Pence has been in Asia this week so that he could be at the frontlines of our conflict with North Korea. Fox News reported that on Wednesday, Pence landed on the USS Ronald Reagan, where he warned North Korea not to test the resolve of the U.S. military and promised that we would make an “overwhelming and effective” response to any use of conventional or nuclear weapons.
He explained that the Trump administration would “work diligently” with allies like Japan, China and other global powers to apply economic and diplomatic pressure on Pyongyang. Addressing the sailors directly, Pence said, “as all of you know, readiness is the key.”

“The United States of America will always seek peace but under President Trump, the shield stands guard and the sword stands ready,” Pence told the 2,500 sailors aboard the carrier at the U.S. Yokosuka naval base in Tokyo Bay.
“Those who would challenge our resolve or readiness should know, we will defeat any attack and meet any use of conventional or nuclear weapons with an overwhelming and effective American response,” Pence added.
