PLEASANT PRAIRIE — Vice President Mike Pence's visit to Pleasant Prairie to talk trade policy has been rescheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 23.

NBC News reports the vice president is scheduled to meet with Turkish President Recep Erdoğan on Thursday, citing the White House.

Pence will be headed to Turkey as part of a delegation to "voice the US commitment to reach an immediate ceasefire and conditions for a negotiated settlement."

The vice president was originally part of an event at the Uline Warehouse in Pleasant Prairie on Thursday, which will address the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

Called "USMCA: A Better Deal for American Workers," the vice president was going to talk 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.
