Burr Statement on President Trump’s Joint Session of Congress: It’s Time to Work Together

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) made the following statement on President Trump’s first Joint Session of Congress:

“In his first few days in office, President Trump was quick to begin honoring his promises to the American people. Going forward, the President tonight outlined a blue print to improve our economy and keep our country safe. Americans were clear about their priorities in this past election and it’s time to work together on issues that are critical to the American people.

“For far too long, many have felt forgotten by our government. I am encouraged that Congress can work together with the President to pass legislation that will get our country back on track with a stronger economy for all Americans. It is clear that our citizens want to reel in government spending, create jobs, fix our healthcare system, and strengthen our borders. The President, in keeping his promises, has made significant gains in reinforcing these critical policy areas.

“I look forward to working with the President to solve the real, everyday problems that face the American people, and I ask my Senate colleagues to work with him to achieve these goals.”
