Mississippi governor continues support for Trump

Mississippi’s governor, after serving as a campaign surrogate for Donald Trump, continues to provide high profile support for the new president.

Republican Phil Bryant is voicing support for plans to overhaul federal health care funding and to restrict immigration, and has touted his connections to the new leadership.

Last week, for example, Bryant recounted his most recent visit to the White House to radio host Paul Gallo, saying he met with Chief of Staff Reince Preibus, Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney and Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price.

“It was a rare opportunity for the governor of Mississippi to be able to talk one-on-one with the president of the United States,” Bryant said, saying it was the first time he’d been in the Oval Office since George W. Bush was president.
