My form email from Ohio's Rob Portman [View all]

The man took millions in Russian money through the NRA in 2016.

Dear Tom,

Thank you for taking the time to contact me to express your opinion about President Donald Trump. It's good to hear from you.

Ultimately, we all want our country to succeed. To bring about that success, I believe that I have a responsibility to be an independent voice for Ohio.

I have supported efforts by the Trump Administration to strengthen our military, reform our tax code, create more jobs, reduce unnecessary regulation, combat the growing drug addiction epidemic, secure our border, and modernize our trade ties with Canada and Mexico. I applauded President Trump's choices of Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to serve as Supreme Court Justices, and I have supported the Administrationís efforts to defeat ISIS, denuclearize the Korean Peninsula, and negotiate a stronger and more comprehensive agreement with Iran.

However, there are also times when I disagree with the President. For example, I voted against President Trumpís national emergency declaration regarding the humanitarian crisis at the southern border, which would have threatened the system of checks and balances and set a concerning precedent by allowing presidential national emergency powers to circumvent Congressional authority to allocate federal funding. I also disagreed with President Trumpís decision to quickly withdraw troops from northern Syria, which sent the wrong message to our allies and further destabilized the region.

Regarding impeachment, the Senate has the sole power to evaluate the case that has been presented by the House of Representatives. I will faithfully perform my duty and listen to all the facts of the case. However, based on what has been presented thus far, there is nothing that rises to the level of removing of a duly elected president from office.

Our country faces serious challenges, including an epidemic of drug addiction and our growing national security threats. To solve these problems, we need to come together to deliver results and make a real difference in the lives of Ohioans and all Americans. With more than 40 bills signed into law, I have a track record of successfully standing up for Ohio and I look forward to continuing to be an independent voice for you in the U.S. Senate.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact my office. For more information you can visit my website at www.portman.senate.gov. Please keep in touch.


Sincerely,

Rob Portman
U.S. Senator
