In May 2019, President Donald Trump visited Cameron Parish to tour Sempra Energy's $10 billion liquefied natural gas export facility and shined the spotlight on the oil and gas sector in front of a raucous crowd.

Later that year, President Trump visited Shreveport and Monroe to campaign for Republican gubernatorial candidates former U.S. Congressman Ralph Abraham and businessman Eddie Rispone as he encouraged Louisianians to vote Republican in the GOP's failed attempt to replace the incumber John Bel Edwards.

Now, Trump is headed back to the Bayou State to hold a fundraiser for his campaign to unseat President Joe Biden to become the nation's 47th President as he hopes to do something only Grover Cleveland has done: take the White House in non-consecutive terms.

The fundraiser will be on July 25th in Republican House Majority Leader Steve Scalise's backyard, Metairie. The event is hosted by President Trump's campaign and is not a LAGOP event.

Meanwhile, Trump has endorsed fellow Republican Jeff Landry in Louisiana's Governor's race.

I am endorsing your Attorney General Jeff Landry for Governor. He has been a fantastic Attorney General. He wants to stop crime. He loves the people of Louisiana just like I do.


Landry responded by saying, "I am honored to have the endorsement of President Donald Trump. And I am grateful for his kind words."
