Gov. Rick Scott had lunch Thursday with President Donald Trump, the latest in a series of get togethers between the political allies.
The White House schedule showed a 1 p.m. meal at Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster, N.J.
John Tupps, a spokesman for the governor, said: “Governor Scott had lunch today with President Trump following an invitation from the White House last week. Governor Scott was solely there to promote Florida. They discussed a wide range of topics including the President’s commitment to partner with Florida on needed repairs to the federally-operated Herbert Hoover Dike at Lake Okeechobee. Governor Scott wants to do all he can to protect Florida’s environment and President Trump is very supportive to help. Additionally, they discussed the terror attack in Barcelona and the efforts President Trump is taking to keep America safe.”
Tupps said the racial violence in Charlottesville and debate over Confederate monuments did not come up.
