Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant, along with five other republican governors, met with presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump at Trump Tower in New York City on Tuesday.
The meeting focused on Trump’s plans as the nominee and as the future President of the United States….
…“We talked about national security, obviously, with the tragedy in Orlando,” said Gov. Bryant. “We talked about the economy, military preparedness, and many things that would concern governors during what I think was a very productive meeting here in New York.”
Governor Bryant said that he and the other governors would serve as surrogates for the Trump campaign in their home states and would represent Trump at various campaign events. He added that if Trump took the presidency, he would do well not just for the nation, but for Mississippi.
“Trump understands the economy,” said Governor Bryant. “He understands the feds could prop up the economy by increasing interest rates… that’s important that we have someone who’s going to turn this economy around and create jobs.”
