Congress members respond to Donald Trump's speech

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Donald Trump's joint address to Congress was a big hit with Republican lawmakers Tuesday night, praising the president's tone and his legislative agenda.

"I thought the president delivered a good speech tonight," U.S. Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, said. "I thought he was particularly good in talking about some of the problems we face as a country and how we need to work together as Republicans and Democrats alike to solve those problems."

In a statement on Twitter, U.S. Rep. Dave Joyce, R-Ohio, said Trump "laid out a strong vision," citing secure borders and a focus on American manufacturing.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., was even more effusive in his praise of the president's speech.

"That was a home run," Ryan said in a statement afterward. "President Trump delivered a bold, optimistic message to the American people.

"From repealing and replacing Obamacare to revamping our outdated tax code and keeping our country safe from the threat of radical Islam, we are committed to working with the Trump administration to deliver results."

U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, said having Trump in the White House and Republicans controlling both the House and Senate presents an opportunity for the GOP.

"I am eager to lead the fight for our values and rack up big wins for conservative causes," Hatch said. "I look forward to working with our new president, to fulfill our promises, and I applaud him for his leadership."

Trump's promises to rebuild the nation's infrastructure and commitment to American steel are encouraging to U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, but he said the president must fulfill his commitments.

"I've shared my ideas for fulfilling his promises on trade and infrastructure jobs and I'm ready to get to work with President Trump whenever he's willing to do what's right for Ohio," Brown said in a statement.

But Brown opposes the efforts by the president and the GOP to repeal Obamacare.

"I agree with Gov. Kasich that it is dangerous and irresponsible to double down on efforts to throw 900,000 Ohioans off their insurance without a plan to replace it," Brown said. "Instead of taking health care away from Ohioans, President Trump should focus on working with Congress to lower the cost of prescription drugs for working families."

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Trump's actions don't match his rhetoric.

"The president's speech was utterly disconnected from the cruel reality of his conduct," Pelosi said in a statement. "The Trump Administration has spent 40 days putting Wall Street first, making America sick again, sowing fear in our communities, and ensuring Russia maintains its grip on our security and our democracy."

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., had a similar response on Twitter:

More populist talk, but the American ppl want action & the President has enacted hard right policies. #JointAddress #JointSession
