Happy birthday to the best President America has ever had leading and caring for her citizens.

Happy Birthday best President!🎂🎁🎉💝

Wishing President Trump a very happy and blessed birthday today, many more to come for such a great and bold man. This county needs his leadership back.

You know he can’t see this, right? As he is banned from Facebook

There is an error in your post. He is former President Trump. As an elected official yourself, you should be aware of the difference.

🤢🤮🤢🤮🤢🤮🤢

Where's my barf icon?

Happy birthday. May God bless you and us with 4 more years

You know, to this day all former presidents are still honored with the title of president- the current person in office is called that as was falsely elected to that office but that’s a whole other can of worms- just know, for those confused, the title of President remains valid for former and current office holders- usually “former” is included but not always. Pay attention.

❤️❤️❤️

Happy Birthday

Congrats. You will do an incredible job for Texas!

Maybe you can help create college intern rights that protect them from sexual harassment. Maybe even specifically from you.

"affect", not "effect". Yeesh.

Pecos, TX, 2,000 rooms at oil/gas man camp are filled with illegals and being paid for. Another 2,000 rooms are being paid for reserved waiting for more illegals. Information as told to me by someone that lives out in that part of our Texas. - South of SanAntonio, a Holiday Inn has 2 upper floors being paid for empty waiting on their turn to entertain illegals.

Will you be fair in inclusion of all citizens?

Time will tell if it is like the voters rights or what ever you call it not a good thing

Always proud of your integrity and friendship

So proud of you and for the people of Texas! Thanks for all you do.

Thank you sir!!!

Congratulations!

Congratulations Dr Schwertner

👍🏻

This really concerns me given your association with the do-nothing legislation recently passed & signed for the electrical grid.

Congratulations , I am hoping this position can help you exert improvement of conditions of care in our nursing homes.

Congratulations

Your most important work now is to vote no on the voter Integrity Bill. It is the most draconian set of voting obstructions on the country, and that is an embarrassing record for our state to have. This is a voter suppression initiative, and does nothing to protect our rights at the ballot box. Republicans benefited immensely from the huge voter turnout in 2020 You are cutting off your nose to spite your face, because there was mo voter fraud in the last election - not statewide or nationally. Unless you consider 16 identified instances of wrong addresses out of millions in our state.

Constituent here with some questions: To what degree did you listen to any of the students, parents, educators, historians, school superintendents, and business leaders who tried to talk with you during this session? We all tried respectfully to give you a more informed perspective so you would truly protect ALL of our children while respecting the knowledge of academic experts and professionals. Instead, you listened to fringe extremists who know nothing about what teachers do and what kids learn in social studies classes. Your votes in this session do psychological and intellectual harm to kids of color and kids who are LGBTQ. Please explain how we should trust that you are going to actually listen next time around when you refusted to listen and even refused to allow students who learn in African American Studies and Mexican American Studies to earn graduation credit for those classes? Why shouldn't my son deserve to earn graduation credit for studying his own history?

Thank you, Dr Schwertner!

GOP FASCIST INSANITY. Those who create problems are incapable of correcting them. VOTE Dr. Charles Schwertner, Office of the Lieutenant Governor of Texas, Dan Patrick, Greg Abbott, and their comrades OUT!!!
