Vice President Mike Pence Talks Tax Cuts During Minnesota Visit
Vice President Mike Pence made a rare visit to Minnesota this week to promote the Trump administration's newly passed tax cuts. The event at the Minneapolis Convention Center had more of a campaign rally feel to it. Pence said the tax cuts are helping to spur more growth in the economy.
