Donald Trump Jr. to speak in Phoenix area this week
PHOENIX — Donald Trump Jr. was planning to visit the Phoenix area at a campaign rally for his father, the Republican presidential nominee, Thursday.
Trump Jr. was scheduled to speak at Arizona State University at the Sun Devil Recreation Center at 2 p.m.
The event, hosted by the campus College Republicans students organization, is free but requires reservation.
The Trump campaign has made about a dozen visits to Arizona in the past year. Besides the GOP nominee’s several visits, his running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence has also appeared at Arizona rallies.
Donald Trump Sr.’s visits to Arizona have been successful and well attended. In an August stop in Phoenix, Trump pitched his immigration plan.
He offered some specifics on the wall he wants built along the United States and Mexico borders — staffed towers, aerial surveillance. He also said he would hire more Border Patrol agents.
Trump has said poll numbers that show him lagging behind Democratic rival Hillary Clinton were “phony.” He easily won the Arizona primary.
