31 more Texas counties have been added to the major disaster declaration. This will help speed the recovery in regions across the state.

Today I was in Corpus Christi to announce a Statewide ‘Save Our Seniors’ program to vaccinate homebound seniors across Texas. The National Guard will support our mission to help vaccinate seniors & those who are most at risk of COVID. @TexasGuard ⁩

GEUS: Customers won't see energy cost spikes. I'm seeing a lot of headlines like this. This is the right move by local utilities and power providers.

Today Texas surpassed 5 million vaccines administered. Those numbers will increase rapidly with the 1.5 million vaccines received this week + the weekly increases in vaccines sent from Washington. Also a new vaccine will be approved effective next week. Always voluntary.

Texas should get more than 200,000 initial doses of newly approved Johnson & Johnson vaccine. It requires just one shot. That is in addition to almost 1.5 million vaccine doses from Pfizer and Moderna this week. Always voluntary. via @KHOU 

Large-scale smuggling of people across the border is increasing. I've ordered the Dept. of Public Safety to deploy officers, and use every legal tool possible, to crack down on these smuggling operations. @TxDPS  #txlege  via @mySA 

Trump dashes Democrat hopes that the Republican Party will divide. "We're not starting new parties. "We have the Republican Party. It's going to unite and be stronger than ever before."


Throwing Texans in jail whose biz's shut down through no fault of their own is wrong. I am eliminating jail for violating an order, retroactive to April 2, superseding local orders. Criminals shouldn’t be released to prevent COVID-19 just to put business owners in their place.

Today I signed the @ChickfilA ⁩ law in Texas. And, had a great lunch. No business should be discriminated against simply because its owners donate to a church, the Salvation Army, or other religious organization. Texas protects religious liberty.

Texas swiftly processed more than 11 million votes & quickly announced winners across 2 time zones. To ensure transparency we allow poll watchers from each party to participate in the voting & tally processes. What is happening in some states undermines trust in elections.

FYI the matter of 7 year old James Younger is being looked into by the Texas Attorney General’s Office and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. #JamesYounger 

A candid moment with @realDonaldTrump ⁩ as he departs the @WEF  Conference in Davos.

This shutdown order by Austin isn't allowed. Period. My executive order stops cities like Austin from arbitrarily shutting down businesses. The city has a responsibility to enforce existing orders, not make new ones.
