The son of President Donald Trump came to Billings this weekend.

Donald Trump Jr. spoke in support of Republican Congressional candidates at the Billings Hotel & Convention Center on Friday night.

About 350 greeted Donald Trump Jr.

He talked about President Trump and foreign relations, starting with North Korea and its leader Kim Jong Un.

"I’m watching these pundits,” Trump Jr. said. “’Well I’ve been negotiating on the North Korea for 40 years.’ You haven’t gotten a meeting. Well guess what, we did because you have a leader that actually has resolve. That actually stands up for what you believe in. that will actually fight."

Trump, Jr. then talked about the U.S. moving its embassy in Israel to the country’s capital city of Jerusalem.

"Every president has promised this in my lifetime,” Trump Jr. said. “No one else did it. Why? ‘Because the world’s going to collapse, there’s going to be war.’ Guess what happened? Nothing. But you had some one who actually had the guts to do what’s right.”

The president’s son then talked about some of the analysis of illegal immigration.

"Pundits that are representing and speaking to millions of people on a daily basis,” he said. “They’re more concerned about the feelings of people in far off lands. and we’re sitting there. We’re more concerned about their feelings than we are about the safety and well being of our kids and grand kids? Not on my watch and certainly not on my father’s."

President Trump’s son spoke in support of Republican Matt Rosendale for U.S. Senate race against incumbent Democrat Jon Tester.

Trump Jr. was also here for incumbent Congressman Greg Gianforte in the House race against Democrat Kathleen Williams, a former state Legislator.
