SOT, Mike Pence, US Vice President: "Now, Latino Americans know better than most about the cost of socialism. It's impoverished generations, it's stolen the liberty of millions. I know that for many of you in this room, many of your families fled socialist regimes in this hemisphere. And you came to freedom in America. You know, Latino Americans know that it was freedom, not socialism, that gave us the most prosperous and powerful nation in the history of the world. It was freedom. Latino Americans know that it was freedom, not socialism that ended slavery, won two World Wars and stands today as a beacon of hope for all the world. And so here at this kick-off of Latinos for Trump, we must say, as the president said in his State of the Union address, America will never be a socialist country."

SOT, Mike Pence, US Vice President: "It really is all about freedom. In fact, this president has stood strong for freedom in this country. And I'm proud to say, all across this hemisphere. As we speak, and over the last two years, President Trump has been standing strong with freedom-loving people in Venezuela with their legitimate president, Juan Guaido. And we will stand with the people of Venezuela until their libertad is restored."

SCRIPT
US Vice President Mike Pence launched the ‘Latinos for Trump’ coalition in Miami on Tuesday, as part of an effort to win over Latino voters ahead of the next presidential election in November 2020.
At the coalition launch, the Vice President attacked Democrat policies and accused the party of wanting to bring a ruinous form of socialism to the US.
“Latino Americans know better than most about the cost of socialism. It's impoverished generations, it's stolen the liberty of millions,” Pence said.
“And so here at this kick-off of Latinos for Trump, we must say, as the president said in his State of the Union address, America will never be a socialist country,” he told the cheering crowd.
The Vice President also re-affirmed Washington’s support for Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido.
