Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Jim Risch (R-ID) released the following statement regarding the inauguration of America's 45th President, Donald J. Trump:

“Congratulations to President Donald J. Trump on becoming our 45th President of the United States. It was a privilege to be a part of today’s ceremonies and to witness the peaceful transfer of power between presidential administrations. Now, with a unified government, the Legislative and Executive branches have an opportunity to work together and address the issues most concerning to Americans. This includes reforming our broken regulatory system and tax code, reducing our nation’s out of control spending, and addressing the costs associated with health care. I look forward to working with my colleagues in Congress and the new administration toward these goals.”
