WASHINGTON – Congressman Robert Pittenger (NC-09), who greeted President Donald Trump as he entered the House Chamber tonight, had this reaction to the State of the Union:
“Tonight, President Trump made clear to the American people that they can once again be optimistic about the future. In just one short year, President Trump, working together with Republicans in Congress, delivered on his promise to Make America Great Again. Our economy is booming and our enemies are on the run. From Tax Cuts to regulatory reform, restoring law and order, repealing Obamacare’s individual mandate, and reasserting America’s global leadership, 2017 was an historic year, a turning point for America.
“In the coming months, I look forward to working with President Trump and my colleagues in Congress to secure our borders, pass landmark foreign investment reform, rebuild America’s infrastructure, and redouble our efforts to defeat those who wish us harm.”
