Congressman Jodey Arrington praised President Donald Trump after his first State of the Union address on Tuesday night.

Here's the full text of his statement:

"President Trump is doing what the American people elected him to do: lead and put America first. Just one year into his presidency, we have seen illegal border crossings reach record lows, the stock market reach record highs, and a renewed sense of American strength and optimism.

"Building on the economic momentum of 2017, President Trump laid out a bold vision that points to even better days ahead; a safer America as a result of strengthening our national security and securing our border, a stronger America as we expand trade and get people back to work, and a freer America as we continue to unleash the limitless potential of our economy and the American people.

"From passing historic tax reform to a sea change of conservative jurists, our unified Republican leadership is delivering on our promises and transferring power back to the people."
