WASHINGTON – Rep. Dana Rohrabacher on Tuesday met with President Trump and senior White House aides for a wide-ranging discussion on foreign and domestic issues. The discussion, which lasted approximately 45 minutes, was arranged at the President’s invitation and included White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Senior Strategist Steve Bannon.

“The President asked searching questions and clearly demonstrated he was in command and ready to push his positive agenda for America,” said the California Republican, who once worked as a Special Assistant to President Ronald Reagan.

“He was especially keen on my proposal to create a new visa program that would help finance the border wall and protect our country’s sovereign territory by charging wealthy foreigners to become citizens of the United States.”

Rohrabacher also emphasized his bill to expand employee ownership of companies as part of an expected tax reform package as well as his plan to create tax incentives for commercial space enterprises.

The meeting also dealt with combatting Islamist terrorism by forging alliances with countries that, like the United States, are menaced by this greatest of global threats.

“Having worked with Ronald Reagan and sat with him in that very same Oval Office,” said Rohrabacher, “I was deeply impressed with President Trump’s grasp of the challenges we face.”
