Press Release

Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL) issued the following statement in response to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address.

Congressman Byrne said: “The ‘state of our Union’ is strong. From a booming economy to greater respect around the globe, President Trump, his administration, and Congress have been able to turn our country around in a very short period of time. The good news is that things are just getting started.

“Thanks to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, hardworking Americans will see more money in their pockets and businesses will continue to grow. President Trump’s plan for boosting our nation’s infrastructure will also help spur economic growth and improve the quality of life for countless Americans. Rebuilding our military, standing up to rogue actors, and securing our border will help keep the American people safe and secure.

“Importantly, I also appreciated the President’s call for greater bipartisanship and cooperation. It is my sincere hope that Democrats will come to the table with us to make the United States of America even stronger.”

Congressman Byrne’s guest for tonight’s State of the Union speech was Pete Riehm, a former Navy Surface Warfare Officer and leader in the Mobile veterans community.
