NYLON – A U.S. Congressman whose district includes Livingston County became the first active member of Congress to endorse Donald Trump for President of the United States of America.
According to our news partner 13WHAM, Collins released a statement Wednesday in support of Trump’s candidacy.
“Donald Trump has clearly demonstrated that he has both the guts and the fortitude to return our nation’s jobs stolen by China, take on our enemies like ISIS, Iran, North Korea and Russia, and most importantly, reestablish the opportunity for our children and grandchildren to attain the American Dream,” said Collins in a statement. “That is why I am proud to endorse him as the next President of the United States.”
Collins is the first sitting member of Congress to endorse the billionaire real estate mogul. Collins says he and Trump share similar values, including a strong private sector background. Collins advocates running the government like a business.
“If we want to get our nation’s economy growing again and deal with the daunting fiscal issues threatening America’s future, it’s time to say no to professional politicians and yes to someone who has created jobs and grown a business,” added Collins. “America has the potential to once again become the land of opportunity. Donald Trump understands the importance of American exceptionalism, and has the unique qualifications to make America great again.”
Collins called the endorsement a call for an “end to business as usual.”
