Vice-President Mike Pence made his third appearance in Michigan in just over a month. He told a crowd the President Trump's economic policies are helping our state and he remembered Rich DeVos.

The vice president spoke at a Mill Steel’s manufacturing plant on Grand Rapids southeast side last night.

He touted President Trump’s tax reform policies.

“Confidence is back," said Vice-President Pence. "In a word, the heartland and all of America is back and we are just getting started Michigan."

Last month, Vice-President Pence attended a fundraiser for US Senate Candidate John James and attended a GOP unity luncheon after the Michigan primary.

The vice president also took time during the political rally to remember Rich DeVos.

The Grand Rapids philanthropist and Amway co-founder, died last week from complications from an infection. DeVos was 92.

"Rich DeVos was a great American," said Vice-President Pence. "He lived a great life. A life of family and faith in America, and faith in God, and Rich DeVos will be missed.”

An invitation-only Celebration of Life Service for Rich DeVos will take place Thursday at LaGrave Avenue Christian Reformed Church.

On Wednesday, more than 1,000 people visited with the DeVos family including children Dick, Dan, Cheri, and Doug. Daughter-in-law and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos also welcomed guests.
