Congressman Adam Smith Statement on President-Elect Trump

Washington D.C. – Congressman Adam Smith released the following statement regarding President-elect Donald Trump:

November 10, 2016

“President-elect Trump ran the most bitter, divisive, and negative presidential campaign in history.  Now he claims he wants to change his tone. For the sake of our country, I hope he does. 

“From day one, I will do everything I can to hold President-elect Trump and his administration accountable. I would like to see his agenda create good jobs, increase equality and equity, and respect the rights of all Americans; particularly women, communities of color, LGBTQ individuals, people with disabilities, and immigrants. However, if he continues to divide us as a nation, I will fight him every step of the way.”
