FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — Presidential candidate Donald Trump is visiting Fayetteville for a rally on Tuesday after he visits Wilmington earlier in the day.

The Republican nominee, Trump will be in Fayetteville for the second time since March.

As before, Trump’s rally will be at the Crown Coliseum Complex at 1960 Coliseum Drive in Fayetteville.

Doors will tentatively open at 3 p.m. and the event begins at 5:15 p.m., the campaign said

The rally is free, however those wanting to attend will need to register in advance.

Event organizers ask that attendees limit personal items in order to expedite the screening process.

Meanwhile, the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office has changed its procedures for the rally after an altercation at a previous one.

Ronnie Mitchell, a lawyer representing the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office, tells The Fayetteville Observer it will be ready for the Trump campaign visit on Tuesday.

During a Trump appearance in March, a man in the audience hit a protester as he was being led out. That man faces assault and other charges.

Mitchell says the sheriff’s office reviewed the altercation and adjusted its procedures. He declined to elaborate on what’s changed but said the office is working on its security plan for the upcoming event.

The UNC Wilmington College Republicans will sponsor a rally for Trump at 2 p.m. Tuesday, in Trask Coliseum at UNCW, according to WECT. The rally is free, however those wanting to attend will need to register in advance.
