Trone Celebrates Inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris

WASHINGTON — Today, Congressman David Trone (MD-06) released the following statement following the swearing-in of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris:

“Today is a great day for the American people. Finally, we have an administration that is committed to putting facts before fiction, people before politics, and hope before fear,” said Congressman Trone. “I’d like to congratulate President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris for making history today.

“While we celebrate today, we must recognize the serious challenges that our country faces. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread across the country. Workers, families, and businesses are struggling to make ends meet. An unprecedented amount of Americans are losing their lives to substance use and mental health challenges that have been exacerbated by this pandemic.

“I have full confidence that the Biden-Harris administration will confront these challenges head-on and create real, lasting change for our country. Today, I am optimistic and hopeful that our country will start to build back better and create a future for our children we can be proud of.”

Congressman David Trone was elected to the House of Representatives in November 2018 to serve the 6th District of Maryland, which includes all or part of Montgomery, Frederick, Washington, Allegany, and Garrett Counties. Trone serves on the Appropriations Committee in the 117th Congress and previously served on the Education and Labor, Foreign Affairs, and Joint Economic Committees. In Congress, Trone is fighting to make progress on issues that matter to Marylanders, including the opioid epidemic, criminal justice reform, and funding for medical research.
