Beatty Statement on Trump's First State of the Union Address

WASHINGTON, D.C.--On January 30, 2018, in response to President Donald Trump's first State of the Union Address, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) issued the following statement: 

"President Trump opened his address by talking about 'bonds of trust' and ensuring all Americans have the opportunity to live the American Dream. However, making progress in these areas requires more than words, it takes action and strong leadership. The president read through a string of issues weaved through his scripted speech but failed to even acknowledge the many hurtful, divisive, bigoted and offensive statements he has hurled at countless Americans of all backgrounds. So, while I hope that the White House and Republicans will work with Democrats to 'put politics aside' to move our country forward, build a strong infrastructure, help our fellow Americans struggling with addiction, and provide hardworking families the opportunity to move from poverty to prosperity, I believe their actions in the months ahead will provide more insight than tonight's speech ever will."
