Trump Jr was reportedly in Louisiana to support Attorney General Jeff Landry’s hunting fundraiser, and spoke onstage to members of the “Trump train.”
“It’s an honor to be here and I’m excited to go get a big gator,” Trump Jr said, before hunting gators with Rep. Steve Scalise while wearing a camo “Trump” hat.
