Trump to Stay at Waikiki Hotel Friday

Update from Washington, D.C.

From Hawaii Republican Party Oct 31, 2017

Aloha Hawaii Republicans! 

I have fielded dozens of questions over the past week about our plans to greet President Trump when he stops in Hawaii during his historic trip to Asia, so I wanted to personally send you an update.

Earlier today, in Washington, D.C., I met with key White House staffers and was briefed about the President’s schedule when he visits this week.  As you would expect, the President will be on a very tight schedule to include intelligence briefings with Generals and Admirals in the US Pacific Command, a visit to the USS Arizona Memorial to pay his respects and a tour of Pearl Harbor.

I know many of us are so eager to show President Trump that he has support in Hawaii and would like to meet him, but his schedule and detail movement, while staying in Waikiki, will be extremely limitedMore importantly, I was advised that his visit would be non-political in nature, and therefore, not the appropriate time for a rally or organized reception.

His staff assured me, however, that the President is aware of the political climate here in Hawaii and that they are watching with great enthusiasm, our efforts to rebuild and strengthen our party as we work to recruit candidates to win races in 2018.  So, while we are unable to show our support with a rally while he is here, I was grateful for the opportunity to represent our party to his team and express to them how proud we are of his leadership.

Like you, I look forward to the outcome of the President’s historic visit to Asia and to Hawaii. 

With Warmest Aloha,

Shirlene Ostrov, Chairman
