Mr. President, later today this body will vote to confirm my friend Jim Bridenstine to be the next NASA administrator.
In that position, he will be in charge of rebuilding a space program that matches the pioneering spirit and determination of the American people.
I have known Congressman Bridenstine for many years, and I know that he is just the man for this important undertaking.
Let us review his record. It will show that Jim Bridenstine’s service to our country is matched only by his eagerness to press the boundaries of sky and space.

Mr. President, I’d like to speak for a few minutes about Ryan Nelson, who has been nominated as solicitor for the Department of the Interior.

Ryan is a fantastic choice for this position at Interior. As a native of Idaho Falls, he is a fellow Westerner who understands the issues confronting the region.

Good afternoon, thank you all for being here.

And thanks to the Federalist Society for organizing this conference on restoring Article I of the Constitution, which is a subject near and dear to my heart.

Article I, of course, is the section of the Constitution that enumerates the powers of Congress.

Mr. President,

Two hundred years ago this month, a man was born into slavery in a cabin not far from here in Maryland.

The child knew his mother only briefly; they were cruelly separated when he was young. He knew his father only by the rumors.

Mr. President,

There is good news. There is great news. And then there is the story of Lucas Warren of Dalton, Georgia.

I do not know Lucas. For he is only 18 months old – and so has the good sense not to consort with politicians. But like millions of Americans who have not met Lucas, I will never forget him.

Mr. President,

Right now, the United States is one of just seven countries in the whole world that allow elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

And we are not in good company.

Of the other six countries that allow elective abortions at that late stage, half are authoritarian communist countries with horrible records on human rights.

I'd like to start by thanking the National Association of Evangelicals for inviting me to speak.

It is heartening to see so many young Christians who are engaged with their faith as well as public controversies-and so early in the morning, too.

This conference is a unique opportunity for you to learn about the serious challenges facing our country, and how Christians can respond to them.

Mr. President, today hundreds of thousands of Americans from all walks of life will participate in the 45th annual March for Life.

Why do these citizens march, year after year?

It certainly isn't for their health. Or for the media coverage.

No, these Americans march on behalf of those who cannot.
