Senator Joe Donnelly met with the President Thursday night to discuss a number of issues.

In a statement last night, Donnelly says they had a good conversation, touching on the Supreme Court vacancy, their mutual work on the recent Right To Try Law, and the impact of the administration’s trade policies on Indiana steel, manufacturing, and agriculture.

He also spoke about their shared desire to “crack down on bad actors,” such as China, that seek to take advantage of the US in economic matters.

Donnelly also said that he will consider carefully any nominee the president puts forward for the Supreme Court in the near future. He was one of two Democrats to vote yes to confirm Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court last year.

Like Donnelly, those other two Democrats, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota also face difficult re-elections this November in GOP-dominated states.
