Pence Arrives at Munich Conference With Allies Questioning U.S. Leadership

  • Munich Security Conference signals concerns about Trump
  • Stage set for appearance with Chinese, Russian officials


"....Vice President Mike Pence arrived at Europe’s big annual security conference on Friday, determined to push back against a common perception that the U.S. has vacated its role as leader of the free world.


Pence joined a large bipartisan U.S. delegation at the Munich Security Conference where he will face an unusually high-level Chinese contingent as well as Russian push back over the U.S. decision to suspend involvement in the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces treaty.


U.S. allies who see the Trump administration itself as a problem to manage will be as big a challenge as the Russian and Chinese delegations..
