WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Kay Granger (R-TX), the Republican Leader of the House Appropriations Committee, released the following statement today following President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address.

“President Trump’s optimistic vision for our country puts hardworking Americans first, and I was pleased to hear him outline his continued commitment to policies that promote a strong economy, secure our nation’s border, and modernize our great military to protect the American way of life. New and improved trade agreements like the USMCA, which I was proud to support, and the President’s efforts to lower the cost of healthcare for more Americans help ensure that the American dream is more accessible than ever before. I am proud to support the President as he continues working towards even greater American economic prosperity and military strength. I urge my colleagues in Congress to make the American people a priority again and put an end to the sham impeachment trial that has distracted our nation for far too long.”
