January 30, 2018
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge today issued the following statement after attending President Donald J. Trump’s State of the Union address.
“It was an honor to attend President Trump’s first State of the Union address to directly hear about the successes of his historic first year in office and his bold vision for the future. From day one, the President has made clear that he understands the challenges facing our country and is working to improve the lives of all Americans. By prioritizing the passage of dramatic tax cuts and an unparalleled elimination of overreaching federal regulations, the Trump Administration has jumpstarted the economy and provided relief for hard-working families across Arkansas. I look forward to continuing to work with the President and his administration to tackle the country’s most pressing issues, including the escalating battle against the opioid epidemic and rooting out violent crime, in order to improve the lives of all Arkansans.”
