March 21, 2017
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after he attended President Trump’s meeting with House Republicans on Tuesday morning.
“President Trump came as who he is -- direct, colorful, funny, persuasive, pointed, and a master dealmaker,” said Cole. “He made it crystal clear how much was on the line. He thanked members by name who had moved in his direction and they were from across the political spectrum of the Conference. And he prodded by name some who had not yet committed. It was a tremendously effective political performance on an intimate stage before a star struck audience. Trump was first rate in every way.
“This is part of the job that he enjoys and excels at -- closing the deal,” concluded Cole.
