The Biden Administration has continued to ignore the crisis at our southern border and it is only getting worse. For months, encounters at the southern border have been shattering records. The Administration needs to wake up and address the humanitarian crisis they created.
đź“šICYMI: I joined@cspanN@BookTVV to discuss a book I just finished reading about polio in America. As we work to put COVID-19 behind us, it had some powerful lessons about the importance of vaccination. Watch the full conversation:youtu.be/QV5rHAgoj2wx
Let’s be clear: With a Democratic President, a Democratic House, and a Democratic Senate, Democrats have every tool they need to raise the debt limit. It is their sole responsibility. Republicans will not facilitate another reckless, partisan taxing and spending spree.
Democrats have every tool they need to address the debt limit on their own. Just like they plan to bury Americans in taxing, spending, & inflation on a partisan basis. Democrats have unified control & brag about the radicalism they’re ramming through. So they'll be on their own.
Democrats have chosen a partisan path on spending. They want to tax and spend historic sums on radical, far-left policies with no Republican votes and no Republican input. But first they're demanding Republicans help lift their credit limit to make it happen? That's absurd.
Back in the springtime, Washington Democrats dumped trillions of dollars in liberal borrowing and spending onto the American people. Now, as workers pay the price, Democrats are trying to jam through yet another reckless taxing and spending spree.
The consequences of the Biden Administration’s hasty retreat from Afghanistan were not just foreseeable. They were foreseen. And yet on this President’s watch, we left Americans and vulnerable Afghans behind.
I’m about to join Congressional leaders on the steps of the U.S. Capitol to reflect on the anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 attacks. c-span.org/video/?514576-…
Twenty years ago, our country changed forever. Thousands of innocent Americans were killed. First responders rushed into flames. And a generation of heroes would take the fight to the terrorists and successfully keep our homeland safe. Never forget. And never again.
Glad to hear reports the White House is taking my advice and pulling the terrible nomination of David Chipman. Absurd that a vocal opponent of Americans' constitutional rights was ever picked to run ATF. This is a win for the Second Amendment and law-abiding American citizens.
ICYMI: I joined the @GuyBensonShow to discuss the Biden administration’s disastrous exit from Afghanistan, the importance of vaccines, and the Democrats’ reckless tax and spending spree. bit.ly/3zGMPtp
Tune in now to the @GuyBensonShow. I am joining @guypbenson to discuss President Biden's botched exit from Afghanistan and how Democrats' reckless taxing and spending spree would hurt American families. radio.foxnews.com/fox-news-talk/…
As a boy I fought polio. Today, America’s been polio-free for 40 years thanks to vaccination. We’ll beat COVID-19 with vaccines too. Protect yourself and your family. Get vaccinated.
President Biden promised he wouldn’t pull out of Afghanistan before every American had gotten out. He broke that promise and abandoned Americans and our Afghan partners. The President's reckless withdrawal has created a humanitarian disaster and emboldened the terrorists.
The Biden Administration’s exit from Afghanistan is one of the worst foreign policy decisions in American history. Just because we decided to quit fighting doesn't mean the terrorists go away. They are emboldened and reinvigorated by President Biden's horrible policy decision.
Tune in now to @FoxNewsSunday. I am joining Chris Wallace to discuss the Biden Administration’s disastrous exit from Afghanistan.
It is sickening and enraging to hear that at least 12 U.S. servicemembers have been killed at the hands of terrorists in Kabul. We need to redouble our global efforts to confront these barbarian enemies who want to kill Americans and attack our homeland. My full statement:
Good conversation with @IsraeliPM Bennett last night. We discussed shared challenges: Global terrorism, Iran's dangerous aspirations, anti-Semitism & BDS. Reaffirmed my support for deeper strategic partnership and preserving Israel's qualitative military edge & freedom of action.
President Biden’s reckless decisions in Afghanistan have alienated our NATO allies and weakened our global efforts against terror.
The President needs to clearly and firmly state the United States will stay as long as it takes and use whatever force is necessary to ensure we do not abandon our people or our friends. But he keeps paying more attention to arbitrary timetables than to reality.
The manner in which President Biden is cutting and running from Afghanistan is a colossal failure. He continues to communicate to the world that, on his watch, the greatest superpower in world history will let terrorists and thugs push us around. My full statement:
Tune in now to @FoxNews. I am joining @DanaPerino and @BillHemmer to discuss the Biden Administration’s botched exit from Afghanistan and the Democrats’ reckless taxing and spending spree.
Big milestone: The FDA has fully approved the Pfizer vaccine. An even further testament to the genius of science and success of Operation Warp Speed. Multiple vaccines have proven safe and effective at keeping us safe from COVID. If you haven’t been vaccinated yet, do it today.
The Biden Administration’s single-minded pursuit of quick withdrawal from Afghanistan ignored the clear warnings of national security experts. The foreseeable and avoidable consequences: a humanitarian crisis and a global terrorist resurgence. My full statement:
We have more troops in Afghanistan now trying to rescue our people than we had before President Biden’s precipitous retreat. This administration’s reckless withdrawal will leave an indelible stain on America’s reputation.
