OTTAWA – Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies MP, Bob Zimmer has extended congratulations to President-elect Donald Trump following his surprise and hard earned victory in yesterday’s U.S. Presidential election.
Mr. Zimmer has also offered his congratulations to House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell, noting the Republicans also retained control of both the House of Representatives and Senate. This means that for the first time since 1928 the GOP will control both the executive and legislative branches of the U.S. government.
Since being elected in 2011 Mr. Zimmer has been actively working with his American counterparts on important issues such as our trade partnerships, the keystone pipeline, as well as fostering good working relationships with US Senators and Congressman.
“I look forward to working with President-elect Trump and his government as we facilitate trade deals that will be mutually beneficial for both countries. Also, as Official Critic for the Asia-Pacific Gateway and Corridor Initiative, I will be stressing the importance of the Keystone Pipeline as mutually beneficial for us both,” said Mr. Zimmer.
On January 20, 2017, Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States.
