Donald Trump Jr. campaigns for Kris Kobach in Wichita


Three weeks from Tuesday, Kansans will be heading to the polls to cast their vote in the primary election.

One of the most contentious races is the race for governor.

Fourteen people are vying for the state’s top spot, including seven republicans, five democrats and two independents.

President Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., was in Wichita Tuesday night, campaigning for Republican Kris Kobach.

Donald Trump Jr. got there a little late because of a flight delay out of New York. 

But once he got there, he spoke on a variety of topics, including the president’s recent visit with NATO.  

“My father said wait a minute,” said Donald Trump Jr. “So Germany has 30 percent less than 30 percent of their military is actually functional. So they have a 100 planes, 33 of them work. Maybe, if that. They have 200 tanks. Sixty of them work. So, we’re paying billions into NATO. Other countries don’t want to pay their fair share. Then Germany says, Russia, who you’re protecting us from, well we’re going to buy all your natural gas.”

From foreign relations to employment, Donald Trump Jr. had a lot to say.

“We’re Republican, but who’s done more union work than Trump as a builder?” he said. “So, he understands. He knows those guys. He’s worked with them. And so again, look at the job numbers. Look at the employment numbers. Look at where wages are going.”

But it wasn’t all about politics, Donald Trump Jr. also discussed the president’s love of Twitter.

“I guess as he started getting increasingly more and more fed up with what was going on in the country, it was a great platform to be able to express some of that,” he said. “And, I think the sentiment held.”

This isn’t the first time he has campaigned for Kobach. 

He also went to an event in Overland Park back in November.
