President Trump is now en-route to the Queen City where he will make two stops to sign a new executive order and host a fundraiser for North Carolina congressional candidates.
According to the White House, at around 2:00 pm Friday afternoon, President Trump will stop at Central Piedmont Community College’s Harris Conference Center in the Elizabeth Neighborhood, where he’ll deliver remarks and sign an executive order titled “strengthening retirement security in America.”
The President will then travel south to the Carmel Country Club where he will hold a private fundraiser for North Carolina congressional candidate Mark Harris (9th district – Republican) and U.S. Representative Ted Bud (13th district – Republican).
The North Carolina Republican Party announced earlier this week that the event location was changed from the Trump National Golf Course on Lake Norman to the Carmel Country Club in Charlotte.
Tickets are still available, ranging in price from $1,000 to $25,000.
CMPD is now warning Charlotte residents to expect delays throughout the day along the President’s route.
Significant delays can be expected on Billy Graham Parkway, Interstate 77, and in South Charlotte in the Johnston Road and Carmel Road areas.
