[Page H252] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] STOP IMPEACHMENT AND SUPPORT PRESIDENT TRUMP (Mr. BANKS asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. BANKS. Madam Speaker, during the President's upcoming State of the Union Address, he has the opportunity to deliver a strong message of unity, peace, and hope to all of those who tune in, both Americans and all who are watching abroad. Just in the last few months, we have seen that America is the beacon of hope for the people of Hong Kong and Taipei, who are suffering under pressure from Beijing. We have seen that America is the lifeline for people in Beirut and Tehran who find themselves under the thumb of the Iranian regime. This is a critical moment in world history. People are looking to the United States and our President for leadership more than ever. Madam Speaker, I urge my colleagues in the majority party to refrain the impeachment antics and charades. Don't be petty. Rise above your worst impulses and support our President. The world is watching. The SPEAKER pro tempore. Members are reminded to address their remarks to the Chair. ____________________
