Vice President Mike Pence was in Pleasant Prairie Wednesday to talk trade policy.

The vice president was supposed to visit Pleasant Prairie on Oct. 17, but the event was rescheduled due to Pence's trip to Turkey.

Pence was a part of an event at the Uline Warehouse in Pleasant Prairie where he addressed the United States-Mexico-Canada agreement (USMCA).

The event is called "USMCA: A Better Deal for American Workers" and the vice president spoke about how the new trade deal "will hugely benefit the economy and American workers in the Pleasant Prairie area, the state of Wisconsin, and in our great nation as a whole," according to a news release.
