Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Reacts to President Trump’s ‘State of the Union’ Address


Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement tonight, reacting to President Trump’s first State of the Union address.

“Tonight, President Trump reminded the American people of the record-setting successes we’ve seen during his first year in office and laid out important priorities that will help us to continue build a country that is safe, strong and proud. Good things happen when leaders actually keep their promises to the voters. The president’s tax cuts and extensive deregulation efforts have unleashed prosperity by reducing the burden of government in our lives after eight years of big government and bigger spending under former President Obama. This new agenda driven by President Trump has helped create an economic environment that has led to millions of jobs, larger paychecks for workers, driven markets to record highs and expanded opportunities for all Americans. His promise to put American citizens first has led to fairer trade policies that stop other countries from taking advantage of us.

“We thank President Trump for seeking to unite the country around a positive agenda that is benefiting all Americans. Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund and our network of over 3 million supporters hope Congress will focus on working with the White House and the administration on implementing sound policies that will continue to build on the successes of the past year and resonates with the values we share.”
