WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) tonight issued the following statement regarding President Trump’s State of the Union Address to the nation:
“President Trump set out an optimistic message that challenges us to embrace unity and work together to keep our economy strong and solve the problems facing our country.
“I like this message, which will help our country be great. The Congress can do more working together than it can by focusing on differences.
“I’m ready to get to work with the President and my colleagues to protect Mississippi’s interests with fairer trade deals, invest in infrastructure improvements, which are long overdue and necessary, strengthen our national security, which includes securing our borders, and lower the cost of healthcare and prescription drugs.
“I’m also very pleased the President and First Lady asked Roy James of Vicksburg to be their guest tonight to highlight how pro-growth policies like Opportunity Zones can benefit Mississippi and the country.”
