President Donald Trump will speak a the La Crosse Regional airport Saturday afternoon.

The event is set to start at 3:30 p.m. with gates opening at 12:30 p.m.

Trump would be the fifth sitting president in a row to visit La Crosse, dating back to George HW Bush in 1992. President Barack Obama spoke at UW-La Crosse on July 2, 2015.

The last time — and, perhaps, first time — Trump came to La Crosse, he was running for president. He spoke for 52 minutes at a rally at the La Crosse Center in front of about 1,700 on April 4, 2016.

Following Saturday’s event at the airport, Trump will travel to Green Bay airport for another Make America Great Again rally.
