The first two women met for a few minutes on a Byden plane before being greeted by Mayor GT Bynum of Tulsa on Friday afternoon.

Stitt met former First Lady Melania Trump on one of her visits in the previous administration.

“At any point in my life, I didn’t expect the little girl who grew up here in Tulsa to have that opportunity, so it’s actually very moving,” says Stitt.

“When I was driving here, I couldn’t imagine meeting two incumbent presidents, two first ladies. It’s an honor.”
