The Washington Times Daily - - METRO - — S.A. Miller

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser emerged Tues­day from a meet­ing with Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump in New York City and de­clared he will be a friend to Wash­ing­ton, but she wouldn’t say if he sup­ports D.C. state­hood.

State­hood did come up dur­ing their meet­ing at Trump Tower, she said.

“We talked about the things that are im­por­tant to Wash­ing­to­ni­ans, and cer­tainly be­com­ing the 51st state is one of them,” she told re­porters.

Mr. Trump demon­strated a sin­cere com­mit­ment to the city, she said.

“Ac­tu­ally, the one thing I know em­phat­i­cally that he said is that he is a sup­porter of the Dis­trict of Columbia, he’s fa­mil­iar with the Dis­trict of Columbia, and he wants to be sup­port­ive,” Miss Bowser said.
