Congratulations to Abbeville High School’s Coach Jamie Nickles for being nominated by the Carolina Panthers for the Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year Award. I look forward to seeing you at the 2020 Pro Bowl, South Carolina is rooting for you!

Today I voted for the USMCA, see my full statement here:

I joined @paulafaris  on “Journeys of Faith” to discuss how faith has affected my life and landed me a seat in the United States Senate. On this National Religious Freedom Day, I want to share my journey of faith with all of you!

I'm so proud of our Junior Betas and had a great time speaking with them in Myrtle Beach. I look forward to their leadership across the Palmetto State.

I had a wonderful time visiting with the folks at the @florencechamber . Thank you for sharing all of the important things going on in Florence.

Stopped by Vital Aging in Kingstree today on the way back home to Charleston — loved getting to chat with everyone about what’s going on in Washington!

On this #MLKDay , we look to Dr. King in our pursuit of a more civil and fair America—an America where one’s race, gender, or zip code does not dictate their opportunity. We must put aside our differences and commit to unity over division.

I spoke at the U.S. Conference of Mayors Winter meeting today about #OpportunityZones , and I’m thrilled to see so many mayors from across the country support this effort to help those most in need!

Trump Economy: 👉🏿 Lowest overall unemployment rate in 50 yrs 👉🏿 Historically low Black, Hispanic, Asian, veteran unemployment rates 👉🏿 Opp Zones 👉🏿 7M new jobs 👉🏿 Cutting regulations Read my thoughts on why the Dems are really trying to impeach here:

The House Democrat impeachment resolution says 11 times there is “overwhelming” evidence against the President...but we’ve yet to hear it (hint: because it’s not there). @SenJohnBarrasso  and I talking on our dinner break about the charade this has become.

Uh probably because I helped write the bill for the past year, have multiple provisions included, got multiple Senators on board over the last week and have worked on tax reform my entire time in Congress. But if you'd rather just see my skin color, pls feel free.

You mean...besides growing up in a poor single parent household where we had to use the oven to heat the house? Or when we couldn't afford Christmas presents? Or when I owned 4 shirts total?

Some in our party wonder why Republicans are constantly accused of racism — it is because of our silence when things like this are said.

This is a plan we can be proud of because it speaks to the hearts of everyday, hardworking Americans! And I am proud to say that our #TaxReform  package includes my bipartisan #IIOA , which will help distressed communities all over the country. Today is a great day.

A secure border is one of the defining characteristics of any nation. We are a country with a big heart, but we are also one of laws. Democrats need to come to the table and end this shutdown instead of letting their distaste for the President drive them away from real solutions.

I’ve been called a lot of things in my life: n*****, Uncle Tom, coon — you get my drift. Now my friend @djaycameron  is under racist attack by a liberal lawyer, saying he needs to stop eating “coon flakes.” Well, if that doesn’t prove racism knows no party I don’t know what does.

I grew up in a single-parent household, w/ a mom who worked 16 hours a day I know what it feels like to live paycheck to paycheck. I know what it feels like when you’re hopeless. I can relate, and I feel your pain. I see you. We see you. #TaxReform 

Earlier this afternoon in HELP Committee I discussed censoring conservative views. Russians trying to influence our elections? Kick them off. People trying to incite violence and hate? Goodbye. But They are hardly "unsafe to the community".

If Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats truly believed that the president was a national security risk, why did they wait 28 days to send the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate? Let’s be frank and call it what it is—a political stunt that has backfired.

After being briefed by the FBI today and having the opportunity to read the report myself, I am now even more confident in Judge #Kavanaugh ’s nomination and fitness for the court. (1/2)
