This morning, Utah senators responded to the results from an uncertain presidential election. GOP Sen. Mike Lee says he looks forward to helping President-elect Donald Trump, and GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch is similarly determined. Now is the time to bring the nation together, Hatch said.
Read their statements below:
“This entire election year has been humbling for all Americans, and especially so for the political establishment in Washington, D.C. The message of 2016 is that the American people have become increasingly skeptical of the federal government.”
“I congratulate President-elect Trump and look forward to helping him repeal Obamacare, return education to the states, reduce regulation and confirm conservative judges.”
— Senator Mike Lee
“Congratulations to President-elect Trump on his historic election. The American people also voted for Republican majorities in the House and Senate. After a contested election, now is the time to bring the nation together and seek reforms to create jobs, boost economic growth, enable greater individual opportunity, and help put the country and its citizens back on the right track. I look forward to working closely with President-elect Trump to address the critical issues facing our country.”
— Senator Orrin Hatch
