Washington, D.C. ­– House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on President Trump’s State of the Union Address:

“The future in America is looking up. In President Trump’s first year we’ve achieved lower unemployment, more take home pay for the American people, and a stronger economy. ISIS has been beaten back, the stock market is up, and investment is streaming back into America. This is what America’s comeback looks like.

“President Trump is a doer, and this year we are redoubling our focus on solving problems. We will continue to bring more jobs and higher wages to America, we will work to modernize our outdated infrastructure, we will fight to create an immigration system that actually puts the needs of American citizens and our economy first, and we will continue to keep America safe. The good news is these are not partisan goals—they are goals shared by a large majority of Americans in both parties.

“With America’s comeback reaching every corner of the country, Democrats should recognize that working together, not resistance, is the best way to move our country forward. And with every success, the American people are safer, stronger, and can be even more proud of living in the greatest country on earth.”
