Donald Trump’s campaign confirms final election visit to Arizona
PHOENIX — Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign will make a final election stop in Arizona over the weekend.
Donald Trump, Jr. said his father would visit the Valley and Trump’s campaign confirmed Thursday night that Trump will speak on Saturday at 3 p.m. at the Phoenix Convention Center. Doors will open at 12:30 p.m.
His decision to campaign one last time in Arizona could be driven by recent poll results, which have shown Arizona becoming more and more of a battleground state.
Trump’s visit will be his seventh campaign stop in the state since announcing his candidacy last year.
Trump has primarily used Phoenix stops to bolster his stance on illegal immigration and his promise to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border that would be paid for by Mexico, though the Central American nation has said it would not foot the bill.
The presidential hopeful repeated his wall promise during an August rally at the Phoenix Convention Center, where he unveiled his 10-point immigration plan.
Last year in Mesa, he called for a halt to illegal immigration. Trump said, if the illegal immigration process is not halted, Americans will lose the country.
“If we don’t stop [illegal immigration], we don’t have a country,” he told a crowd of thousands inside an airport hangar at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.
