Vice President Mike Pence: “The nomination of Neil M. Gorsuch of Colorado to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States is confirmed.” 

Fox News: The Senate confirmed Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court on Friday, filling the critical ninth seat that has been vacant for over a year and capping a tumultuous debate that saw Republicans overhaul the way the chamber operates in order to overcome what they described as an unprecedented Democratic filibuster.

The 54-45 vote, in which three Democrats crossed party lines to support the appeals court justice, is expected to restore a 5-4 conservative tilt on the bench. Once sworn in, Gorsuch will join the court and begin to hear cases, in the seat once held by the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in February 2016.

President Donald J. Trump delivers the Weekly Address, April 7, 2017

 

WHITE HOUSE MEMO
President Donald J. Trump calls on all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria – and also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types. We ask for God’s wisdom as we face the challenges of our very troubled world. We pray for the lives of the wounded, and for the souls of those who have passed. And we hope that as long as America stands for justice, then peace will – in the end – prevail.

Honoring our Heroes’ Sacrifice – Wounded Warrior Project and Gold Star Wives

Honoring our Heroes’ Sacrifice
APRIL 7, 2017 AT 8:51 AM ET BY VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE
Yesterday, the President and I had the high honor of welcoming the Wounded Warrior Project to the White House – an organization that has faithfully served our servicemen and women who have been injured in the defense of the freedom we hold dear. In these men and women, I saw courage. I saw valor. I saw determination. And above all else, I saw patriots and heroes.

And earlier this week, my wife Karen and I had the great privilege of hosting a gathering of Gold Star Wives to express our eternal thanks and our unwavering support for their spouses’ sacrifice. This nation owes them a debt of gratitude that we can never fully repay.

Among these men and women, we were reminded of the depth of sacrifice of those who’ve borne the battle, and the anguish that weighs on the hearts of their loved ones. Our servicemen and women, and the loved ones who stand beside them, are the best of us and an inspiration to us all.

Rest assured, our service members’ sacrifice on behalf of America will never go unnoticed or unappreciated in this White House. Just as they have fought for our freedom and our country, so will we fight for our men and women in uniform.

Under the leadership of President Trump, we will rebuild our military, restore the arsenal of democracy, and provide our soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, and Coast Guard with the resources and training they need to accomplish their mission, protect our families, and come home safe to theirs.

As the father of a United States Marine, I couldn’t be more proud to stand alongside a President who will fight for our men and women in uniform every single day. As President Trump said earlier today, “Our way of life continues because of men and women who are willing to sacrifice anything and everything to protect their fellow warriors, and to protect all of us.”

And so, we will continue to lift up the brave men and women who have answered the call to serve. With one grateful heart, and one mighty spirit, the people of our nation thank you. The President and I salute you. And we vow that your sacrifice will never be in vain.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I just want to say that President Xi and all of his representatives have been really interesting to be with. I think we have made tremendous progress in our relationship with China. My representatives have been meeting one-on-one with their counterparts from China. And I think, truly, progress has been made. We’ll be making a lot of additional progress.

The relationship developed by President Xi and myself I think is outstanding. We look forward to being together many times in the future. And I believe lots of very potentially bad problems will be going away.

So I just want to thank President Xi for being with us in the United States. It’s a tremendous honor for me and all of my representatives to host the President and his representatives. And again, progress has been made.

Thank you very much. Thank you.

(President Xi speaks in Chinese.)

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, I agree 100 percent, Mr. President. And thank you very much. And again, a tremendous honor to have you in the United States and in Mar-a-Lago. Thank you very much.
