In the Senate, I will work with Director Kudlow and President Trump to ensure our Tennessee businesses have the resources they need to expand and create jobs once this foreign virus is eradicated.”

National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow continued, “Under President Trump’s leadership, our economy reached new highs and unemployment set record lows which has put the administration in a strong position to provide assistance and help to alleviate financial stress for small businesses and families as we all work to prevent the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus. The Administration is working hard to help Tennesseans recover from deadly storms, prevent the spread of the coronavirus and alleviate financial stress for your small businesses and families. I look forward to answering your questions with my friend Bill Hagerty who has the complete and total endorsement of President Trump. We need him in the Senate.”
