Pence promotes Trump tax cuts in downtown Cincinnati

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Vice President Mike Pence is in Cincinnati Tuesday to promote President Donald Trump's tax cuts.

He was the final speaker scheduled at "Tax Cuts to Put America First," event at The Westin Hotel on Fifth Street.

Other speakers discussed the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act Trump signed into law last year.

America First Policies is hosting the program. The non-profit organization promotes Trump's agenda and tax policy initiatives that, according to its website, work for all citizens and "put America first."

"It's been a year and a half of action, results and promises made and promises kept," Pence said. "What brings us here today... our President made a promise to keep the economy moving again. Since he took office, jobs are back, America is back, and we're just getting started."

Pence made a statement about never abolishing the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and thanked them for their service.

"From the first day of this administration, we've given law enforcement the respect they deserve. This administration will always stand with those who serve at every level. That includes the heroic men and women of customs and immigration enforcement," he said.

Later, Pence is scheduled attend two fundraisers.

One is for Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, the Republican candidate for governor against Democrat Richard Cordray.

Then Pence will travel to Toledo to stump for another Republican, Rep. Jim Renacci, who faces Democrat Sen. Sherrod Brown.
