Justice goes hunting, fishing with Trump’s son

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — Gov. Jim Justice spent a few hours hunting and fishing with Don Trump Jr. Tuesday, the governor’s office said.

Don Trump Jr. and Governor Jim Justice show off the trout they caught Tuesday.

“Don Jr. is a real hunter and a great fisherman. We share a real love of the outdoors and it was an honor to show him just a small part of the natural beauty of our state,” Justice said in a statement released by his office. “We talked about the enormous potential of West Virginia and how we have opportunities to create jobs. The Trumps care deeply about our people and I look forward to working with the White House to get federal resources here to help our state in a number of different areas.”

The son of President Donald Trump is not a member of the Trump administration.

The expedition occurred while members of governor’s administration and leaders in the House and Senate are trying to come up with a budget compromise. The special session is scheduled to resume Monday.

Justice and Trump hunted turkey and fished for trout in Monroe and Greenbrier counties. They caught a rainbow trout but came up empty in turkey hunting.
