Castro Urges HUD to Assist with Trump Transition

Former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro is encouraging the Department of Housing and Urban Development to welcome and help usher in the Trump Administration.

The now HUD Secretary has taken that stance–after lamenting the results of the vote that will put Donald Trump in the White House in January.

“Unfortunately, I think in frustration… the voters have handed over the Presidency to someone who even 61% of folks in an exit poll (on Election Day) believed was not qualified to be President” Castro told CBS the Morning after it was clear Trump would be the winner.

While his opinion of Trump hasn’t changed, Castro said it is time to move on.

“I do think it’s up to all of us as Americans to do what we can to unite the country… and, it’s up to him more than anyone to make sure he approaches the Presidency differently from how he approached the Campaign” Castro said, adding “You hope that folks are not drunk with their own power.
