Vice President Mike Pence brought “greetings from Donald Trump” in a speech to European leaders at the Munich Security Conference over the weekend, and got not the round of rousing applause he was expecting, but….crickets.
At another conference last Thursday, Pence received a similar response waiting for a round of applause as he called on European leaders to join the United States in its withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.
Reporter Jonathan Allen and an MSNBC panel analyzed the response.
Said Allen: “This is the Munich security conference and the president of the United States not getting even a clap, not even a polite golf clap, this is unheard of. It’s embarrassing for the country…There are not a lot of our longtime allies that feel good about us at all, and specifically feel good about our president in any way, shape or form.”
