Weekly Wrap-Up with Congressman Byron Donalds

Weekly Wrap-Up with

Congressman Byron Donalds

July 12, 2021

Last week, the House of Representatives entered a district work week. I spent my week in the district where I had the opportunity to attend hearings and continue to fight for conservative values in #FL19!

President Trump took a strong stand against the Big Tech oligopoly last week when he announced he plans to sue Facebook, Twitter, and Google over censorship in a class-action filing. His actions come after he was banned as the sitting President of the United States this past year. Freedom of speech is a Constitutional right that every American should exercise freely without the Big Tech giants threatening censorship. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has been vocal in the fight against censorship, and I applaud former President Trump for speaking out against this unjust silencing. If the sitting President can be banned, every American is at risk. It is time we hold Big Tech accountable and ensure all Americans can speak their minds and voice their concerns in our great nation.

Over the Independence Day holiday, Chicago saw at least 108 people shot with 17 fatalities, marking the highest historical number recorded over the holiday weekend. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot reportedly asked President Biden for help after the tragic weekend in her city. The reason for this skyrocketing crime in Democrat-run localities is because they defunded the police; don’t let the Democrats fool you into thinking otherwise. If Mayor Lightfoot did not take radical action against our men and women in blue, we would not see these daily tragedies. The Biden Administration continues to use rising crime as fuel to push for gun control. The American people do not want gun control which only hurts law-abiding citizens; they want law and order in their streets. Democrat leaders fail to take action to protect the American people while lives are lost daily.

A special congratulations to Tampa Bay Lightning for winning the Stanley Cup! Another win for our great state of Florida. Go Bolts!

Lastly, my wife, Erika, and I continue to pray for all those impacted in the Surfside tragedy as the rescue mission continues.

Hurricane Preparedness

Last week, Tropical Storm Elsa brought heavy rains, sustained winds of more than 60 MPH and flash floods to our community. I pray for all those impacted by this storm. Please visit my website for information on Hurricane preparedness in SWFL.

Stocking up on supplies now will ensure you’re prepared in the future.

Community Engagement

I had the opportunity to speak at the Tiger Bay Club in Tampa. The Tiger Bay Club is a non-partisan political forum. I was able to provide a legislative update from Capitol Hill, engage with constituents, as well as answer and address questions and concerns.

Upcoming Tele-Town Hall

I am hosting a Tele-Town Hall on July 19, 2021 at 7:00PM EST. This Tele-Town Hall serves as an opportunity for constituents to recieve a Congressional update and to provide their insights on how my office can best serve them and our community. For more details please visit my website.

In the Media

Last week, the Washington Times published my Op-Ed on divisive and racist Critical Race Theory. Please click the link below for the full piece:

A free trade agreement with any partner in Africa would be a hallmark achievement that benefits the American workforce, advances global prosperity, & undermines Chinese influence.

Read my recent Op-Ed on the USA’s trade relationship with Africa, exclusively on The Hill.

For America’s future, look to Africa.

I joined America’s Newsroom to discuss Rep. Cori Bush’s ludicrous comments on Independence Day. America is not a racist nation, it is the greatest country in the world. Click the link below to hear my full remarks:

I sat down with Laura Ingraham to discuss the radical attempts by the Democrat Party to hijack our elections. Watch here.

Serving the hardworking men and women of Florida’s 19th Congressional District is my distinct honor and privilege. It’s time Washington works for our community’s values, and every day I will always strive to ensure your government is working for you.
