Senator Heitkamp Expresses Concerns to President Obama

Posted: Updated:
After a highly planned landing in Bismarck on Air Force One, President Barrack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama along with Senator Heidi Heitkamp, took a chopper to the Standing Rock Reservation in Cannon Ball Friday afternoon. 

Senator Heitkamp says it was an amazing experience to be able to brag about how great the state of North Dakota is to the president. And she says he was definitely able to see all the beauty that North Dakota has to offer. 
"When you look at North Dakota, you realize that we are fundamentally still very agricultural based, we're very rural," says Senator Heidi Heitkamp. "And I had a chance to talk to him about housing concerns. I had a chance to talk to him about the explosion of our population because of oil, but also because of other things that we're doing. And then, to put a pitch in to see cooperation on Native American vet issues and Native American children. "

She says her and the president don't agree on everything. But one thing they do agree on is focusing on the nation's children. The President and the First Lady visited with a group of young Native Americans during their time in Cannonball. The President says while he only spent an hour with the youth, he fell in love with them. And he says the community should be proud of their children.
