ZANESVILLE – Hundreds of supporters were in attendance for the “Workers for Trump” rally.

Pence, an Indiana native, was happy to be in the midwest. Numerous chants of things like “four more years” for President Trump could be heard from the large crowds. In a year that has seen many hard times and controversies surrounding law enforcement, Pence wanted to share his appreciation for the people who work every day and put their lives on the line to protect the people.

“They put their lives on the line every single day. When they put on that uniform and strap on a sidearm, they walk out the door and they count their live (as) more important than their own and those who are gathered here and everyone who serves in law enforcement deserves the respect of every American everyday. Would you show them how much you appreciate what they do to protect and serve our families everyday? God bless them all,.” Pence said.

Pence is proud of how the Trump Administration has created many more jobs not only in Ohio but in the United States for hardworking people.

“In three shorts years, you also know what happened across the Buckeye State. Under President Donald Trump, it was jobs…jobs…jobs. I mean after cutting taxes and red tape and after fighting for free and fair trade, putting American workers first, fighting for American energy (and) businesses large and small, (we) created more than 7 million good paying jobs all across the country,” Pence said.

Zanesville Mayor Don Mason and Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz spoke briefly at the event before Pence.
