Congressman Roger Williams whose district includes part of Fort Hood and south central Texas released the following statement after Donald J. Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States of America on the west front of the U.S. Capitol:
“This afternoon, our nation witnessed the most miraculous part of our system of government – the peaceful transfer of power.”
“Despite opposition, anger and divisiveness, we have, once again, proven that this institution, our way of life, is more powerful than our petty differences.”
“I look forward to working with President Trump as we work to rebuild our military and infrastructure, rein in an out-of-control federal bureaucracy and restore economic opportunity for all.”
Williams, a member of the House Financial Services Committee, serves as Vice Chair on the Subcommittee on Monetary Policy and Trade.
