Trump might visit Great Falls next week
President Trump may be visiting Great Falls next week.
Several sources in Great Falls have heard rumblings of the visit but few details are available.
The White House has talked to officials at the Expo Park about availability for July 4-5, but has not executed a contract, according to county officials.
The Great Falls Police Department and Cascade County Sheriff’s Office were alerted to the potential visit. The visit was mentioned in Monday’s city staff meeting, according to several city officials.
The White House press office could not confirm the visit Wednesday morning.
The visit would be an effort to campaign for Sen. Jon Tester’s opponent, Matt Rosendale.
Donald Trump Jr. was in Montana last week for the state Republican convention.
The White House has also reached out to Holman Aviation about the potential visit midday July 5 and asked for information. Dwight Holman said he hasn’t heard back yet about any details.
If and when more details are available, they’ll be posted here.
