RALEIGH — 45th President Donald J. Trump will hold a rally in Wilmington on Friday, Sept. 23, his Save America PAC announced Wednesday.

Trump will deliver remarks in support of Ted Budd, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate, as well as other endorsed candidates.

“President Trump’s commitment to protecting and promoting American jobs grew our economy and created more and better opportunities for all Americans,” said Budd in a statement. “President Trump carried North Carolina twice and Amy Kate and I are thrilled he’s heading back to our great state to get folks fired up as our campaign accelerates into the final stretch. And, in the spirit of bipartisanship, we would also welcome Joe Biden to come campaign early and often for Cheri Beasley and personally, and publicly, thank her for supporting his disastrous economic policies.”

Wilmington International Airport’s Aero Center will be the venue of the rally.

Trump visited Wilmington in September 2020 when he was president, honoring the city as the first World War II Heritage city.
