Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman John Joyce (PA-13) released the following statement after President Trump gave his State of the Union address this evening.

“Tonight, President Trump offered an encouraging and optimistic path forward for the American people. From securing our southern border and rebuilding the military to strengthening the U.S. economy and making quality health care more affordable for American patients, our nation is moving in the right direction.

“When American families succeed, our nation succeeds. Thanks to the President’s pro-growth agenda, 162,000 jobs have been created in Pennsylvania – including critical manufacturing jobs - and our unemployment rate has reached historic lows. As we heard tonight, the President continues to deliver on his promises to PA-13 and Americans across the country – the ‘forgotten’ Americans are forgotten no more.

“In the midst of a divisive political climate, tonight’s State of the Union address reminds us that our unity as Americans is stronger than any political disagreement. It is important that we continue to move forward together.”
