(WTVM) - U.S. Senator David Perdue released a statement following President Trump’s first joint address to Congress.

Trump addressed the Congress Tuesday night and Sen. Perdue stated the following:

President Trump has hit the ground running and is keeping his promises to the American people. He has put the needs of Americans first and the results he’s already achieved have brought forward a renewed spirit of optimism in our country. It’s been encouraging to see President Trump start to get our government moving at more of a business-pace, rather than the usual Washington pace.

Look at the results. The economy today is on the precipice of a turnaround. The bond market is pricing in potential growth, consumer confidence is showing early signs of moving up, and even corporate leaders are beginning to talk about investing again after a decade of uncertainty and low growth.  

Tonight, we heard President Trump outline his optimistic vision for America—one with more job opportunities, education choices, and economic mobility for everyone. This is what our country needs to become competitive again, and I am committed to helping him achieve these results for Georgians and the American people.
