U.S. Rep and former West Palm Beach Mayor Lois Frankel takes issue with part-time Palm Beacher Donald Trump’s Inaugural Address.

“I’m grateful to former-President Obama, who led this country through one of the most challenging times in our history and breakthroughs for human rights,” Frankel said in a statement released after the speech.

“With all due respect to President Trump, as to his inaugural remarks today, I do not share his pessimistic view of America or his bias towards extreme nationalism. We are a nation of opportunity, a country that cherishes diversity and the leader of the free world.

“With that said, I am prepared to work cooperatively with the new administration where possible and be a force of resistance when necessary.”
