We stand on the brink of one of the most important elections in our lifetime. Looking back over the last four years, the American people — and particularly people of faith —have a lot to be proud of. Four years ago, Donald J. Trump announced his candidacy, and a movement was born. Millions of forgotten men and women across the nation rallied behind President Trump because they shared his belief that America could be strong and prosperous again. That was especially true of people of faith, who under the last administration saw a steady assault on our most cherished values and God-given liberties. They trusted President Trump to deliver on his promise to defend those values and liberties, and that’s exactly what he’s done.
For decades, Presidents in both parties promised to move the American Embassy in Israel. But it was President Donald Trump who kept his word, and today that embassy is finally located in Jerusalem, the capital of the State of Israel. That move helped set the stage for the recently signed Abraham Accords, in which for the first time in a quarter century, two Arab nations recognized Israel — and more are on the way.
Likewise, since day one, President Trump has stood without apology for the sanctity of human life.
On just his fourth day in office, President Trump reinstated — and later expanded — the “Mexico City policy,” which ended taxpayer funding of programs that provide or promote abortion abroad.
It was my honor to be the first Vice President to speak at the March for Life. And this past January, President Trump became the first President to address the March for Life in person.
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris support abortion-on-demand — even up to the moment of birth. They’ve called for historic increases in funding to Planned Parenthood, and even repealing the Hyde Amendment, which prevents taxpayer funding of abortions. They even blocked the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act, which would have required medical care be provided to those who survived attempted abortions.
President Trump, on the other hand, has called on Congress to end late-term abortion once and for all, and recently signed an Executive Order protecting all babies born alive.
And in perhaps my proudest moment as Vice President, I cast the tie-breaking vote in the Senate for a law that allowed states to defund Planned Parenthood — and President Trump signed the bill.
