WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., today issued the following statement regarding the inauguration of the 45th president of the United States, Donald J. Trump:

“Today, I am proud to congratulate President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and their families. And I thank outgoing President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and their families for their service to our nation.

“Today marks a peaceful transition of power between administrations. It is a great reminder that we have a remarkable country and that the Constitution is a remarkable document that has afforded our country this opportunity for more than 225 years.

“During the weeks and months ahead, I look forward to working with the president and my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to get the best results for Georgia and America.

“Under the new administration, I look forward to great support for our military, a serious path to defeat the Islamic State and terror groups and to provide better support for our veterans.

“I look forward to getting our economy moving and providing better job opportunities for all Americans. By rolling back burdensome government regulations and leveling the playing field, we can allow hardworking Americans and job-creators to again reach their full potential.

“We are already taking steps toward bringing relief to families and businesses by unleashing free-market competition to bring down the cost of health care and health insurance premiums.

“I am also committed to continuing to work to ensure that Georgia’s ports are ready to ship American goods wherever they are needed.

“God bless the United States of America.”
