He asserted that President Donald Trump from day one has been working has been "undoing the job-destroying policies and executive orders of the last eight years." Pence said that businesses are reacting to Trump's "Buy American, Hire American" vision with optimism and investment in our country.

"Endless price hikes and red tape eat up time and money better spent growing businesses and benefitting workers. This administration will get our economy moving by passing the biggest tax reform since Ronald Reagan and cutting taxes across the board," he tweeted.
