Trump’s La Crosse visit Saturday canceled; POTUS to campaign in Janesville
News comes after La Crosse's mayor asked President Trump to cancel scheduled visit
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – President Donald Trump’s Make America Great Again rally will not happen in La Crosse, sources tell News 8 Now.
La Crosse Regional Airport Director Ian Turner confirmed to News 8 Now Air Force One will not make its scheduled stop this Saturday in La Crosse for a planned rally.
Turner said the president canceled the rally because the airport’s lease didn’t allow for such an event to be held there.
The Trump campaign Thursday announced that it will go to Janesville, Wis., for a 3:30 p.m. appearance at the Janesville Regional Airport, rather than coming to La Crosse.
Mayor Tim Kabat voiced concerns about the President’s visit on CNN Thursday morning. There is no word on whether the mayor’s request to cancel is the reason for the change.
We will have an update on the cancelation on News 8 Now at five, six, and ten.
