Meadows Won’t Seek Reelection, Says His Work With Trump “Is Only Beginning”
Chairman of the House Freedom Caucus Mark Meadows (R-NC) announced today he will not seek reelection, however, he hinted that he will continue to work with President Trump and his administration in some capacity.
In a statement released today, Meadows writes, “This was a decision I struggled with greatly. These last 8 years, I have been so blessed to serve the people of NC-11 and help give a voice to millions of Americans who feel Washington, D.C. has forgotten them.”
Meadows said his work with President Trump and his administration “is only beginning” and praised the commander in chief for all of his accomplishments over the past three years.
“I’m fully committed to staying in the fight with him and his team to build on those successes and deliver on his promises for the years to come,” he states.
“I’ve always said Congress is a temporary job, but the fight to return Washington, DC to its rightful owner, We The People, has only just begun.”
Meadows has been a staunch supporter of President Trump and his presence in Congress will surely be missed.
Yesterday, just before the House Democrats held their sham vote to impeach President Trump, Meadows blasted his colleagues in a fiery speech for disenfranchising the 63 million Americans who voted for the president.
“My colleagues opposite want the Americans people to think this is a sad and somber day,” he said. “Well this is a sad day. It’s a sad day for this institution because we’ve lowered the bar to impeach a president that continues to give us an economy that not only is growing, but growing at levels we have never seen in the history of our country. When we look at unemployment at a level that is truly remarkable, they want to impeach.”
He continues, “But it’s another sad day because now what they’re doing is they’re telling the American people that 233 Democrats deserve to decide who the President of the United States should be and disenfranchise 63 million voters. When all is said and done. When the history of this impeachment is written, it will be said that my Washington Democrat friends couldn’t bring themselves to work with Donald Trump so they consoled themselves instead by silencing the will of those who did, the American people.”
