(WGTD)---Vice-President Mike Pence has canceled a planned trip to speak Thursday at Uline's facility in Pleasant Prairie.
A spokesman said Pence has been dispatched on short notice to lead a diplomatic mission to Turkey to try to stop that country's invasion of northern Syria. The incursion was triggered by President Trump's decision to withdraw a small number of U.S. troops from the border area.
Pence was to have headlined a panel discussion on the value of a proposed trade deal with Mexico and Canada.
The event, according to the spokesman, will be rescheduled.
