Where is Vice President Mike Pence?

Where is Vice President Mike Pence? That's what some are wondering as the 2nd most powerful person in the country has largely kept to himself in recent weeks.

Other than a luncheon with Turkish President Erdogan on Tuesday and the occasional speech, that's been about it, and it's really no surprise.
