WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) appeared on CNN’s New Day Wednesdaymorning to react to President Trump’s address to a joint session of Congress. Excerpts of Sen. Johnson’s appearance are below, and the full interview can be found here.
“I think it’s a very aspirational speech and it was certainly a very strong attempt and a very heartfelt attempt to start unifying the country. So I am optimistic. America faces enormous challenges, but we’re a great country, we have wonderful people, there are things that unify us.”
“We all want a safe, prosperous, secure America. I think what President Trump did, he tried to point to areas of agreement and reach out a hand. Hopefully the Democrats will grasp that hand and work with us to start solving these enormous challenges.”
