Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell praised the administration and his party for their landmark accomplishments over the course of this year.
During a press briefing Friday, McConnell noted the president and lawmakers were able to put a “well-qualified” Conservative voice in the nations highest court for possibly decades in reference to Justice Neil Gorsuch.
McConnell also pointed out they were able to achieve regulatory reform to help economic growth by repealing several Obama-era regulations.
The GOP leader also said he is thrilled to see the newly passed tax bill is already benefiting working Americans.
He is confident the president and Congress will continue to be very productive in the coming year.
“We worked together seamlessly and I think we go into the new year with a high level of competence and our ability to work together with the administration and to have similar priorities,” said the majority leader.
McConnell also said he will meet with the president and House Speaker Paul Ryan in the near future to discuss next year’s agenda.
