Rep. Poliquin’s Statement on the President’s First Address to Congress
WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Poliquin (ME-02) released the following statement on President Trump’s first address to a joint session of Congress:
“As I travel our 2nd District of Maine and meet with our families, small businesses, and community leaders, I hear loud and clear about the difficulties and challenges they’ve faced as a result of years of poor policies from Washington, unfair trade deals, fewer jobs, and less economic opportunity,” said Congressman Poliquin. “Since my first day in office, I have made protecting and growing jobs in Maine my number one priority. Tonight, President Trump made it clear that growing our Nation’s economy will be his top priority.
“The President put forward an agenda that puts American workers and our Veterans first, opposes unfair trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership, gives small businesses the opportunities to grow, reins in irresponsible spending and burdensome regulations from Washington, and strengthens our national security.
“I look forward to working with the White House to get our Nation back on the right track and I will continue to do everything I can to help grow jobs in Maine, oppose unfair trade, and make sure our Veterans are given the services they were promised, have earned and deserve.”
