The Story Behind A Momentous Event . . .

The 45th March for Life 
Thirty-eight years ago, Nellie Gray left her job as a Labor Department attorney to start a small nonprofit organization. Today, that group—the March for Life Education and Defense Fund—is responsible for organizing the largest annual pro-life rally in the world.
President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence will join the event via video satellite from the White House Rose Garden this afternoon.
Last year, an estimated 500,000 people attended the march to support a cause that has grown immensely since the first event in 1974. The annual trek along the National Mall to the U.S. Capitol is the most visible symbol of March for Life's vision: "a world where every human life is valued and protected."

A month after the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act 
President Trump signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act into law on December 22. Yesterday, he t
raveled to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to talk about the impact the legislation has had in just a few short weeks.
The stories keep rolling in. More than 2 million American workers have gotten a “Trump bonus” or “Trump pay raise.” The net tax burden on American families has fallen by $3.2 trillion. Chrysler has announced that it will move truck production from Mexico back to the United States.
H&K Equipment, where the President spoke yesterday, is investing back into its own company at a rate 50 percent higher than last year—and directly credits tax cuts for providing them with the ability to expense 100 percent of the investments they make in new equipment.

A year to remember 
Tomorrow marks one full year since Donald J. Trump swore the oath of office on the steps of the U.S. Capitol to become the 45th President of the United States.
“Today’s ceremony . . . has very special meaning,” President Trump told the country. “Because today we are not merely transferring power from one Administration to another, or from one party to another – but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People.”
In the year since, President Trump has met with thousands of Americans from coast to coast, hosted numerous foreign dignitaries in Washington, and traveled to 13 foreign countries to represent the United States abroad.

Today, President Trump will address March for Life Participants and pro-life leaders in the Rose Garden. Later, the President will meet with his national security team.

In the evening, the Vice President and Second Lady will depart Washington, D.C., on Air Force Two en route to Clare, Ireland for a refueling stop before arriving in Cairo, Egypt.
