Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry is part of a group that met with President Donald Trump on Tuesday ahead of his first address before a joint session of Congress.
"It was an honor to meet with President Trump again," Landry said Tuesday evening. "I appreciate the President's willingness to meet with our states' top law enforcement officers. His administration is clearly making public safety and the rule of law top priorities; and we are grateful for that."
Trump took a photo Tuesday morning with the attorneys general, who are in Washington, D.C. this week for the National Association of Attorneys General winter meeting. He later had a closed-to-the-press meeting with them.
"Some great people, some great people," Trump said to the group of about 25 attorneys general, including Landry.
Landry, a Republican who took office last year, is also planning to attend the president's address to Congress this evening, according to the AG's office.
Landry is vice president of the NAAG.
Since Monday, the group has been holding meetings on topics like health care fraud, consumer protection and other topics related to the state office.
Gov. John Bel Edwards, in Washington for the National Governors Association's winter meeting, met with Trump on Monday.
