GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP/WNCN) — President Donald Trump is visiting North Carolina for a private fundraising event Saturday.
He is headlining a fundraiser on Saturday night in Greensboro to benefit his Trump Victory joint fundraising committee with the Republican National Committee.
By 6:30 p.m. Air Force One had landed at the Greensboro airport. Supporters and protesters were gathered in the rain along a street near the home where the private event was set to happen.
Trump’s motorcade drove through the area around 7:08 p.m.
The event is expected to raise $2 million, with donors paying up to $35,000 per couple to serve as co-hosts.
WFMY-TV reported the private event will be at the home of Louis Dejoy and Aldona Wos.
Dejoy is a Greensboro businessman and a large donor to the Republican party, while his wife is known for public service under former governor Pat McCrory, the TV station reported.
