WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Donald J. Trump met with Kevin Stitt and other governors-elect today in the Cabinet Room of the White House.

The meeting was to discuss shared State-Federal priorities including workforce development, improving infrastructure, supporting veterans and military families, Opportunity Zones, and combating the opioid crisis.

“It was an honor to join a bipartisan group of governor-elects and represent Oklahoma in a meeting with President Trump. I shared with the President about how his tax cuts and deregulation agenda is helping Oklahoma’s economy and how my administration will be focused on leveraging these federal accomplishments to grow and diversify our great state. I also met with the Secretary of Commerce where we discussed ways to better utilize the Port of Catoosa and we discussed methods for leveraging our state’s Federal Opportunity Zones. My time at the White House concluded by meeting with the Ambassador of Trade where I expressed my priority to increase exports of Oklahoma agriculture products and pursue larger international markets as we set our sights on expanding Oklahoma’s presence in the global marketplace,” said Governor-elect Kevin Stitt.
