Barletta and Marino Attend Trump National Security Meeting

Barletta-MarinoCongressmen Lou Barletta and Tom Marino were among the first members of Congress to endorse Donald Trump for President.

It appears that confidence has been returned.

According to Candy Woodall of the Patriot-News, Reps. Barletta and Marino were two of the handful of attendees of a national security meeting among the Trump campaign’s top advisors.

Retired Army Lt. Gen. Joseph “Keith” Kellogg, retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, and Sen. Jeff Sessions were all there. Trump’s new campaign CEO Stephen Bannon and campaign manager Kellyanne Conway were also present.

“Donald Trump today reinforced that ensuring the safety of the American people will be his administration’s top priority and that he has a plan to bolster our national security,” according to Rep. Barletta’s official statement. “We discussed ways to improve communication between federal and local law enforcement so that we can better detect terrorist activity, stop the flow of refugees into our country until we can be certain they do not pose a threat to American lives, and crack down on illegal immigration, including our faulty visa system. Throughout our meeting, Trump was thoughtful, deliberative, and interested in the opinions of those in attendance.”

“This is the Donald Trump I’ve been telling people about,” Barletta told Woodall. “He was very businesslike, very much the board-room Donald Trump. He was a real executive bringing others in.”

Both Barletta and Marino serve on the House Committee on Homeland Security, so it’s possible they’ll remain part of the campaign’s inner circle on this subject.

    The Tea Party might be polling at 17 percent favorability nation-wide, but it seems to be plenty popular in 10th and 11th.
