Someone might want to give this some fact-checking.


Remarks by Vice President Pence at the Detroit Economic Club Luncheon

Issued on: August 19, 2019

The Sound Board Theater
Detroit, Michigan

12:15 P.M. EDT

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Well, thank you all. Thank you for that warm welcome. To Gerry Anderson, thank you for those kind words. And what a pleasure it is to be able to bring back home the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, a son of Detroit, and a great, great champion for every American. (Applause.) Join me in thanking sen- or Secretary Ben Carson again. (Applause.)

And our economy is growing. The average household has seen their income go up by more than $5,000 a year. Wages are rising at the fastest pace in more than a decade. And maybe most important of all to the President and me: that wages are rising fastest for blue-collar working Americans. The forgotten men and women of America are forgotten no more. (Applause.)
