Texas Mayor: Dems Who Boycotted Meeting With Trump 'Missed an Opportunity'
A Texas mayor said many Democratic mayors across the country "missed an opportunity" by skipping a meeting with President Donald Trump at the White House on Wednesday.
Several Democrats, including New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock and New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, boycotted the scheduled event over the administration's most recent crackdown on sanctuary cities.
George Fuller, mayor of McKinney, Texas, said on "Fox & Friends" that they gave up a key chance to talk to the president about infrastructure and their communities' needs.
"It was an opportunity for us to air our grievances and just talk about future plans with the trillion dollars coming for infrastructure in this country and how our cities could benefit," Fuller said. "It was a meeting well worth having."
He said that the Democratic mayors who skipped the event missed their chance to be heard and have a meaningful dialogue with the president.
"I think that's what was missed by those who didn't attend," Fuller said. "Missing an opportunity to represent your community and to be heard on issues that are important to your community, just not something that I feel would have been prudent for me, and certainly I question those that did."
