"Do I declare this trip a success? Yes I do," declares @VP in Mexico City.
"I will and I have before," replies @VP when asked by @JDiamond1 if she'll visit the US-Mexico border.
"It may not be evidenced overnight but it will have a positive impact," says @VP of what her trip to #Guatemala and #Mexico has accomplished.
"I voted for you," a @UnivisionNews reporter tells @VP before asking her question. 😮
"How soon will you" go to the border?, asks @albamonica.

"It would do a disservice to the issue itself if that's the issue that concerns some," replies @VP.
"If we don't stand up for our democracy what do we have left worth fighting for?" replies @VP to @tamarakeithNPR about voting rights legislation. "Let's be who we say we are."
In this type of limited news conference, an official for the @VP would have decided in advance who to call on from the group of credentialed reporters (although they wouldn't know what the journalists were going to ask).
