WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Evan Jenkins (R-W.Va.) met with President Trump on Air Force One on Monday night to discuss how to bring more jobs to West Virginia and grow our state’s economy.
“President Trump invited me to join him for the entire flight back on Air Force One, and I appreciated his willingness to discuss how we can work together to create more jobs and opportunities for West Virginians. Over a meatloaf dinner (his recommendation), I shared with him stories of how West Virginia suffered during the previous eight years and how much I appreciate the President’s support to help our state reach our true potential,” Jenkins said.
“President Trump clearly believes in putting Americans back to work, including supporting coal and manufacturing jobs. He knows the challenges West Virginia faces but believes, like I do, that our state’s best days lie ahead. I want to thank him for his time and his support for our great state, and I look forward to continuing to support his policies and vision for making America – and West Virginia – great again,” Jenkins said.
Jenkins joined the president for the flight back to Washington after the president’s speech to Boy Scouts at the National Jamboree in West Virginia.
