Vice President Mike Pence visited Michigan on Tuesday to tout the accomplishments of President Donald Trump and to campaign for his re-election.

Pence outlined the President's foreign and domestic policy accomplishments to a crowd of Trump supporters at a suburban Detroit hotel at a Keep America Great rally.

Earlier in the day, Pence spoke in Lansing at a Michigan Farm Bureau event.

The Vice President praised Trump for "embracing his role as leader of the free world," and for standing up for American jobs, and for faith, family and the American flag.

Pence said Trump stands without apology behind the men and women of law enforcement.

And he said under the Trump Administration, more than 190 conservative federal judges have been confirmed.

"Four more years means more judges. Four more years means more support for our troops," said Pence. "And it's going to take at least four more years to drain that swamp."

Pence said he's proud to support a president whom he called the most pro-life president in U.S. history.

Pence said the American economy is booming, and he credited Trump administration actions, including cutting taxes and rolling back regulations.

He called on voters to reject what he called Senator Bernie Sander's socialist agenda.

"Thanks to the confidence Michigan placed in this president, in this president's leadership," Pence said. "In three short years, we've made America Great Again."
