The President will discuss LNG facilities as they relate to domestic job creation and energy infrastructure, according to a White House official.
The White House says LNG export facilities like Cameron generate billions of dollars in investments, create thousands of jobs, support domestic energy production, and position America to be the dominant energy exporting country globally.
Pres. Trump’s visit follows two executive orders he signed in Houston on April 10 “to remove barriers to new energy infrastructure,” according to the White House.
The visit to LNG will be followed by a private campaign fundraiser in New Orleans. According to The Advocate, the dinner will cost $2,800 to attend. $35,000 gets you a photo with the president. $100,000 gets you "roundtable" access with Trump.
This is the President’s third trip to Louisiana since inauguration.
