Trump Jr. Launches Native Americans For Trump Coalition In Arizona

On Thursday, President Donald Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., joined Navajo Nation Vice President Myron Lizer at a rally in Williams, Arizona. Members of multiple tribal nations gathered to launch the Native Americans for Trump coalition.

The event began on a light note before the opening prayer by a Navajo Nation Chaplin from Shiprock, Arizona. “Good morning,” said the Chaplain, “Oh, it’s good afternoon… I just had a Biden moment!”

Trump Jr. was introduced by Navajo Nation Vice President Myron Lizer. Vice President Lizer, a beloved figure across Arizona, was a featured speaker at the Republican National Convention earlier this year.

“We want to bring international commerce and industry and startups to the Navajo Nation,” said Vice President Lizer of his hopes for four more years of a Trump administration. “We have the land, we have the water and we have the work force. A skilled workforce that’s willing to work hard.”

Vice President Lizer told the crowd that the COVID-19 pandemic, which has hit the Navajo Nation especially hard, has “magnified a lot of the health disparities and the lack of economic development on the Navajo Nation.”

In May, President Trump, Vice President Lizer and Gila River Governor Stephen Lewis and Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia participated in a roundtable discussion about COVID-19 and funding to battle the pandemic.

In November 2019, Vice President Lizer and Second Lady Dottie Lizer joined President Donald Trump in the Oval Office, for the signing the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Persons Executive Order.
