Mike Pence speech canceled in DC due to 'severe weather'

Former Vice President Mike Pence’s planned speech at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, DC was canceled at the last minute Monday after his flight had to be diverted due to “severe weather.”

Pence had been scheduled to address the crowd at 5 p.m. before a storm threw his travel plans into chaos, a Heritage Foundation spokesperson confirmed to The Post.

“Due to unexpected severe weather and flight delays, the program with Vice President Pence is postponed,” the foundation said on its website shortly before the speech was set to begin.

“We are working to reschedule for a new date and time and will follow up as soon it is confirmed. We apologize for the inconvenience.”

The ex-veep had been slated to deliver a set of conservative policies that “he believes will save our great nation,” according to the event details.

His speech was expected to push a “freedom agenda” that would create “more economic opportunity” and “restore American leadership on the world stage,” according to prepared remarks obtained earlier by CNN.

Pence’s address was supposed to be held roughly 24 hours before his former running mate, President Donald Trump, was set to return DC for the first time since leaving office.
