Donald Trump is scheduled to hold a campaign rally next Wednesday in Nashville. Trump will speak Wednesday evening at 6:30pm at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium, according to an event schedule on the Trump campaign website.
Sean Spicer confirmed to reporters that Trump would be “traveling next week,” referring questions Thursday about any Nashville event to the campaign.
Nashville Mayor Megan Barry, who said she had “heard only the rumors” of the event, spoke with the president on the phone in January and said her focus remains on infrastructure spending, according to The Tennessean.
“My message is still the same, infrastructure for Tennesseans and if we can have some of that [$1 trillion] that he wants to spend on infrastructure and transit bring it our way please.”
According to The Tennessean, protests are being planned in advance of the president’s visit.
Trump similarly held a campaign-style rally in Florida last month, where he railed on the media and vowed to achieve his legislative agenda despite the “lies, misrepresentations and false stories.”
