President Donald Trump To Speak In Nashville Wednesday

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - President Donald Trump is heading to Tennessee. It's the first time the nation's 45th President will visit the volunteer state since taking the oath of office in January. President Trump is scheduled to speak Wednesday evening at the Nashville municipal auditorium.

The White House is not releasing details beyond the visit, but we do know this event will be attended by supporters in this area, and closely monitored by Memphians who oppose his policies.

It will be a little more than a year from when then-candidate Trump visited Millington for a rally.

"Him coming to Nashville is just a start, we're talking about maybe getting him back to Millington,” says Trump supporter and Shelby County commissioner Terry Roland.

Roland expects President Trump to sell the crowd on proposed legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, especially in Nashville, which is a major health care industry hub, along with other issues.

"Jobs and infrastructure, that's probably going to be two of the things that will be on the top of the list,” says Roland.

President Trump's visit to Nashville also expected to bring its share of demonstrators.

Then President Barack Obama also visited the Nashville region in the summer of 2015; an event focused primarily on defending the Affordable Care Act.

According to the official Donald Trump website, the event is being billed as a rally. Doors are set to open at 3:30 p.m. CT, and the event will start at 6:30 p.m.

The Tennessee Republican Party released the following statement from Chairman Scott Golden regarding the announcement of President Trump's Nashville Rally:

"I am very excited about President Trump's Nashville visit next Wednesday. In November, Tennesseans decidedly aligned with his America First agenda giving him a 26 point margin of victory. That agenda is off to a great start with the American private sector adding over half a million new jobs in the first 2 months of 2017. I welcome him back to the Volunteer State as he continues his efforts to show us he is a President for all Americans.”
