Vice President Pence Issues Heartfelt Message to Truckers and Warehouse Workers

We can only hope that this newfound appreciation for our overlooked-yet-essential Americans continues well after the threat of COVID-19 has passed. 

When Donald Trump was elected President, many Americans began to believe that a conservative awakening was on its way.  Folks young and old were jumping on board the Trump Train, yearning for a government that would bring jobs back to our nation and bolster our working class.

And it’s not that our working class wasn’t always important – these people are the backbone of our entirety society.  The issue was that some of these professions had lost the respect that they deserve.

Now, in our time of trouble, we are reacquainting ourselves with the importance of our nation’s truck drivers, warehouse workers, and factory employees.

During the stop, he spoke for several minutes with Earnest Allen, a delivery truck driver for Walmart Transportation, who continue to ship products and food despite the pandemic.

“I had to come out and see a truck driver,” Pence said. “You guys are burning up miles every day making sure the American people have food, supplies.”

The vice president also spoke to forklift workers in the center thanked them for doing their part.

He even displayed his subtle wit.

“I like that hat,” he told one man in the center who wore a camouflage Trump hat.

We can only hope that this newfound appreciation for our overlooked yet essential Americans continues well after the threat of COVID-19 has passed.
