Trump to address invitation-only crowd at Harrisburg National Guard base
President Donald Trump will speak about Republican plans to overhaul the nation's tax code during an invitation-only gathering at Harrisburg Air National Guard Base on Wednesday afternoon.
White House officials late Monday confirmed the visit, adding that further details would likely be released during Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders' daily press briefing.
York County Republican Committee officials told the York Dispatch that the gathering will be a town hall-style event, and that tickets will be limited, based on the size of the venue. They are being distributed through area Republican and business organizations.
Trump's speech will be held at a hangar on site, and will not be open to the general public. Before he addresses the crowd, Trump is scheduled to sit for an interview on site with Fox News' Sean Hannity.
As The Morning Call reported last week, Sanders announced the trip during Friday’s press briefing, initially saying that Trump was headed for Hamburg, in Berks County. That was statement was later corrected to reflect the president's plan to visit the Harrisburg area.
This will be Trump's first visit to the midstate since marking his first 100 days in office with an April 29 speech at the Pennsylvania Farm Show complex in Harrisburg.
The Business Journal will be covering Wednesday's visit to the air base.
