Hatch Meets with Trump, Discusses Supreme Court and Key Utah Issues

Senator Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, the senior Republican in the United States Senate, accepted the invitation of President Donald J. Trump to meet with him at the White House this afternoon to discuss a wide-ranging legislative agenda to deliver on shared priorities.

“Today I had the opportunity to engage with our new President in a lengthy discussion of our ambitious agenda. We talked about a number of issues important to Utahns, and he stands ready to work with me on these matters. I was especially honored that the President solicited my views on his upcoming Supreme Court nomination, and I was eager to share my perspective, having led the fight on more than a dozen nominations to the high court. After our meeting, I am very optimistic about the opportunity to work with the President on behalf of our state and nation.”
