“In his 2016 victory speech, Donald Trump talked about ‘the forgotten men and women of our country,’ declaring that they ‘will be forgotten no longer.’ Today, after months of impeachment proceedings, accusations of wrongdoing and a media that has reported overwhelmingly negative stories about him for three years, his polling numbers are at their highest ever,” Heritage Foundation President Kay Coles James writes.

Americans Have Failed People With Mental Illness. Trump’s New Budget Will Change That.
-The Washington Post
“President Trump is exceptionally focused on fighting for Americans who can’t fight for themselves and confronting problems other administrations, Democratic and Republican, have ignored. This is particularly true for Americans who suffer from addiction and serious mental disorders,” White House Domestic Policy Council Director Joe Grogan writes. Nearly 50 million Americans experienced mental illness in 2018. The President’s new budget proposes the boldest reforms in decades to help them.

|Last night’s State of the Union address was unforgettable, as President Trump told the Great American Comeback Story that’s unfolding across our country. |
“Jobs are booming, incomes are soaring, poverty is plummeting, crime is falling, confidence is surging, and our country is thriving and highly respected again,” the President said. “America’s enemies are on the run, America’s fortunes are on the rise, and America’s future is blazing bright.”
On the issues that matter most to working families, from fixing our broken trade deals to rebuilding our great military, President Trump has kept his promises.
Some of the best examples of those results came from the special guests who joined the President and First Lady last night. Here are just a few of their stories:
Charles McGee, 100 years old and one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen, served our country in three wars: World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. “General McGee, our Nation salutes you,” the President said.
Amy Williams is a military mother who works full-time while raising two young children. She still finds time to devote countless hours to helping other military families. Last night, President Trump had a surprise: “I am thrilled to inform you that your husband is back from deployment. He is here with us tonight.”
Tony Rankins is an Army veteran—and a prime example of how the President’s economic policies have life-changing results. Take Opportunity Zones, part of the 2017 tax cuts law: Tony climbed back from homelessness and found a job with a construction company that invests in these distressed communities. “He is now a top tradesman, drug-free, reunited with his family,” President Trump said.
Carl and Marsha Mueller. Last year, U.S. Special Forces took out the world’s top terrorist, ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The Muellers tragically lost their daughter Kayla at the hands of this vicious killer. In her honor, the U.S. mission was named Task Force 8-14, a reference to Kayla’s August 14th birthday. In the President’s words: “America’s warriors never forgot Kayla—and neither will we.”
