One year after election: Governor Bryant discusses his friendship with President Trump – Jackson, MS

“Looking back at a year ago when President Trump was elected and today, it’s been a remarkable year with someone I consider a good friend,” explained Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant.

While Governor Bryant did campaign for Trump ahead of election day, he expected his interactions with him would be limited after that.

“It would’ve been difficult for me to accept it if someone had said I would be interacting with the President of United States discussing policy but also having access to the Vice President, for example. Mike Pence and I are very good friends,” added Bryant.

That budding friendship has proven beneficial for the state.
