Re-establishing American Leadership: “This is a man re-engaging with the world and what we see is the world responding to him. On the Foreign Relations Committee, I traveled a lot and spoke to heads of state. The number one request they had was America needs to step up and lead again. That doesn't mean 100,000 troops on the ground in Syria, but what it does mean is we need to re-engage and coalesce against terrorism and to get our economies going again.”

Rescuing Americans From Obamacare: “The solution is complicated, but it's not impossible. We have got to get behind President Trump and follow his leadership to get this done. This is a crisis. Obamacare is collapsing under its own weight. There are about 1,100 counties across the country down to one provider in the individual market. We have seen premium increases of 140 percent.”

Governing Again: “In 2017 and 2018, Republicans have to learn to govern again. This two-year period is a probation period, not a mandate. The first thing we had to do was get Judge Gorsuch confirmed and approved and we did that. Second is regulation. We passed 14 bills to move on regulation and the President is acting on that.”

Doing The Heavy Lifting: “Now comes the heavy lifting. We have to give our version for the future of health care in the country a solid vote in the Senate and get it passed. Lastly, we have to pass this tax package that President Trump has already outlined in his one-page proposal.”
