more prosperous America with Donald Trump, and Hillary Clinton is someone who will continue the same failed policies that have weakened America at home and abroad,” Pence told Fox News.
He said that the campaign has “tremendous momentum” and is on “offence” and that he couldn’t be “more excited”.
“And the Clinton campaign is literally on defence, trying to shore up blue states around the country in the waning days of the campaign,” Pence said.
Refuting reports that Hispanic-Americans are supporting Clinton, Pence said Americans from every category want change.
“I stopped by and had some Cuban coffee at a classic stop in Miami. Karen and I had a hard time getting through the place with people that were enthusiastic about Donald Trump’s stand for a stronger America at home and abroad, getting this economy moving, and repealing Obamacare,” he said.
Pence also alleged Clinton and her foundation are under a current investigation by the FBI.
“We just found out this morning that she had her maid print off classified information, according to revelations in The New York Post. We commend the FBI for following the facts and reopening the investigation,” he said.
Republicans, he said, are coming home and recognising the need to elect Trump as the next president and re-elect a strong Republican majority.
“Republicans are coming home with independence and Democrats at their side, to make sure that Hillary Clinton is never elected president of the United States,” he said.
Pence also reiterated that the Trump campaign will accept the election results.
“But I think both campaigns have also been very clear that in the event of disputed results, they reserve all legal rights and remedies,” he said.
