White House official says Trump not planning visit to Kentucky this weekend


A White House official on Wednesday said there are no plans for President Donald Trump to visit Louisville on Saturday.

Media outlets in Louisville had reported earlier in the day that Trump was expected to visit the city this weekend. The Courier-Journal and WDRB both reported on Wednesday that a spokeswoman with the Louisville Regional Airport Authority had confirmed the presidential visit to Louisville on Saturday.

Later Wednesday, a White House official said the president’s schedule isn’t finalized, but there is no plan to visit Kentucky this weekend.

Then-candidate Trump visited Louisville last March for a campaign stop, and also spoke at the National Rifle Association’s annual convention there in May. Trump easily carried Kentucky in the November election.

Donald Trump had little patience for protesters during his campaign stop in Louisville. See how he responded to each protest and interruption during his speech.
