Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry (NC-10) released the statement below following President Donald J. Trump's first State of the Union Address:

“Tonight, President Trump delivered a unifying message focused on the strength of the American people and the success of the American economy. The President laid out the accomplishments we’ve achieved with tax cuts for all Americans and the repeal of countless job-killing regulations. He outlined plans for the year ahead, detailing how we will combat the opioid crisis and focusing on how we can use savings from tax reform to invest in developing our workforce and helping communities that have been left behind. In the weeks ahead, I look forward to working with President Trump to achieve these shared goals on behalf of all Americans.”

Joining Chief Deputy Whip McHenry at tonight's State of the Union as his invited guest was Representative Tim Moore (R-Cleveland County), Speaker of the North Carolina State House. Prior to President Trump's address, Speaker Moore joined Chief Deputy Whip McHenry for a tour of the U.S. Capitol and dinner in the office of House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23).
