ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) – After touring the Stateline on Wednesday, Adam Kinzinger is now on his way to Washington for President-elect Trump’s inauguration speech.
Kinzinger first headed to Supplycore in downtown Rockford and then to the Stone Wall Café in Pecatonica to speak to the Rotary Club.
Kinzinger says he is excited about Trump’s plan for the first 100 days, believing Trump’s first moves will be towards strengthening the business community. He says he supports Trump’s picks for his cabinet because Trump chooses people who aren’t afraid to tell him when they disagree. Even though Kinzinger is a Republican, he say she will not support Trump on every issue, however he believes the biggest focus of Trump’s speech and his administration should be unity.
"It's really the job of a brand new administration to do their best to bring people together. And I hope that after this speech. The Democrats are not starting out on the right foot, not going to the inauguration sends a very bad message, it's their right as Americans not to do it. And after this speech people get an idea of the new blood that we need in DC that he's going to bring,” says Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R) 16th District.
Kinzinger says he believes the United States has a responsibility as world leaders to work with our allies to make changes instead of isolating ourselves.
