Missouri Governor Mike Parson Meets with President Trump

WASHINGTON -- Governor Parson met with cabinet members on Capitol Hill today, as well as President Donald Trump.

The Governor says building relationships is the key to success and he plans to do so early on.

He addressed the opioid problem, workforce development, and infrastructure.

"We just can't keep kicking the can down the road as far as infrastructure goes. We really have to step up ourselves and I think that's what we're supposed to be doing as Missourians - to try to take care of our own problems as we can and this is an opportunity to do it. So, hopefully the people will understand that and I hope they support it," Parson says. 

Parson also commented on how Missouri will continue to help with the ongoing border patrol situation, saying Missouri will continue to provide resources for the sole purpose of securing the border.
