Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) said Sunday that Donald Trump has helped draw attention to recovery efforts after the recent devastating floods in his state.
In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” the governor downplayed critical remarks he made before the Republican presidential nominee visited his state.
“I didn’t dismiss his trip as a photo-op. Before he came down, I said we welcome him here, we want him to be helpful,” Edwards said. “And we hope that it doesn’t turn into a mere photo-op.”
Edwards said Trump’s visit to the state was positive for Louisiana.
“Because it helped to shine a spotlight on Louisiana and on the dire situation that we have here, that it was helpful,” he said.
