Republican Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch received the medal of freedom from President Donald Trump Friday afternoon, as he is the longest-serving member of the U.S. Senate.

At a medal of freedom ceremony at the White House, Hatch, the current Senate pro tempore, received praise from Trump for his work in rewriting the tax code and for helping “hard-working Americans get through life.” Trump also brought up Hatch’s work “reshaping” federal courts as well as protecting religious freedom, according to Deseret News.

Hatch announced in January 2018 he was retiring, after serving four decades in the Senate.
