Washington, DC - Congresswoman Nita M. Lowey (D-NY), Ranking Democrat on the House Appropriations Committee, issued the following statement regarding the Inauguration of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States:

“Today, Donald Trump missed a chance to begin to heal the wounds of a divisive campaign and explain his vision for a bright, inclusive American future.

“The time for campaigning is over. Republicans and Democrats must join together in our efforts to make responsible investments in creating jobs, improving healthcare and schools, and helping working families make ends meet.

“I congratulate Donald J. Trump on his inauguration as our 45th President. But I will fight tirelessly to hold him to his promise of being a President for all Americans. We must unite to build a more perfect union for our children and grandchildren, with equality and justice for all.”
