Vice President Pence on Thursday visited the famed New York military academy West Point and received a loud cheer from cadets when he mentioned President Trump and the new push against ISIS.
“Make no mistake about it: President Trump and this administration and this country will not rest until these enemies are destroyed and our nation is safe again,” he said, according to Politico.
