Sen. Manchin releases statement after meeting with Trump
WASHINGTON (WSAZ) -- West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin has released a statement after a meeting with President-elect Donald Trump last week.
Sen. Manchin was mentioned in a New York Times article to be a candidate for Secretary of State.
The statement says:
"Last week, President-elect Trump and I had a wide-ranging and constructive conversation about the future of our country and how we can work together to help the state of West Virginia. I was humbled and honored to share my views with the President-elect and assured him that I am willing to work in a bipartisan manner to find commonsense solutions to the serious challenges we face. I have always believed that public officials must put their state and country first and set aside partisan politics to do what’s right for the people they serve. It is why I truly look forward to continuing the conversation with President-elect Trump later this week on how we can work together to make that happen."
