U.S. Congressman Michael Guest: 

In his comments, Congressman Guest echoed President Trump’s call for bipartisanship. “In his address to our nation, President Trump called for all Americans to put aside our differences and to come together by focusing on those interests we have in common,” Guest said. “President Trump challenged Congress to lead this effort by adopting a spirit of compromise and to work together to create a better future for our children and grandchildren.”

Congressman Guest also reaffirmed his support for border security. “I am grateful that our President continues to emphasize protecting American communities from these dangerous drugs,” Guest said. “The war on drugs requires us to secure our Southwest border, and I am proud to support the President on these issues as a member of the Committee on Homeland Security in the House of Representatives and the Committee’s Border Security subcommittee.”

In closing, Congressman Guest reiterated the President’s message for unity. “I hope President Trump’s address tonight reminded all Americans that our shared interests are stronger than our perceived differences and that we must always choose greatness,” Guest said.
