Van Hollen: Trump Must Reach Out to Democrats
BALTIMORE (AP) - Sen.-elect Chris Van Hollen says President-elect Donald Trump has "a great burden" to reach out to Democrats after running an "incredibly divisive campaign."
Van Hollen spoke Wednesday with Maryland Sens. Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin in Baltimore. Van Hollen won the seat that is opening with Mikulski's retirement after 30 years in the office.
Van Hollen says he doesn't know much about Trump's agenda, except that he wants to build a wall on the Mexican border and deport people who are in the country illegally. He says he's willing to work constructively, but after the billionaire's divisive campaign Trump will need to make a major step toward cooperation.
