Crapo Comments on the Inauguration of President Donald Trump

Washington, D.C. – Following the inauguration of President Donald Trump, Idaho Senator Mike Crapo issued the following statement:

“Today, we witnessed the peaceful transfer of power that has been the hallmark of our democracy since its founding.  In this election, voters chose a candidate who put forth a vision to create an opportunity society for Americans.  This vision builds on conservative principles of a limited government, finally reining in irresponsible federal spending, a strong national defense, and an emphasis on free market principles.  These policies will enable all Americans to build and achieve their own American dream, while strengthening our economy and allowing businesses to grow and thrive.  Today, President Trump took the oath of office and will, together with Congress,  begin to implement a policy agenda that delivers opportunities for our nation.  It was a privilege to be part of today’s ceremonies and I congratulate President Trump on becoming our 45th President.  I look forward to the work ahead and setting a sound course for our nation.”
