“On my way here, we had the pleasure of a visit from Chuck Schumer and his first grandchild, Noah. And Noah looked in at the House and saw the American flag. He got some chocolate at my office. And it was the perfect way to begin, because he is the future — and all that we do is about the future.”
“When he was the Crown Prince, I worked with His Majesty King Abdullah II as well as King Hussein. King Abdullah brings a wealth of knowledge, intelligence, strategic thinking and values to discussions between our two nations. As House Speaker, I take great pride in America’s relationship with His Majesty.”
