Leading Again: “President Trump is reengaging with the rest of the world. He’s doing two things: One, he's telling our allies that we're going to be there for them. But, more importantly, he's telling other people – who are doing nefarious things – what’s important to America.”

Leveling The Playing Field: “I’ve worked in Asia and Europe. I’ve dealt with these archaic trade rules all of my career. Job one right now is getting our economy going again, and getting on a level playing field with the rest of the world is one of the best ways to do it.”

Fixing Health Care: “At this point, given the terrible nature of the structure of Obamacare and given that we failed several weeks ago in repealing Obamacare, it's very difficult to get a perfect solution. I'm afraid that this bill is the only thing standing between us and a single payer system, and that's a real concern.”

Securing America: “The wall has got to be there. We’re going to find a way. This is a precept that got President Trump elected, and we're not going to stop fighting for that. It's a national security issue.”

RAISE Act Proven To Work: “The RAISE Act moves us to an immigration system based on merit, just like Canada and Australia. They’ve had this for decades and they’re attracting the best and brightest of the world.”
