U.S. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following statement after President Trump’s State of the Union Address.

“At tonight’s State of the Union address, the President talked about some big Nebraska priorities: promoting trade, securing the border, and defending life. The USMCA is great news for Nebraska’s farmers and ranchers and it’s an achievement worth celebrating tonight. Border security is national security: We’ve got to combat the drug cartels that are terrorizing our southern border – this is something Congress ought to get serious about. Last, but certainly not least, we’ve got to promote a culture of life with a compassionate agenda that’s pro-baby, pro-woman, and pro-science.”
