Getting Results  

“I see this man moving in so many directions. He’s moving at a business-pace, not a bureaucratic-pace. He’s looking to pull back the regulations that have sucked the very life out of this economy over the last eight years. He is fighting hard to bring justice back to our country. He nominated Neil Gorsuch…and we confirmed Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court.” 

Restoring Rule Of Law  

“This President is enforcing federal law. He will stop the insanity called sanctuary cities. This is a President who will remove felons who are in this country illegally. This is a President that doesn’t veto things that will reverse onerous rules that violate our rights as Americans. I actually put a bill in recently that scrapped an Obama-era rule that threatened due process and Second Amendment rights, and you know what, he has already signed that into law.”

Putting Security First

“Isn’t it refreshing that we now have a President who will stand up for our Second Amendment Rights? Isn’t it refreshing we have a President who will stand up and enforce laws? Isn’t it refreshing we have a President who will stand up to those around the world who would do us harm?... Prior disregard for our Constitution will no longer be permitted.”

Supporting Americans In Uniform  

We need to support law enforcement officers and give them our full, undivided support. We need to fund our women and men in the military and stop this nonsense of not building an Army, a Navy, and an Air Force. Do you know we have the smallest Army since World War II, the smallest Navy since World War I, and the oldest—and smallest—Air Force, ever. We will fix this.”

Enacting Term Limits

“It’s finally time to bring term limits to the United States Congress! Let’s be clear though. This is bigger than me. It’s bigger than you. It’s really bigger than Donald Trump. This is about the freedom of our children and our children’s children.”

Seizing Moment Of Opportunity

“We simply have to work together to seize this moment of opportunity, and change the direction of our country. God Bless you, God Bless Georgia, and God Bless the United States of America.”
