Weber Statement On 2019 State of the Union
Washington D.C. – On Tuesday, February 5, 2019, President Donald Trump addressed the nation in his second State of the Union address. Congressman Randy Weber (R – Friendswood) released the following statement:
“For two years, the President has kept his promises and led our nation from a position of strength. His bold actions led to a roaring economy, a stronger military, greater prosperity, and stronger protections for the basic rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. During tonight’s State of the Union, he outlined his vision for ways to continue our American successes.
“We must face the facts: Our nation needs a stronger, safer, better legal immigration system. Included in that is better border security and the closing of legal loopholes. Additionally, infrastructure continues to be a priority in Washington. Last year, we accomplished air travel, disaster recovery, and water infrastructure advances. This year, we will continue focusing on ways to improve our roads, bridges, railways, and more.
“President Trump’s comments on anti-Semitism and Socialism were spot on, and I commend his calling the Iranian regime what it is: A state sponsor of terrorism.
“Tonight was filled with optimism and hope; we were reminded to choose greatness. I hope we were all listening. I applaud the President for the good he has accomplished thus far, and I am hopeful my colleagues and I will continue working together to keep our promise to our constituents.”
