The vice president, appearing immediately after President Trump's chief strategist Steve Bannon torched the media in a uncommon public look, also criticized the media and "elites" for missing Trump's victory.

"They are nonetheless attempting to dismiss him," he mentioned.

Pence also praised Trump's initially month in workplace, calling his cabinet secretaries the "A-group" and praising Trump's nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

"You have elected a man for president who by no means quits, and never ever backs down. He is a fighter, he is a winner," he stated.

Pence thanked the crowd for their help and urged them to stay active.

"Our fight didn't finish on November the 8th ... the fight goes on," Pence mentioned. "This, my buddies, is our time."
