Rep. Black Praises President Trump’s State of the Union Address

January 30, 2018
Press Release
A Safe, Strong, Proud America

Washington, D.C. Congressman Diane Black (R-TN-06) released the following statement after President Trump’s State of the Union address:

“Over the last year, President Trump has shown that he will put America first and I am proud to stand with him. Tonight’s State of the Union address was no different – the President’s speech was optimistic, bold and confident. It was a message to the world that we are proud to be American.

We have seen tremendous legislative victories in Congress with President Trump leading the way. We’ve seen the positive effects of tax reform, as businesses have cited our bill as the reason they’re giving bonuses and investing more in their employees. Our economy and markets are booming under the President’s leadership. We've also seen hundreds of crippling regulations rolled back on industries suffering under unnecessary bureaucratic overreach.

And we’ve seen a renewed commitment to our military, unapologetically putting our national security and citizens first.  I look forward to continuing this momentum with the President as I fight for Tennessee and the American people.”
