Donald Trump Jr. to host Native coalition launch

The campaign event is set to take place Thursday in Williams, Arizona

President Donald Trump’s campaign is launching the “Native Americans for Trump Coalition” on Thursday with an Arizona event featuring Donald Trump Jr. 

The gathering at the rodeo grounds in Williams, west of Flagstaff, is free to the public, and registration is required, according to coalition information online. Doors open at 12 p.m., and the event begins at 1:30 p.m. MST.

Michael Woestehoff, Navajo, who regularly blogs about gains for Indian Country during the Trump administration, indicated he will attend.

In his blog, Woestehoff writes that Native American accomplishments with Trump include creating the Presidential Task Force on Missing and Murdered American Indians and Alaska Natives; signing the Ashlynne Mike AMBER Alert in Indian Country Act; awarding over $273.4 million through the Justice Department to improve public safety and serve crime victims in American Indian and Alaska Native communities; and signing a bill into law granting federal recognition to six tribes in Virginia — the Chickahominy, Eastern Chickahominy, Upper Mattaponi, Rappahannock, Monacan and Nansemond — as well as the Montana Little Shell Tribe of Chippewa Indians.
