Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX) of Denton County, Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade, issued the following statement regarding comments made by presidential candidate Donald Trump in 2005:

“When I heard of the comments made by Mr. Trump in 2005, I was distressed. I cannot condone nor defend these remarks. However as Mr. Trump stated, this campaign has changed him as a candidate and a man and this election needs to be about which candidate will advance our conservative principles. Based on comments made by Hillary Clinton in paid speeches, there is no doubt Mr. Trump remains the best candidate for President. Saturday morning I was contacted by a constituent. Her observation: ‘A vote for Trump is not to condone his behavior, but to preserve what little freedom we have left in America.’ I could not agree more.”
