Washington, D.C. – President Donald Trump addressed a joint session of Congress on January 30, 2018 to give his State of the Union address. After attending, Congressman Rick Crawford (AR-01) gave the follow remark:

“Tonight President Trump outlined his first year in office, marked by reasonable deregulation and a historic tax reform package that has unleashed the economy across America, and Arkansas is no exception. But equally as important as what our government has achieved this past year is what we hope to achieve together in the coming months. I look forward to working with the President on treatment for opioid addiction, updated infrastructure, and better technical education – all of which directly impact rural America and Arkansas’ 1st,” Crawford said.
