Yesterday evening, Republican leaders, volunteers, activists, supporters and students gathered throughout West Virginia for half a dozen State of the Union Watch parties as President Trump laid out his vision for America's future; a unified and prosperous America.
West Virginia republicans hosted and co-hosted parties with elected officials, College Republicans and local county Republican Committees throughout the state.
Statement from WVGOP Chairwoman Melody Potter on tonight's State of the Union address:
"Tonight, America is safer, stronger, and more prosperous than we've been in decades. Unemployment is at a 17-year low, America is returning to a foreign policy of peace through strength, and President Trump is committed to making us a trade and energy power in a way that this nation has never seen before.
While this economy grows, there is much that remains left to do. Our infrastructure's current status holds us back from economic growth and productivity. We applaud President Trump for his efforts to rebuild our nation's infrastructure that has been neglected for far too long.
Finally, bringing our nation together means shared goals and values. President Trump pledges to build the Wall and fix our unsafe immigration system. The President's plan includes $25 billion to build the border wall and eliminate chain migration and the broken visa lottery system.
President Trump's agenda brings hope and prosperity to all American families. Last night, we saw why Americans elected Donald Trump to lead them, and his vision to make America great again!"
"The President's State of the Union address set the tone for what is to come for the United States, a prosperous and united future. Manchin chose to support Schumer, only standing in support of the President when necessary while sitting in place while his boss, Schumer, hawkishly watched his every move. Manchin says he's all about common sense but his actions and support for the Schumer-Pelosi team show that he's doing nothing more than playing political games to stay in Washington." - RNC Spokesperson Brett Tubbs
