WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, President Donald J. Trump was sworn in at the United States Capitol during the 58th Presidential Inauguration. Following her attendance at the inauguration, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) issued the following statement:

“Iowans and folks all across the country made their voices heard on November 8th, and now is the time for action. This is an opportunity to take the long-overdue steps that Iowans have been calling for, including: rolling back the WOTUS rule; pursuing Sarah’s Law; cutting wasteful spending; providing regulatory relief for our farmers, manufacturers and small businesses; ensuring our veterans get the timely, quality care they deserve; and strengthening our nation’s security and defense capabilities.

“I look forward to taking all of this feedback that I receive from Iowans on my 99 county tour and working to translate it into action to ensure a government that works for everyone.

“As we head into a new administration, Washington must put the will of the people ahead of partisan politics. This is an opportunity for folks to come together on a path forward to keep our nation safe and secure and to grow our economy.

“I have been encouraged to hear that President Trump shares these priorities, and I look forward to working with him on advancing the issues most important to Iowans.”
