BOSTON (CBS) – Massachusetts politicians reacted Wednesday as Donald Trump left the White House for the final time as president.
Joe Biden was officially sworn in on Wednesday. Kamala Harris is the first woman to serve as vice president.
"Goodbye and good riddance Donald Trump. See you at your trial," Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey tweeted, referring to President Trump's upcoming Senate impeachment trial.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted Wednesday morning that when the Biden and Harris are sworn in, "decency and competence will be back in the White House."
Massachusetts Congressman Stephen Lynch was asked during an interview with CBSN Boston what he was most looking forward on Inauguration Day.
"To be honest with you, just to put Trump in the rear view mirror. That was a disaster," said Lynch. "The ending of his administration, if you can call it that, was I think instructive to his whole approach to government. It ended in an attack, an armed attack against the Capitol, against the government itself, which he incited. So I am just delighted to have him gone, I honestly have to say that."
Lynch added that he is excited to work with Biden, calling him a "good and decent man."
"It's going to be a fresh start. A new beginning so to speak," said Lynch.
