Donnelly Statement after Meeting with President Trump

Senator discussed Supreme Court vacancy, Right to Try law, and impact of trade policies on Indiana steel and Hoosier farmers

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly released the following statement after meeting with President Trump at the White House this evening.

Donnelly said, “I had a good conversation with the president on a range of issues, including the Supreme Court vacancy, our work together on the recently enacted Right to Try law, and the impact of the Administration’s trade policies on Indiana steel, manufacturers, and Hoosier farmers. When the president presents the Senate with his choice for the Supreme Court, I will thoroughly review the record and qualifications of that nominee.

“When it comes to our country’s trade challenges, we discussed our shared desire to crack down on bad actors including China. I also relayed to President Trump the growing concerns I’ve heard from Hoosier farmers about falling commodity prices and the uncertainty created by current trade policy.”
