November 16, 2017


“Alright – what a country and what a day. Today, we are one step closer to tax relief for every American family. We are one step closer to better jobs and more opportunity for every American, and today is a big day for so many in this country, especially for those who have been struggling to get by; who haven’t been able to get ahead; who have read about the economic recovery for years but have never experienced it. Today is a great day for them.”


“Que gran día el día de hoy para todas las familias de [los] Estados Unidos. Hoy estamos un paso más cerca a mejores empleos, más oportunidades; hoy es especialmente un día muy bueno y positivo para aquellas familias que han leído sobre la recuperación económica pero que no la han sentido, que no han percibido ese crecimiento económico en sus hogares. Hoy estamos un paso más cerca a un futuro más prospero para todos en este gran país.”
