Burgum shows his anti-Trump side in State of the State


FARGO — Gov. Doug Burgum spoke for about 34 minutes in his inaugural State of the State address to the North Dakota Legislature on Tuesday, Jan. 3. He covered some things you'd expect him to cover, including lowering property taxes (blah), re-inventing state government (blah, blah), and making downtowns walkable and attractive to talented young people (blah, blah, blah).

These are the ways he's going to Make North Dakota Great Again, to cop a line from the presidential candidate Burgum strongly backed in the November election. Donald Trump garnered 63 percent of the vote in the state, showing how wise Burgum was to back the Republican horse he backed. It also shows Burgum probably had some pretty good polling to indicate which horse he should back.

All of those items Burgum checked off his to-do list were things on which he campaigned. He will do his best to see them through.
