Speaker Pelosi keeps saying she wants to pass the USMCA. But actions speak louder than words, and House Democrats have been slow-walking it for months. Madam Speaker, the ball is in your court. Let’s get it done. The American people need this landmark trade deal.

Critical legislation is currently frozen in place. Casualties of Democrats’ apparent inability to make headway on anything besides fighting with the White House. We need action: ▶️ National Defense ▶️ Funding the Gov't. ▶️ USMCA

I was encouraged by a productive conversation with @marcorubio  yesterday on legislation to further help the people of Hong Kong. The Senate needs to stand with Hong Kong and I hope we can take action soon.

Last Tuesday was Election Day in dozens of states & localities, including my home state of Kentucky. One important story didn’t get much attention: Neither last week’s elections nor the 2018 midterms were marred by the same level of foreign interference that we saw in 2016. (1/3)

That’s because our defenses are stronger. We’ve made big strides on election security since 2016 thanks to coordinated work by Congress, the administration, and election officials around the country. New tools, new resources, and new strategies are making a difference. (2/2)

But we know that Russia & our other adversaries are not going to stop. This crucial work must continue. I urge Senate Dems to stop blocking a bipartisan appropriations process so that we can secure hundreds of millions more for those on the front lines of election security. (3/3)

My motto is “leave no vacancy behind”. As of this week: ✔️ 2 Supreme Court Justices ✔️ 46 Circuit Court Judges ✔️ 112 District Court JudgesFair, well-qualified men and women who understand the proper role of a judge in our constitutional order.

House Democrats’ impeachment resolution would just codify their unfair process. Here’s what it contemplates: 1. No due process now 2. Maybe some later 3. But only if they feel like it No American, the president or anyone else, should be subjected to this kind of unfairness.

When 94% of Senate Democrats could not even vote to protect babies after they’re born, we are no longer dealing with a normal, traditional Democratic Party.

Washington Democrats have been engaged in a three-year-long impeachment parade in search of a rationale. Prominent House Democrats were promising impeachment at the very beginning of this presidency. Fairness and due process are not their objectives here.
