Its a remarkable event that a presidential candidate, whether you like him or not,  is going to speak in Bismarck at the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference later this month.

Ron Ness of the North Dakota Petroleum Council said he is excited to host the presidential front runners at the three-day day event to talk to oil industry workers and officials about issues important to them. The conference begins May 24. Trump’s appearance will be part of the annual conference, but there will also be tickets made available to the general public.

“I’m hoping now that he focuses now on more policy-driven issues rather than the combative nature of multiple candidates vying for the nomination,” said Ron Ness, president of the North Dakota Petroleum Council.

Trump will speak at 1 p.m. Thursday, May 26, at the Bismarck Event Center. “Our timing’s just right with him clearly going to be one of the next two people that’s likely to be president,” Ness said. “The ability to get him to North Dakota and maybe talk about North Dakota issues is a rare opportunity, so we’re thrilled for the chance and excited to make it happen.” Those in the oil industry would like to hear Trump talk about his energy policy. Ness said the industry group has not reached out to Democratic presidential candidates, but the conference would make room for them, too, if any contenders were interested.

One thing about Trump… he is no way indifferent. Many people love him, many others hate him. We are not here to discuss politics. However, the fact that he is approaching our industry could definitively affect oil job creation if he gets to the white house. What are your thoughts about this?
