Washington, D.C. – Following President Trump’s State of the Union address, Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) released the following statement:

“Much like the President, I too am optimistic about the future of our country. But we have a lot of work to do. I look forward to working alongside my colleagues in Congress to achieve continued economic growth and prosperity, new opportunities for all Americans, and the long-term security of our great nation.

“Today, we forge a new path forward. Together - and only together - can we protect American workers while unleashing our nation's economic potential. We can rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, and lower our healthcare and prescription drug costs, while protecting this nation we all love. These achievements are wholly within our grasp. I look forward to building on the work of the previous Congress and delivering on our promises to the American people.

“Despite our differences, we can work together to accomplish the shared goals that will bring prosperity and success to all Americans. There truly is no greater country than the United States of America."
