Congressman Collins endorses Trump for president
Press Release, Congressman Chris Collins
CLARENCE – Calling for an “end to business as usual” in Washington, Congressman Chris Collins (NY-27) today announced that he is endorsing Donald Trump for president.
“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,” Collins said. “That is why I am proud to endorse him as the next President of the United States.”
“The results of Barack Obama’s failed presidency have been devastating. America is no longer seen as the world’s leader. Our jobs are gone. Our middle class is struggling. And, the federal government has grown too large and wastes too much of our hard earned money,” added Collins. “The last thing we need is a third Obama term which we would get with either Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders.”
“We need a president willing to make the tough decisions necessary to restore our country to greatness. I believe Donald Trump is the man for the job, and I am proud to provide him with my support.”
Both Trump and Collins share a strong private sector background. Before entering public service, Collins was in the private sector for over 35 years where he built a successful career as a businessman and entrepreneur.
Both as an Erie Country Executive and a member of Congress, Collins has advocated running 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,” Collins said. “Donald Trump understands the importance of American exceptionalism, and has the unique qualifications to make America great again.”
