Weekly Update - 6.30.24

Good afternoon, and welcome to our Weekend Update.

The eyes of America were watching Thursday night's presidential debate between President Donald J. Trump and Joe Biden. The debate clearly shows strength in leadership versus weakness in a failed leader. President Trump demonstrated in front of tens of millions of Americans across this great nation why he should and will be the 47th President of the United States. President Trump outlined a message of strength for America, an America First message, with a strategic vision for our country for the next four years. He made it clear that he will bring strength back to our national security, re-establish energy dominance, and re-implement border security. His plan is about pro-growth initiatives for our economy, and he embodies the leadership qualities to bring peace and stability to the world.

On the other hand, President Biden could not defend his failed record. His failures on national security, the economy, and on the world stage have weakened us and were on full display. The big takeaway was the obvious weakness in Biden’s faculties and cognitive abilities. This situation is much more serious than a debate. Our nation's prosperity and peace around the world is at stake. It’s concerning that Biden is acting as our president now, and for the next six and a half months. Biden cannot be re-elected for another term because of his personal decline and our nation's decline.

On Friday, I joined NewsNation to discuss the presidential debate and its impact on the critical battle over Pennsylvania. Click here or below to watch my interview. 
Joe Biden lied repeatedly during this week’s debate. He touted policy victories that never happened, exaggerated data, and intentionally attempted to mislead the American people because his record has been one of failure. Below are just a few of the egregious lies told by Biden on Thursday night:

CLAIM: Most egregious — there were no American military combat deaths during his presidency.

REALITY: 13 brave American soldiers were killed in Afghanistan during Biden’s disastrous withdrawal.

CLAIM: His administration capped the cost of insulin at $15 per shot.

REALITY: The actual cap on insulin is $35 a shot, more than double Biden’s claim.

CLAIM: His Administration implemented a $200 out-of-pocket spending cap on drug costs in Medicare Part D.

REALITY: The cap is $2,000, ten times higher than President Biden claimed.

CLAIM: Illegal border crossings are down 40% compared to Trump.

REALITY: Illegal border crossings have not just been higher, but much, much higher, under President Biden for 39 straight months than at any time under Trump.

CLAIM: Unemployment was at 15% when Biden took office.

REALITY: Unemployment was 6.3% when Biden took office.

CLAIM: President Trump wants to get rid of Social Security.

REALITY: Trump has said that he would not “under any circumstance” allow Social Security to “be even touched.”

Before the debate, I spoke about Biden’s desire to focus on frivolous issues like President Trump's politically motivated trial because he can’t defend his record of failure. While President Trump is out on the campaign trail discussing the issues that matter most to the American people, like inflation, immigration, and crime, Biden is hunkered down at Camp David, cramming for a 90-minute test. President Trump will be tough and make a strong case for how his agenda will Make America Great Again. Click here or below to watch my interview on CNN.

I joined “The Big Money Show” on Fox Business to discuss the debate, Biden's countless failures at the expense of the American people, and, most importantly, President Trump's proven record during his first term in office. President Trump has a winning plan for America. He brings strength in every category, from border security to energy independence to economic prosperity without inflation. Biden's plan moving forward is just more of the same. Click here or below to discuss.

I joined “Wake Up America” on Newsmax to discuss President Trump’s recent rally in Philadelphia and the presidential debate. Click here to watch my interview.

We have a very clear choice in this election: Do we want a strong America with strong leadership or a declining America with weak, incoherent leadership? To be a strong nation, we must have a strong president with policies that make sense and are in the best interest of ALL American citizens. We do not need a divider-in-chief; we need a Commander in Chief, which is what President Donald J. Trump will be.

Our border must be secured. Nevertheless, those Democrat members of the House and White House who disagree need to at least acknowledge the very tragic repercussions, such as the horrible murder of Jocelyn Nungaray and others at the hands of those illegally in our country, in fact, permitted, aided and abetted, to be here illegally. Leadership in elected office does require upholding decency and the law over party political posturing. It’s never too late to do or say the right thing.

The First Amendment makes clear that all Americans have the inherent right to determine what information they share and endorse. The idea that the U.S. government can censor information it disagrees with is fundamentally flawed and goes against our Constitution and values.

During a recent House Committee on Small Business hearing, it was made clear that small businesses are being harmed by government-endorsed and funded censorship. I found it appalling that some believe the government has the authority to use taxpayer dollars to restrict information it does not agree with. I will continue to work with my colleagues to expose and stop these unlawful actions. Click here or below to watch my remarks.

The Biden Administration's censorship of conservatives on social media is undeniable and un-American. A recent Small Business Committee hearing exposed their selective categorization of information and misinformation, almost always targeting conservative groups. On Thursday, the Supreme Court had the opportunity to call this what it is, a violation of the First Amendment, and I was disappointed they failed to do so. Such governmental control over social media content directly infringes upon First Amendment rights and is dangerous to the American people. I joined “American Agenda” on Newsmax to discuss.

Earlier this week, I heard firsthand from market participants how the SEC's equity market structure rules will disrupt our capital markets, likely at the expense of everyday investors. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission needs modern market data before acting, and I heard that loud and clear. Click here or below to watch.

I questioned the Export-Import Bank on its perceived bias against certain energy projects and the importance of upholding fiscal prudence and strong guardrails. Export-Import Bank of the United States is critical for countering malign international investments by Russia and China, but it must prioritize America's economic needs over Biden's political agenda.

IN NEWS YOU WON’T HEAR IN THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA: At Thursday night’s CNN debate, the American people witnessed a split screen for the ages — a strong, focused, and powerful performance from President Trump and an incoherent, humiliating, and embarrassing display of Biden's weakness and decline.

Here are some of the must-watch moments:

  • Biden took zero responsibility for the millions of illegal aliens he has ferried into the country — and even credited them as "the reason why we have the most successful economy in the world."
  • Biden blamed President Trump for his own historic inflation crisis.
  • Biden admitted he has NO PLAN for Social Security.
  • Biden lied about raising taxes on middle-class Americans.
  • Biden was unable to name a single limit he'd support on taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand until birth.
  • Biden malfunctioned in real-time (againand againand againand again).

Meanwhile, President Trump took Biden to task over Biden's border invasion, his disastrous foreign policy, his plan to raise taxes on 91% of American families, and his lifetime of chronic lying.

There's a reason two-thirds of Americans say President Trump was the clear winner of the debate — because he was.

I was happy to meet with the Keystone and Eastern Chapters of Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) National, representing more than 23,000 members in Pennsylvania. We discussed the Biden Administration’s excessive regulatory overreach, which is negatively impacting their small business members through new rules and regulations. I will continue to fight against burdensome regulations that hinder the success of America’s small businesses.

I had the pleasure of welcoming Kaylee Meeker, the 9th District 2024 Congressional Art Competition winner, to D.C. to celebrate her remarkable achievement. Her artwork, “Operation Desert Shield,” will be displayed in the Capitol for the following year. I sincerely thank her and all participants for their hard work and incredible talents. Congratulations, Kaylee!

I was honored to recognize a pillar of our community and my friend, John L. Augustine, the recipient of Leadership Northeast's Distinguished Leadership Alumni Award. Now serving as President and CEO of Penn's Northeast, John’s service to Northeastern Pennsylvania has extended over the past 25 years. His commitment to economic development in our region has benefited our communities and improved the quality of life for area residents. John Augustine proves that you don't need to hold elected office to make communities better. Click here to watch my remarks.
