Congressman Robert Aderholt (AL-04) today released the following statement to congratulate Donald Trump and Governor Mike Pence on being elected to the Presidency of the United States.

"I want to congratulate Donald Trump and Governor Mike Pence on their decisive victory in Tuesday's election. Donald Trump began a movement in June of 2015 that had been boiling just beneath the surface in our country. People who felt left out, left behind and sick of eight years of failed liberal policies delivered a revolution at the ballot box.

"Voters across America, from the South, to the West, from the Rust Belt to the Sun Belt, delivered a mandate of change by putting Republicans in charge of the White House and both Houses of Congress. We now must deliver on the promises we have made to the people during this election cycle.

"In addition to repealing and replacing Obamacare, tackling immigration reform and once and for all securing our border, we need to provide relief for the American worker. Coal miners and farmers are being crushed by EPA regulations. Steel workers are losing jobs to bad trade deals. And a majority of Americans, even those who voted for Secretary Clinton, believe our country is headed in the wrong direction. It's time to change course.

"The voters gave marching orders at the polls on Tuesday. Those orders are clear and I will work with my Republican colleagues to see that a new agenda for the American people is our top priority."
