We were able to reach Congressman Kevin Cramer over the phone. He had the following statement on President Donald Trump’s upcoming visit to Bismarck, Mandan:
“It’s a testimony to how important North Dakota was to Donald Trump as a candidate and how important it is to his energy policies as a President.
As you know he gave his first major energy policy speech in Bismarck as a candidate and of course that helped elevate our state and it’s important and it elevated Donald Trump. It also helped shape his position on energy matters. It helped put him in the White House and now, of course with the very important issue of tax reform in front of us and a very high priority for the president and a very high priority for republicans in congress, he’s chosen the state of North Dakota to make the point directly to the grass roots. I can’t think of any better people to make the point to and serve as a back drop than people in Bismarck and Mandan.”
