Local Lawmakers React to Governor Justice’s Invite to President Trump

Local News

On Wednesday Governor Jim Justice announced he had extended an invitation to President Trump to give the State of the Union at the West Virginia State Capitol.

“I called the President yesterday to convey our invitation for him to come to West Virginia to give the State of the Union Address in our State Capitol. Giving the speech in a state full of people who love their country would truly reflect his focus on the forgotten men and women of America,” said Gov. Justice.

West Virginia joins other states like Ohio who have invited the President to give the State of the Union. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has rescinded the President’s invitation for the State of the Union as of Wednesday.

“I don’t know of any constitution impediment to Uncle Donald, as we call him in my house coming to West Virginia to give the address,” said State Sen. Charles Trump, R-Morgan.
