Senator Paul talks State of the Union address, U.S. military

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Kentucky Senator Rand Paul was back to work in Washington D.C. Monday ahead of tonight’s State of the Union address from President Donald Trump.

Paul spoke on the Senate floor about his support for President Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from the middle east, a decision that has faced challenges from both Republicans and Democrats alike.

While Paul anticipates President Trump to discuss immigration and a border wall during the State of the Union address, he also hopes the president will talk about this pressing matter involving the United States military.

“We spend over $50,000,000,000 a year building roads and bridges and hotels in Afghanistan,” Paul said. “The president’s talking about bringing that money home, which I completely agree with.”

Paul will be in attendance as President Trump delivers his second State of the Union address tonight at 8 p.m.
