BOSSIER CITY, La. (KTAL/KMSS) — President Donald Trump’s son, Donalt Trump Jr., made an appearance at a Republican party fundraiser at a restaurant in Bossier City Wednesday night.
The fundraiser was held at the Silver Star Smokehouse. Trump supporters reportedly paid anywhere from $1,500 to $50,000 for a seat at the table.
Hundreds of people were expected to attend, including members of the local woman’s Republican club.
“Louisiana is already a very red state and of course Bossier Parish is far more red than Caddo Parish, but I think Donald Trump Jr. coming to our area recognizes that the conservative voters here in Louisiana—in Northwest Louisiana, are very strong and alive and I think that’s one of the reasons why he’s here tonight is to energize that base to let them know that his father has not forgotten about them,” said Louis Avallone with the local Republican Party.
Donald Trump, Jr. has been traveling all over the United States for Republican party campaign fundraisers.
