Donald Trump Jr. — the president’s son — on Thursday wished Utahns and Latter-day Saints a happy Pioneer Day while trumpeting that is father is a pioneer, too, The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

“While in Washington, D.C., they may call people like my father and myself outsiders, here in the West they actually call them pioneers,” he said in a call to regional reporters. “Pioneers are people who embody the innovative spirit, curiosity and optimism that is uniquely American.”

While he honored pioneers briefly, Trump Jr. also made clear that his media call aimed mostly to seek national support from members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
