CHARLOTTE – On Thursday, Oct. 1, Ivanka Trump will visit Charlotte for a conversation with Mercedes Schlapp and local supporters to campaign for President Donald Trump’s re-election.

This visit marks Ms. Trump’s sixth visit to the state in the past 3 ½ years. Her most recent visit to the Tar Heel State was earlier this month where she held a fireside chat in Wilmington. She also accompanied the president to Mills River in August 2020 for a Farmers to Families Food Box distribution. During that visit, the President announced another $1 billion in funding for the Farmers to Families Food Box program that has so far delivered over 100 million boxes of fresh produce, meat and dairy to families in-need across the country. That event was also followed up by an appearance at the State Farmer’s Market in Raleigh. 

“President Trump has delivered time and time again for the great state of North Carolina including cutting taxes for families, providing crucial increased funding for our military, and delivering USMCA for America’s workers. I am once again honored to meet with the people of North Carolina to discuss how the President will continue to fight for them for the next four years,” said Ms. Trump.

Thursday’s visit comes just after President Trump’s daugher-in-law, Lara Trump, visited southwestern Wake County on Monday.
