Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) attended the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States, President Donald Trump, and released the following statement afterwards:

“The Presidential Inauguration is a uniquely American experience that celebrates the peaceful transition of power from one President to the next. Today I was honored to host over 150 constituents from across the North Country who made the trip to Washington, D.C., to take part in this historic occasion.
