Congressman Earl L. "Buddy" Carter (R-Ga.) released the following statement in response to President Donald J. Trump's State of the Union Address tonight:

"Tonight, President Trump delivered a message of prosperity and optimism. With President Trump at the helm, America is stronger than ever. 

Unemployment is low and millions of jobs have been created since the president was elected. Wages are increasing and many American families get to keep more of their hard-earned paychecks. These economic successes will continue with the help of the historic trade agreements recently secured by President Trump. 

We also finally have a Commander in Chief who has made it very clear that the United States of America won't be pushed around. With the recent elimination of dangerous terrorist leaders, the world now knows that if our troops or our national security are at risk, we will fight back. 

In the face of constant baseless, partisan attacks from some in Congress, I applaud the president for staying focused on delivering results for the American people. I'm proud to stand with him as we work to lower the costs of prescription drugs, build the wall and secure the border, improve health care, keep the economy booming, support our military, create jobs and improve the lives of each and every American.

The president's address tonight highlighted that the state of our union is strong. Together, we must stay focused on making sure this continues for the future of our great nation."
