PHOENIX — Presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump will speak near downtown Phoenix on Saturday, his website said.

An event listing on Trump’s website said he will host an event at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum, located near McDowell Road and 19th Avenue, at 4 p.m.

Tickets are available online.

Attendees will not be allowed to bring in homemade signs or banners. Backpacks, large bags and professional cameras are also not allowed.

The doors will be open at noon so people can wait in the air-conditioned facility.

The stop will be Trump’s fourth in the Valley since announcing his candidacy.

During his last visit in March, protesters blocked a road that led to his event in Fountain Hills.

In other visits, he talked about immigration in a 70-minute speech at the Phoenix Convention Center last July to a packed house.

In a brief December stop in Mesa, he brought up the topic again.

Trump easily carried the state in March 22 presidential preference election, despite hourslong waiting at polling places.

Enjoying such strong support in Arizona helped spark rumors that former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer was among the names on a list of potential vice-presidential candidates.

Brewer threw her support behind Trump in February and defended him when 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney went after Trump in a March speech.

And even as he has come under fire for recent comments about a judge that members of his own party said were racist, Trump picked up California, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota on Tuesday.

Running unopposed, Trump had collected enough delegates before the end of May to clinch the nomination.
