President Donald Trump’s Style of Leadership is a Plus in This Kind of Crisis

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “I have participated in tabletop exercises involving pandemic response; indecision is both seductive and dangerous, as Japan and South Korea are finding out,” former Senator Jim Talent writes for Fox News. President Donald Trump, on the other hand, responded quickly and effectively, shutting down flights from China in January to give officials time to prepare.
 
“Trump’s style of leadership is on balance a plus in this kind of a crisis. He is neither afraid to make decisions nor overly concerned about being criticized for the decisions he makes. That is vital.”

Marsha Blackburn Report: This Week From Washington – February 23rd, 2020

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – More than 118 rural hospitals have shut their doors in the past ten years, leaving huge gaps in care for communities in need. In Tennessee alone, we’ve lost eleven rural hospitals and I’m concerned more closures may be on the horizon. 

At the National Rural Health Association’s annual conference, I discussed my bipartisan Rural Health Agenda, which will expand rural health clinics and rural health departments, attract doctors and other health care professionals to rural areas, and jumpstart the use of telemedicine.

President Donald Trump keeps his promise to fix NAFTA

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – U.S. President Donald J. Trump has fought for better trade deals for American workers since his first day in office. In addition to new agreements with Japan, South Korea, and the European Union, the President has long argued that NAFTA must be reformed.

More than a year ago, he kept that signature campaign promise when he signed a modern, rebalanced trade deal with Canada and Mexico. And today, after a year’s worth of stall tactics, House Democrats have finally acquiesced to the will of the American people and agreed to vote on the new United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA).
