And it wasn’t just his words. His actions since Election Day will be judged harshly by history.’ [emphasis added]

“‘It’s deeply disappointing,’ she continued. ‘And it’s a real shame, because I am one who believes our country made some truly extraordinary gains in the last four years. President Trump and Republicans deserve great credit for that,’ she said, according to excerpts. ‘We should not shy away from our accomplishments.’
