Donald Trump to hold Arizona events in Fountain Hills, Phoenix, Tucson

Mar 17, 2016, 11:13 AM | Updated: Mar 18, 2016, 6:55 pm

PHOENIX — Republican front-runner Donald Trump will hold an event outside Phoenix on Saturday morning.

The event will take place at Fountain Park in Fountain Hills at 11 a.m. Tickets to the event are free and they can be reserved on Eventbrite.

The event was originally scheduled for the Fountain Hills Community Center but a larger venue became necessary.

Prior to the Fountain Hills event, Trump was scheduled to join Fox News commentator Sean Hannity for an event at the Phoenix Convention Center at 9 a.m.

This will be Trump’s third campaign stop in the Phoenix area prior to Arizona’s March 22 presidential preference election.

The human rights organization Puente is planning to protest the event, according to a recent Facebook post.

Another group, Rally for L.E., plans to counter-protest.

“Puente is pro-illegal immigration,” Rally for L.E. founder Nohl Rosen said. “That’s not something I’m for.”

After the Fountain Hills event, Trump will head to Tucson for a 3 p.m. event at the city’s convention center.

Trump has already visited Phoenix and Mesa during this election cycle.

An event in July drew a massive crowd and forced the New York billionaire to shift venues from the Arizona Biltmore to the Phoenix Convention Center.

During his first stop in the Phoenix area, Trump covered a myriad of topics, from China to illegal immigration.

Trump echoed similar statements in his second stop, when he proclaimed “If we don’t stop [illegal immigration], we don’t have a country,” to a crowd of thousands inside an airport hangar at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.

Trump has enjoyed strong support in Arizona since his campaign began, from both politicians and the general public alike.

Arizona Treasurer Jeff DeWit, who serves as Trump’s campaign chair in Arizona, has said Trump’s business acumen is needed to turn the country around.

Despite doing well in Arizona polls — the latest had him 14 points ahead of rival Ted Cruz — Trump launched a campaign ad featuring his daughter, Ivanka, in the state last week.

Earlier this week Trump won four of five states and added to his delegate lead.
