Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) released the following statement regarding the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump:

“Today is a huge day! It was incredible to look out at the hundreds of thousands of Americans who traveled from all across the country to witness the peaceful transfer of power to the Trump Administration. 

Trump Swearing In

The world watched President Trump expound upon his hopes for the future of this nation. We listened to him speak once again to the forgotten man and woman who feel as though they have been left behind. And we heard that President Trump is committed now, more than ever, to truly put America first.

I agree with President Trump that, ‘when America is united, America is totally unstoppable’ and after hearing his message today, I am even more optimistic about our path forward. I am looking forward to working with President Trump and the 115th Congress to make our hopes and dreams – and those of millions of Americans - a reality.”
