Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) criticized Democratic members of the House of Representatives who are skipping the inauguration of Donald Trump on CNN’s New Day Thursday.
“If we can’t show an orderly transfer and respect for this process that we have, which is unlike any in the world, then that should give you pause,” Manchin told New Day host Alisyn Camerota.
“The person I voted for doesn’t always get elected. Once the process is over, that’s the person I’m going to work with,” Manchin said, making it clear he would work with President-elect Donald Trump.
Manchin continually emphasized the importance of working with the president, saying: “If you want to get something done and continue to be the hope of the world, you better” work with the president-elect.
The West Virginia senator wrapped up his comments on inauguration-skipping Democrats by saying politicians who only complain “aren’t doing, really, the job you were sent here to do.”
Camerota pointed out that one in four House Democrats will skip Trump’s inauguration.
