WASHINGTON, D.C. – Following President Donald J. Trump’s Address to a Joint Session of Congress Tuesday evening, U.S. Representative John Rose (TN-6) praised the strong state of our union.

“President Trump detailed an optimistic and inspiring vision for our country,” Rep. Rose said. “Under the Trump Administration, the entire world knows that the United States is strong once again.”

“I am happy to report that President Trump has continued to deliver on his promises,” Rep. Rose continued. “In Tennessee, our economy is thriving, and our unemployment rate is at a record low of 3.2%. We have seen 152,000 new jobs in Tennessee since President Trump’s election, and our median household income is rising. This is all great news for Tennesseans. President Trump is keeping his promises to the American people and delivering results for Tennesseans.”

“I am proud to support President Trump’s visionary policies in Congress. His successful trade deal with China and the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement are commonsense, forward looking wins for the American worker. Our families are safer as our adversaries know – once again – not to threaten the United States of America. I will continue to stand with President Trump to end sanctuary cities, combat terrorism, and build the wall,” Rep. Rose concluded. “We have made incredible progress, but our best days are still ahead.”

In the House Chamber, President Trump gave his third State of the Union address Tuesday night. U.S. Representative John Rose attended the State of the Union with his wife, Chelsea Rose.
