Foreign fentanyl analogues from China and elsewhere are incredibly poisonous drugs that kill Americans.   They're currently classified as illegal controlled substances. But some Democrats want to let that status expire.   Absurd. We should make this permanent. It's a no-brainer.

We are returning a generation of heroes to the forefront of our national memory — and the center of our nation’s capital.   Thanks to the @WW1CC  and all who have made the new National World War I Memorial possible.

China jails peaceful dissidents, saying “only patriots” should govern Hong Kong.   The real patriots are the peaceful activists they have jailed and the hundreds of thousands still carrying the torch for democracy.   The free world must have their backs.

The situation at our southern border: record arrivals of unaccompanied minors. The White House’s response: police the terminology border officials are allowed to use to describe the crisis. Not securing the border. Just woke proofreading, in a parody of left-wing governance.

A major theme of the Biden Administration has been false advertising: Last month, it was the multi-trillion-dollar “COVID relief” bill that spent only 1% on vaccines. Now it’s a multi-trillion-dollar “infrastructure” plan where roads and bridges are almost a rounding error.

The late Justice Ginsburg rejected the discredit concept of court-packing. “If anything would make the Court appear partisan, it would be that.” “Nine seems to be a good number.” Justice Breyer just reaffirmed his own opposition. And the American people agree overwhelmingly.

Senate Democrats just voted to filibuster the annual funding for the U.S. armed forces. It’s the second time they have blocked defense funding in two months. We can’t advance it. Remember when Democrats said their impeachment obsession wouldn't stop them from legislating?

Just finished a great phone call with @POTUS . He’s in good spirits and we talked business — especially how impressed Senators are with the qualifications of Judge Barrett. Full steam ahead with the fair, thorough, timely process that the nominee, the Court, & the country deserve.

Here’s how this must work in our great country: Every legal vote should be counted. Any illegally-submitted ballots must not. All sides must get to observe the process. And the courts are here to apply the laws & resolve disputes. That's how Americans' votes decide the result.

Every time the Trump administration meets Speaker Pelosi halfway on the USMCA, she tries to move the goalposts. The Speaker literally has not even updated her own talking points since Valentine’s Day. Textbook obstruction.

Every Senate Democrat just voted against hundreds of billions of dollars of COVID-19 relief. They blocked money for schools, testing, vaccines, unemployment insurance, and the Paycheck Protection Program. Their goal is clear: No help for American families before the election.
