WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) released the following statement in response to President Trump’s second State of the Union address:

“In his second State of the Union, President Trump made a call for greatness, laying out a vision for our country that we can accomplish if we come together to address the issues that matter most to Americans,” said Rep. Newhouse.

“Enhanced border security, implementing immigration reform, fostering economic prosperity, negotiating a level playing field for international trade, improving our infrastructure, and addressing skyrocketing prescription drug costs are top concerns for our nation. In the face of recent late-term abortion extremism, President Trump made a powerful appeal to the nation to protect unborn children as well as newborn infants. Our society must live up to our values by defending the defenseless. In a divided government, we must be able to come together on solutions to the problems our country faces and end politically-motivated obstruction. When we work together, we can accomplish major victories - such as last year’s bipartisan criminal justice reform and historic investments in ending the opioid epidemic. I look forward to working with President Trump and my colleagues from both sides of the aisle to continue to make progress on behalf of Central Washington.”
