Donald Trump returning to Tennessee this weekend

FRANKLIN, Tenn. (WKRN) – Donald Trump will return to Tennessee to speak in Franklin Saturday.

The Republican front-runner will be at The Factory around 2:30 p.m.

This will be Trump’s third visit to the state this year and his second as a presidential candidate.

People who spoke to News 2 touched on the issues they would like him to address at the rally.

“I think we really need to improve our military and I think at one point he said something about what he would do with the military and it just sounded like we would be a little bit better protected,” said voter Mamie Tays.

“I hope he comes through and shows people who he actually really is,” said Katie Pritchett.

Trump’s first visit to Nashville was in April to speak at the 2015 National Rifle Association Convention.

In August he spoke at a conference for the National Federation of Republican Assemblies in Nashville.

Friday, Donald Trump tweeted about his visit to Nashville saying, “Will be in Nashville, Tennessee, tomorrow (Saturday) at 2:30 P.M. So much to talk about – see you there.”

Trump joins a line of presidential hopefuls trying to court Williamson County Voters.

He will be the sixth GOP presidential contender to visit the county in three months but not everyone News 2 spoke with supports him.

“I think America needs some change, and I know he has some radical ideas, some of which would benefit America but I think he is too polarizing. We need someone who can bring this county together instead of being too divisive,” said voter Bob Purdy.

Tickets for general admission are free. There are about 2,000 available. People who don’t have tickets can gather in the Factory’s parking lot. Click here to purchase tickets.
