 Pelosi Sends Impeachment Articles to Senate
The so-called “urgent” articles of impeachment (which sat in the House for a month) are on their way to the Senate. I am looking forward to watching this hoax end in the Senate so that Congress can FINALLY get back to the work of the American people.

Trump Signs Historic "Phase One" of New China Trade Deal
On Wednesday, President Trump signed “Phase One” of the new trade agreement with China – a historic occasion! The days of China taking advantage of the U.S. are finally coming to an end. This deal holds bad actors accountable and levels the playing field for American families, workers, and innovators.

Sympathizing with Iranian Protesters
 I support and sympathize with the thousands of Iranians protesting against their oppressive, radical Islamic regime – which sponsors terrorism world-wide – and pray for their swift liberation.

Pelosi Avoids Supporting Iranian Protesters
Simple question: Do you support these protesters? I'm not sure why this was such a difficult question for Speaker Pelosi to answer. You'd think it would be an obvious "yes."

 First Space Force Chief is Sworn In
 It’s official: the U.S. Space Force now has its first-ever Chief of Space Operations – General John “Jay” Raymond – an obvious choice! This is a great step as the Trump Administration's vision for America’s Space Force becomes even more of a reality.

Congratulating the LSU Tigers
Let’s give a congratulations as big as Texas to our next-door neighbor, the LSU Tigers, for their tremendous victory over Clemson to win the National Championship. Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow led his team in a historic season under Coach Ed Orgeron. Both of these men overcame adversity and setbacks earlier in their careers to reach the pinnacle of achievement.

The countdown has officially begun for LSU's rematch with our Aggies and Longhorns next season, but for now we'll say: Geaux Tigers!
