Kansas Secretary Kris Kobach to Meet With President-Elect Donald Trump
Kris Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state whose hardline immigration stance has caught the attention of Donald Trump, will meet with the president-elect Sunday.
The two men will meet in Bedminster, N.J., where Trump is spending the weekend, transition spokesman Jason Miller said Saturday. Trump has been meeting with a variety of people since the election, to interview for jobs and to seek advice.
“I can confirm that he’s meeting with Trump. I do not have information about which position,” said Desiree Taliaferro, Kobach’s spokeswoman. “And Kris is unavailable for comment because he’s en route to New Jersey.”
Clay Barker, executive director of the Kansas Republican Party, said one of Trump’s campaign advisers told him Friday that “a decision about Kobach would be imminent.”
