President Donald Trump announced Wednesday on Twitter the Texarkana Regional Airport will get a federal grant to upgrade its terminal building.

“Texarkana Regional Airport has a major grant coming its way from @USDOT,” Trump wrote. “I’m designated $3.6 million to reconstruct its terminal building, in addition to 5 more airport grants around the State. Glad to help the people of Arkansas!”

The president is in Midland, Texas, to visit a Double Eagle Energy owned oil rig and speak on the U.S.’s energy dominance via cutting regulations.
