Roe to East Tennesseans: I Will Proudly Stand with the President to Fight For You

Today, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-Tenn.) released the following statement after attending President Trump’s speech to the American Farm Bureau National Conference:

“It was an honor to join President Trump aboard Air Force One today, and to attend his speech in Nashville as he discussed increasing prosperity in rural America. I agree wholeheartedly with the president that we must take steps to address issues such as the opioid crisis and other public health challenges; the need for high-speed connectivity and the steps we can take to create jobs and build a skilled workforce in Tennessee and across rural America. I’m proud of the work we’ve already done to eliminate burdensome and unnecessary regulations from the Obama administration, provide relief from Obamacare, fight opioid abuse in our communities and reform our tax code to put more money in the pockets of hardworking Americans. I was very inspired by President Trump’s remarks, and I thank our president for keeping his promise to prioritize the communities around the country who were forgotten or ignored by previous administrations. You are no longer forgotten, and I will proudly stand with the president to fight for you as long as I have the privilege of serving in Congress.”

NOTE: Congressman Roe flew to Tennessee with the president and other members of the Tennessee delegation aboard Air Force One.
