WASHINGTON, D.C. (WFXR) — Virginia Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine and Republican Congressman Ben Cline commented Tuesday, Feb. 4, on President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address.
Cline, who represents the 6th district of Virginia, praised the President and how his efforts have added jobs and growth to the state’s economy.
Cline says, “Virginia alone has seen 120,000 jobs created over the last three years, so the state of our union is strong. The state of Virginia’s economy is strong.”
Kaine spoke more toward working together across the aisle for what he feels are big issues in America and how the State of the Union is one of the ways to bring the parties together.
“…the bread-and-butter issues – healthcare, education, the role of America in the world – and I would love to hear his (President Trump’s) speech where he wasn’t name-calling people, you know, praising Republicans and taunting Democrats, but where he was trying to get people to pull together,” Kaine said.
