At a press conference Thursday Gov. Greg Gianforte presented his state budget for the coming biennium which includes $100 million in reduced government spending, and addressed the attempted insurrection at the Capitol Building by Pro-Trump protesters earlier this week.
"Yesterday was a sad, sad day for America," Gianforte said, " ... our very democracy was under siege."
Gianforte condemned the attack on the capitol, and said watching it was a surreal and jarring experience, having been a congressman only a few weeks ago.
He asked people to pray for Montana and the country.
