On Saturday, Vice President Mike Pence gave a commencement speech at Liberty University.
Pence’s speech was well-rounded, where he discussed how the Trump Administration has been upholding the Constitution, defending American liberties and building the economy, all in an effort to help make American lives better than ever.
Pence said, “We have a President and an administration that is standing strong for all the liberties we cherish — the freedom of speech, the freedom of religion. And we stand, without apology, for the sanctity of human life.”
He went on to tell Liberty grads that they couldn’t have picked a better time to graduate because “jobs are coming back and America is back.” And they are “entering a growing American economy.”
Pence said that as a result of the growing economy, 5.8 million jobs have been created in the two years since Trump has taken office.
He also made mention that the unemployment rate is at a 50-year low and there are more people working in America than ever before in history. If that wasn’t enough, Pence had one more historical announcement to make on the current status of the jobs market. Videos Below
Pence said, “For the first time ever, there are more job openings in America, than there are Americans looking for work.”
He added, “Not that Liberty graduates are going to have any trouble finding a job. I can promise the Liberty name carries great weight with employers all over the country.” Videos Below
