President Trump Vindicated: “My take on the testimony yesterday, as I objectively look at it, I think the President was totally vindicated. Comey himself said three times the President wasn't under investigation and the President had not asked him and did not ask him to stop the Russia investigation. I think this totally vindicates the President and shows how the national and Washington media hyped this into something that it wasn't.”

Fixing The Immediate Crises: “We've been focusing on healthcare day-to-day. That's the immediate crisis. We're trying to get that bill done in the Senate. Remember, we have about 47 days left until the end of this fiscal year. We have a debt ceiling limit coming up on us shortly. More importantly we have this tax package that hopefully will give some relief and make us more competitive with the rest of the world.”

Pressure On Congress: “President Trump is doing what he said he was going to do, and that is roll back regulations, adjust our tax situation, and make us more competitive with the rest of the world. People are responding to that...In Congress, what that does is put pressure on us and should bring a sense of urgency to get these things done now.”

Staying In Washington To Work: “I'm one of the few in the Senate saying we should not leave Washington and go back to our home states in August during that five-week state work period. We should stay in Washington and get this tax package done. That's what we would do in the business world.”
