• Mary Fallin meets with Donald Trump

    Updated:

    Mary Fallin met with Donald Trump on Tuesday afternoon.

    Fallin met with the candidate among a group of five other governors.

    The Oklahoma governor released a statement on the meeting Tuesday evening:

    “The meeting went very well. It was an opportunity for Donald Trump to hear from the governors and for the governors to talk with their political party’s presumptive presidential nominee. We discussed several issues, such as jobs and the economy, and what we as governors have done to improve the business climates in our states. Also, in the aftermath of a horrific attack upon our fellow Americans in Orlando, we discussed the importance of strengthening national security and building a stronger national defense. We shared a common concern for the need for more thorough background checks on refugees to verify their identities before they are allowed to enter the United States. And we also agreed that the Obama administration during the past eight years has over-reached by passing cumbersome regulations that amount to a power grab that hurt state economies and destroy jobs.”
