DC mayor to meet with Trump at her request

WASHINGTON — D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser is scheduled to meet with President-elect Donald Trump.

LaToya Foster, a spokeswoman for Bowser, said the mayor will meet with Trump, at her request. Foster says the issues on the agenda are public safety, education, unemployment, infrastructure and D.C. statehood.

Bowser, a Democrat, has noted that 93 percent of District residents voted for candidates other than Trump, and that “some mending of relationships” is needed.

Bowser skipped the highly publicized grand opening of Trump’s hotel.
