Vicksburg Mayor Meets With President Donal Trump

WASHINGTON, DC (Ben Caxton) — Vicksburg’s Mayor George Flaggs Jr. was one of a handful of Mississippi mayors personally invited by the White House to meet with President Donald Trump Wednesday. Flag told the Vicksburg Post newspaper that the meeting was “very productive” and believes it will help the city acquire funding for infrastructure needs in the future. He said the meeting focused on working with local governments to help with funding for infrastructure and bridges. And Flagg came prepared, bringing a list of the city’s projects to give Trump an idea of what the city is trying to do. The meeting also included the mayors of Meridian, Crystal Springs, and Gulfport. Flagg said the meeting was separate from another meeting the president had with members of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, which was reportedly boycotted by New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and several others over disagreements with the president’s sanctuary cities policy.
