Vice President Mike Pence, who was scheduled to visit Pleasant Prairie on Thursday, will be forgoing his trip to Wisconsin, a White House official stated Tuesday.

“As Vice President Pence mentioned last night, he will be leading a delegation to Turkey. We look forward to rescheduling,” the official stated.

Pence was dispatched to the Middle East by President Donald Trump.

As the U.S. military has begun its drawdown of troops in Syria, Turkey has increased its attacks on Kurdish forces.

On Monday, Pence said the U.S. is “simply not going to tolerate Turkey’s invasion of Syria any longer.”

Pence was scheduled to speak in Pleasant Prairie at Uline, 11559 80th St., at an event hosted by America First Policies, a nonprofit group that supports Trump.

The event titled “USMCA: A Better Deal for American Workers,” was scheduled to focus on the United States-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement.
