JOHNSON STATEMENT ON STATE OF THE UNION
WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Mike Johnson (LA-04) released the following statement following President Donald Trump’s second State of the Union Address:
“The president's speech was a welcome call to greatness and to national unity. Our politics have become far too divisive and counterproductive. The American people deserve better, and since coming to Congress, I have worked tirelessly to restore productive dialogue so we can solve problems and move our country forward. Tonight, the president echoed those sentiments and outlined a bright future for all Americans.
“We have an opportunity in this Congress to put forth legislation that addresses the dire crisis at our southern border, promotes continued economic prosperity, restores the sanctity of human life, prioritizes our military and national security, and puts the American people first. By doing so, we will remain, as the president said, a land of liberty and independence – not of coercion and big government control. I stand with President Trump in his efforts to bridge the divide we now face, and I hope all our colleagues will join us in championing these items in Congress.”
