GOVERNOR MICHAEL DUNLEAVY BROUGHT TWO WITH HIM
It wasn’t just Gov. Michael Dunleavy who dropped by JBER to say hello to President Donald Trump on Wednesday, as Trump traveled through Anchorage on his way to Japan and the G20 Summit.
That’s Gov. Dunleavy’s wife First Lady Rose Dunleavy and the couple’s daughter Maggie on the tarmac in the photo above, watching Air Force One position itself.
The governor of Alaska and his family boarded the plane and spoke with the president for several minutes. It’s safe to say that this is the first time an Inupiaq Alaskan from Noorvik has boarded Air Force One. Rose Dunleavy was raised in the Arctic village, which is a snowmachine ride away from Kotzebue.
And since you asked, yes, both Alaska’s First Lady Rose and daughter Maggie wore traditional kuspuks to meet the president, who had invited the two to come along with the governor. This is Dunleavy’s fourth meeting with Trump since the governor was sworn into office in December.
