Terrorists are Losing, Peace is Breaking Out

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – It’s hard to believe that just five years ago, Americans watched in horror as ISIS gained power and territory in the Middle East and radical Islamist terrorists killed 14 Americans on U.S. soil in San Bernardino, California.
 
Today, the ISIS caliphate is destroyed. Terrorist leaders Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Qasem Soleimani are dead. And instead of sending American troops to fight in endless wars or giving cash to terrorist sponsors in Iran, the United States is securing peace deals with our real allies across the Middle East, including Israel.

President Donald Trump’s Remarks in Meeting with Republican Members of Congress

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP: Hi, everybody. Please, sit down. Get things done. Nobody gets it done like we do.

Now, I don’t know — are we letting the media in? Is the media here? I guess we have a limited media because of distancing. And some people think I did that on purpose. But we’ve been getting along with them reasonably well lately.

I just want to thank you all for coming back because you came back. This is a Republican group, largely, if not in all cases. You know, they look pretty Republican. I’m not sure about Devin. Let’s just — you’re a Republican, aren’t you? (Laughter.) No, this is a very, very Republican group. And we appreciate you coming back. Hi, Debbie.

Representative Mark Green Calls on Congress to Incentivize American Companies to Return from China to United States

 

U.S. House of RepresentativesWashington, D.C. – Today, Monday, April 13th, 2020, Representative Mark Green sent a letter to Congressional leadership urging them to include incentives for American companies to move back from China in any upcoming legislation Congress may consider to continue fighting COVID-19 Coronavirus.

Representative Green said, “One of the big disincentives to American companies moving back to our soil is the cost. For many, it is too expensive and too risky to undertake an international move at a time of global economic uncertainty.

Senator Chuck Grassley say Skeptics are eating Crow on Donald Trump Trade Deals

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “Skeptics of President Donald Trump’s bold way of negotiating trade ate a bit of crow this month. That includes this Iowa senator,” Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) writes in the Des Moines Register.
 
“I’m not a big fan of tariffs. So, when the president imposed tariffs as leverage in world trade talks, I was skeptical. And yet, here we are starting the fourth year of his presidency and President Trump has succeeded in securing two major trade agreements that are good for America and good for Iowa.”

Lamar Alexander says USMCA is Very Good News for Tennessee Workers, Especially Autoworkers

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) released the following statement after he voted for and the Senate passed, by a bipartisan vote of 89-10, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement Act (USMCA):

“Today, the United States Senate approved the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement. This is very good news for Tennessee workers, especially autoworkers, in 88 of our 95 counties,” stated Senator Alexander.

“It updates the North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) of 1994, which was also good for Tennessee because it meant we would have no tariffs on what we trade back and forth from Mexico and Canada,” Senator Alexander said.

Lamar Alexander says Senate Labor Committee Approves Trade Agreement to Create Even More Good-Paying Jobs

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – On Wednesday, January 15th, 2020 Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) released the following statement after the Senate labor committee voted to approve the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement Act (USMCA), which includes several labor provisions:

“Over 40 years ago, Tennessee hardly had any auto jobs. When the North American Free Trade Agreement – NAFTA – was adopted in 1994, Tennessee had about 51,000 auto jobs. Today there are nearly three times as many. More than 140,000 Tennesseans – one third of our state’s manufacturing jobs – work in the automotive industry at plants and suppliers in 88 of our 95 counties,” stated Senator Alexander.

Marsha Blackburn Report: Holding Turkey Accountable For Its Atrocities

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Protecting our Kurdish partners is a priority. Turkey must be held accountable for its destabilization of northern Syria, and ISIS must not be allowed to resurge. 

While I am encouraged that the lines of communication are open, this five-day pause in hostilities does not make up for the lives lost, families displaced, and homes destroyed by the Turkish incursion. Not only are we abandoning our Kurdish partners, but Putin is exploiting our withdrawal. We must not cede power to Moscow. 

Senator Marsha Blackburn.
