PHOENIX — Donald Trump’s rally scheduled for Saturday in Arizona was postponed until next week due to the death of his ex-wife, the former president announced Friday.
The event in Prescott Valley will be rescheduled until July 22. Doors at the Findlay Toyota Center will open at 2 p.m. before the rally starts at 7 p.m.
The rally is scheduled to include a range of Arizona Republicans endorsed by Trump as guest speakers, including gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, U.S. Senate candidate Blake Masters, secretary of state candidate Mark Finchem and attorney general candidate Abe Hamadeh.
“My heart goes out to President Trump and his children,” Lake said on Twitter. “I am saddened to receive news that tomorrow’s Save America rally has been canceled, however I know firsthand that it is important to be surrounded by family when you lose a mother.
“We look forward to seeing you next Friday.”
Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb, Arizona Republican Party Chairwoman Kelli Ward and My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell are also scheduled to speak.
Ivana Trump, the president’s first wife, died at age 73, her family announced Thursday.
Donald Trump last visited Arizona in January for a rally southeast of Phoenix.
