Governor Abbott Issues Statement On 2016 Presidential Election
AUSTIN – Governor Greg Abbott issued the following statement on Donald Trump’s election as the 45th President of the United States:
“I congratulate Donald Trump on being elected the next President of the United States.
“One thing from this election is abundantly clear — millions of Americans feel they have been ignored by a political class in Washington, D.C. that prioritizes protecting an elite establishment before We the People. Now that the people have spoken, it is essential that elected officials work together to address the enormous challenges facing our nation.
“I look forward to working with the new administration to ensure that we secure our border, restore the balance of power between the states and the federal government, and end the federal overreach that has unfortunately become a staple of the outgoing executive’s legacy.
“Here in Texas, we will continue to fight for conservative, limited government principles that create economic opportunity and prosperity for all.”
