Gridlock has paralyzed Congress for much of U.S. Sen. Thom Tillis’ first two years on Capitol Hill, but the North Carolina Republican said Thursday that he expects to see tremendous progress under President Donald Trump’s administration.
“It’s the dawn of a new era,” Tillis said. “I think it’s an era where the American people have given us an opportunity to produce results, not settle into our partisan camps and promise to get things done and never do. I think President Trump is going to demand results, and being somebody that likes to produce results, I’m excited about being a part of that era.”
Many of Trump’s more bombastic campaign promises will wind up being more rhetoric than reality, Tillis predicted.
