Washington, D.C. – Speaking at his weekly press conference, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) discussed the split screen image America saw once again this week: while Republicans are hard at work building our country up, Democrats are trying to tear President Trump down.

Highlights are below, or watch online here.

“Once again, a great contrast here in the nation’s capital this week. 

“The President and the Republicans focused on making this country stronger. And the Democrats [are] pretty infatuated just trying to appease their Socialist base… 

“We watched the President yesterday sign the United States-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement – this is a massive win for America…

“The one thing I have found with these Democrats – [think about] everything that is not getting done. 

“Take for example what happened just this week. The Senate had passed a bill dealing with Fentanyl – making sure our streets would still be safe. The [House] Judiciary Committee hadn’t done anything on it. Republicans had to shame them…until finally they moved something late last night.

“How many other things are not getting done because all of the focus is just on impeachment?”
