Trump coming to Southern Nevada for rally

President Donald Trump plans to visit Las Vegas on Thursday for a “Make America Great Again” rally in advance of the November midterm elections, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

The rally is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Details, such as which Republican candidates will appear at the event, were still to being determined.

This will be Trump’s seventh rally in Las Vegas since he declared his candidacy for the presidency in June 2015.

The White House announced the campaign event after canceling scheduled rallies in Missouri and Mississippi on Thursday and Friday so that the president could monitor Hurricane Florence and federal emergency efforts.

Trump plans to visit areas damaged by Hurricane Florence as soon as a visit will not inhibit recovery efforts, the White House said.
