When former President Donald Trump meets Texas officials at the border tomorrow, a Louisiana Congressman will be there.

Earlier this month, Trump announced that he would be joining Texas Gov. Greg Abbott at the border on June 30. Trump made the announcement via the emails he sends out, now that he has been banned from social media platforms.

"I have accepted the invitation of Texas Governor Greg Abbott to join him on an official visit to our Nation’s decimated Southern Border on Wednesday, June 30, 2021," Trump wrote.
