Yarmuth Statement on President Trump's State of the Union Address

WASHINGTON– Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) issued the statement below following President Donald J. Trump’s State of the Union address:

“40 million Americans currently live in poverty, 53 million American workers—44 percent of our workforce—barely make $18,000 a year, and the typical American family is worse off than they were 20 years ago. We did not hear about them tonight. We did not hear about families who are struggling day-to-day to pay the bills. We didn’t hear from a President who understands or cares about the real challenges facing American families, we heard from a President who only cares about his friends.”
