President Donald Trump will wake up back in Washington D.C. Wednesday morning after spending Tuesday in Louisiana.

The President made two stops while in the state.

First, a visit to tout his America First energy policy in Hackberry, an unincorporated Louisiana community on the Gulf Coast between New Orleans and Houston.

The president toured Sempra Energy, a facility that liquefies and exports natural gas. The company is slated to create 10,000 jobs.

While there, Trump discussed how energy infrastructure projects, such as Sempra’s, is creating American jobs.

After his visit in Cameron Parish, the president landed at Armstrong International Airport aboard Air Force One.

After meeting with a crowd of supporters, the president made his way to Old Metairie for a private, high-price campaign re-election fundraising event.

That event sat 200 people who were expected to raise an estimated $5 million for Trump and the Republican National Committee.

The visit marks Trump’s third trip to Louisiana since he took office in 2017 and his second trip this year.
