Reschenthaler Introduces Bill to Rename the Washington Dulles International Airport as the Donald J. Trump International Airport

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Chief Deputy Whip Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) introduced H.R. 7845, legislation to honor our nation’s 45th president by renaming the Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia as the Donald J. Trump International Airport.

Trump,” said Reschenthaler. “As millions of domestic and international travelers fly through the airport, there is no better symbol of freedom, prosperity, and strength than hearing ‘Welcome to Trump International Airport’ as they land on American soil.”
Reschenthaler is joined in this legislation by Congressmen Chuck Fleischmann (R-TN), Paul Gosar, D.D.S. (R-AZ), Troy Nehls (R-TX), Andy Ogles (R-TN), Barry Moore (R-AL), and Mike Waltz (R-FL).
