Wagner Statement on the Election of Donald Trump

For Immediate Release: November 9, 2016

Ballwin, MO – Ann Wagner (MO-02) released the following statement on the overwhelming victory of President-Elect Donald Trump.

“I am excited for a new era with President-Elect Donald Trump and a unified Republican government that will work to solve the problems that we are facing each and every day. The American people have spoken clearly and forcefully. Now is the time that we can halt the growth of federal spending and push back against government intrusion. This will start with the Executive Branch reversing and, when necessary, repealing the countless rules, regulations and executive orders that President Obama has decreed with his pen and phone.

“It is time to confront injustice and give a voice to the voiceless. We in the U.S. House have a responsibility to our constituents to be their voice in this process and make absolutely sure that the American people are directing this wave of change. Last night, our voices were heard around the world. It is time to usher in a new, more prosperous future for all Americans. Let’s get to work.”
