The 45th president will speak at 5 p.m. central at Waco Regional Airport located at 7909 Karl May Dr, about 90 minutes south of Fort Worth, his campaign announced Friday. As early as this week, Trump could be charged on alleged hush money paid to pornographic actress Stormy Daniels.
“It is undisputed that Texas is Trump Country,” a press release announcing the first campaign stop said.
Former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley has also declared her candidacy. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, former Vice President Mike Pence and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are also expected to enter the race. President Joe Biden is expected to seek a second term.
