Schatz Statement On State Of The Union Address

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i) released the following statement in response to President Trump’s State of the Union address.

“I listened carefully to the president’s speech for opportunities for bipartisanship, and I was disappointed to find so few. Although there may be a chance for compromise on infrastructure and a solution for the Dreamers worked out in the Senate, much of the speech was disappointingly divisive. Nevertheless, I will continue to look for bipartisan opportunities with my Senate colleagues, and fight the administration when they undermine fundamental American values.”