Tune in now to @CBSEveningNews. I am joining @NorahODonnell to discuss the Biden Administration’s disastrous retreat from Afghanistan.
ICYMI: I joined @hughhewitt to talk about holding the Biden Administration accountable for its ill-advised, destabilizing retreat, and the crisis it’s leaving behind in Afghanistan: youtube.com/watch?v=TUMY3B…
President Biden’s shameful decision to retreat from Afghanistan is a precipitous failure of American leadership and a stain on our reputation. The United States had the capacity to avoid this disaster.
Tune in now to @BretBaier. I will be discussing the unmitigated disaster unfolding in Afghanistan on the Biden Administration’s watch.
Join me tonight 6pmET on @FoxNews — I’ll be joined by @LeaderMcConnell and the Pakastani Ambassador to the U.N. #foxnews #SpecialReport

What we are seeing in Afghanistan is an unmitigated disaster. The Biden Administration’s retreat will leave a stain on the reputation of the United States. And it didn’t have to happen this way.
The Biden Administration’s botched exit from Afghanistan including the frantic evacuation of Americans and vulnerable Afghans from Kabul is a shameful failure of American leadership. The United States had the capacity to avoid this disaster. My full statement:
I just spoke to Afghanistan’s Ambassador to the United States, Adela Raz. We had an urgent conversation about the deteriorating security situation in Afghanistan and the unfolding humanitarian crisis. My full statement:
The Biden Administration has reduced U.S. officials to pleading with Islamic extremists to please spare our Embassy as they prepare to overrun Kabul. A massive, predictable, and preventable disaster. My new statement: bit.ly/3fVBJZW
Senate Democrats are about to take their first step toward yet another reckless, partisan taxing and spending spree. It will push costs even higher for families. It will shatter President Biden’s promise of no middle-class tax hikes. Long day of debate and voting ahead.
In a few days, Democrats want to put far-left radicalism on the Senate floor. The American people will know where every Senator stands on a slew of bad ideas: ❌New welfare without work requirements ❌Green New Deal mandates ❌Massive tax hikes ❌Amnesty amid a border crisis
On Democrats' watch, six months in: ▪️Painful inflation ▪️Persistent unemployment ▪️Trillions in runaway spending ▪️Southern border crisis ▪️Continued violent crime surge The more Democrats’ policies take effect, the more problems Americans face. bit.ly/3ymBbU7
It’s been a little more than six months since the Biden Administration and our Democrat-led Congress were sworn in. So let’s zoom out from the daily political drama and ask the simplest possible question: How’s it going? 👇D
The one thing we know that works at stopping COVID-19 is vaccines. We've developed three highly effective vaccines in under one year. And 97% of people in the hospital right now with COVID-19 haven’t gotten one. The total conclusive case for vaccination.
Democrats' rampant spending has already fueled painful inflation. But now they want to ram through another $3.5 trillion reckless taxing-and-spending spree? That’s the opposite of what this recovering economy needs right now.
Al-Shabab is a terrorist group that wants to kill Americans. The Trump administration knew it. The Obama administration knew it. It’s not complicated. It is baffling that some Senators are upset that the U.S. is striking these terrorists.
Based on a commitment from Leader Schumer to Senators Portman and Sinema that the Portman-Sinema amendment to be filed will be the substitute amendment, I will vote to proceed to the bipartisan infrastructure bill.
More than 80% of Americans are worried about the rising cost of living. More than 70% are worried about slamming our economy with big tax hikes.  But Democrats’ big priority is another reckless taxing & spending spree that would give Americans $3.5T more reasons to worry.
The Senate is grieving this morning. Our prayers are with the family of our dear friend and former colleague Senator Mike Enzi at this tragic time which has come entirely too soon.
Just months ago, Americans were very optimistic. But on this Administration’s watch, that has plummeted. Higher inflation and costs, higher crime, COVID uptick, border crisis. Now most Americans are pessimistic. Another reckless tax-and-spend spree will only make this worse. twitter.com/SRCC/status/14…
This weekend, we received news that our friend and former colleague Sen. Mike Enzi was involved in a serious accident while riding his bike. I know members on both sides are very much thinking of Mike at this time. We are praying for his health and for the entire Enzi family.
Glad to meet again with leaders of Kentucky’s Cuban American community today to discuss our shared commitment to stand against Cuba's brutal socialist regime.   The people of Cuba deserve our nation’s strong support.
COVID-19 cases are on the rise. Last month @CBP had 190,000 border encounters (most in 20+ yrs). But Democrats are talking about switching off extra border protections for the health emergency and stuffing amnesty into their reckless tax-and-spend spree later this year.
On this date in 1937, the Senate rejected FDR’s proposal to pack the Supreme Court. This attempted unprincipled power grab has been viewed as a huge mistake ever since. Politicians taking over and delegitimizing the Court was an awful idea 84 years ago. It still is today.
Democrats are playing Russian roulette with taxpayer dollars. Their latest reckless tax and spending spree is threatening the stability of our economy, while their last one continues to dampen our recovery.
