BISMARCK, N.D. - Air Force One touched down a bit early, but the president made up for that by shaking hands with the hundred or so people who were allowed onto the tarmac.
"It's been an exciting day in North Dakota, as President Donald Trump made his second trip to North Dakota - first time as President. This time, he talked about tax reform," said reporter Kristin Goodspeed.
A smaller version of Air Force One touched down around 2:35 p.m., and on board with the President, was North Dakota's delegation.
"Well I know Congressman Cramer, and he's going to do everything he can to support the President. And it sounds like Senator Hoeven as well. I don't know where Senator Heitkamp stands on it, but President Trump has alot of North Dakota support, and that's a good thing," said Nolan Canright from Bismarck.
"I've been on his team ever since he came down the escalator on June 15, 2015. I was standing in my living room and I jumped for joy, because I knew he could do it," said Sharon Ronning from Bismarck.
"Really neat to see him here. We were out at inauguration as well, and I tell you what, the environment in a little tiny atmosphere was amazing," said Canright.
"He wants to work for the American people. he wants to make America great again, so let's go," said Claudia Tauer-Stromberg from Bismarck.
"Tax reform was one of President Trump's big campaign promises, and now that Congress is back in Washington, D.C. for the fall session, it's one of their top priorities," said Goodspeed.
The president spent a good ten minutes on the ground at the airport before boarding his limousine for the trip to Mandan.
