Congressman: President Trump to Return to West Virginia


West Virginia Republican Congressman Evan Jenkins said President Donald Trump will visit West Virginia for the second time this year.

Jenkins said he’ll join the president for a scheduled roundtable in Greenbrier County on Thursday, April 5. A statement released by Jenkins’ office didn’t disclose the location or reason for the president’s visit.

Jenkins said the visit will highlight the president’s “work to create jobs and opportunities for West Virginians and all Americans.”

In early February, Trump spoke at the House and Senate Republicans’ annual legislative retreat at the Greenbrier resort.

Jenkins, who is running for the U.S. Senate seat held by Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, said this will be the Republican president’s fourth visit to his district in southern West Virginia.
