President Donald J. Trump delivered his first State of the Union address this evening. Congressman Rick W. Allen (GA-12) released the following statement in response:

“We should all be proud to be Americans after the successes of President Trump’s first year in office. Neil Gorsuch was confirmed as the newest Supreme Court Justice, we have the lowest jobless claims in decades, our economy is growing at historic levels – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. I am proud to have done my part to support the President’s agenda over the past year.”

“Tonight, President Trump reaffirmed his commitment to put Americans first – no matter their political party. Looking to the future, our government must unify to do what is best for the American people by building a safer and stronger nation. Congress still has a lot of important work to do, like providing for our military, investing in our nation’s infrastructure, and securing our borders. We must build on last year’s successes of tax reform and cutting burdensome red tape - continuing to provide all Americans the dignity of work by promoting policies that create new jobs, support hardworking families, and expand opportunities for business owners across the nation.”

“As we read in the book of Matthew, ‘a house divided against itself cannot stand.’ It was an honor to hear President Trump lay out his vision for American prosperity, and now Congress must come together to realize these goals.”
