Congressman John Katko will be supporting President Donald Trump in the 2020 election.

Katko released a statement Thursday announcing his backing of President Trump. In the statement, Katko mentioned the booming economy, improved trade with other nations, and national security.

“As much as I am sometimes frustrated by the President's approach, I believe our country is in a better place today than it was four years ago,” Katko said in his statement. “We cannot afford the extreme policies being championed by the left, which would result in higher taxes for every American and a guaranteed debt crisis for our country.  Given this choice, I will support President Trump this November.”

Katko went on to say that it was not “a blanket endorsement” for President Trump. The congressman did not endorse Trump in the 2016 election.

“I will continue, as I always have, to be a vocal check on the President when I disagree with his rhetoric and with policy decisions that are not in the best interest of Central New York,” said Katko.
