FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — President Donald Trump is expected to return to North Carolina this weekend for his third visit in the past two weeks.
He will be speaking to supporters at the Fayetteville Regional Airport Saturday at 6:30 p.m.
The president recently campaigned in Winston-Salem and visited Wilmington to honor WWII veterans. According to our news partners WTVD, this trip will be Trump’s 14th visit to the state during his term in office and his third this month.
Some people are concerned about another rally in North Carolina weeks after seeing videos from the president’s rally in Winston-Salem where many of the people were not wearing masks.
State leaders said they can’t enforce mask mandates because political rallies are protected under first amendment rights.
Polls show the presidential race in North Carolina in a dead heat. Rasmussen has President Trump leading Democratic challenger Joe Biden by a point.
They are tied in another poll released last week.
“Change Research” and the “Morning Consult" both show a slight lead for Biden, but all results are within the margin for error.
