"Tonight, President Trump shared with the nation an inspiring vision of a prosperous America," said Chairwoman McDaniel. "His first two years in office delivered historic results to the American people, including nearly 5 million new jobs, a once-in-a-generation tax cut, and an overhaul of the criminal justice system. As President Trump continues to honor his promises and fights to keep America safe, Congress must join him in choosing greatness for our country. In the years ahead, Democrats and Republicans should unite behind President Trump’s vision to lift up all Americans and create a stronger America."
Statement from House Republican Leader McCarthy on Trump's address:
“The President’s message to our country tonight was clear: America first leadership is returning American greatness. “As President Trump looked forward, he also reflected on the last two years and the foundation from which we have been able to achieve so much. We cut taxes for hard-working Americans. We passed the most comprehensive response to combat the opioid crisis. We slashed regulations. And we reinvested in our military to make our country stronger.“The President also spoke about the ongoing fight to stop human trafficking while proactively supporting the survivors of these despicable traumas. “This scourge is part of the central challenge facing our nation: securing the southern border. The President reaffirmed his determination to prevent crime and drugs from flowing across the border and threatening the stability and security of our communities. The challenge is also a humanitarian crisis, affecting not only those who seek to enter the United States but also the American families devastated by destructive drugs and crime. We must solve this crisis. “President Trump is moving our country forward and I remain committed to working with him and my colleagues in Congress to secure our borders and ensure continued prosperity through higher wages and stronger economic opportunity.”
#FakeFeminism is right.
Our @POTUS celebrates DHS Agent (a legal immigrant) who helped to rescue 300+ women/girls from sex trafficking and put 1,500+ sadistic traffickers behind bars. Dems in white dresses confer w/ each other if they should stand. Most didn't. So much for #MeToo. #SOTU #FakeFeminism— Ryan Bomberger (@ryanbomberger) February 6, 2019
