Donald Trump Jr., businessman, entrepreneur and son of President Donald Trump, will speak Oct. 5 at the Montgomery-based Faulkner University the university announced on Tuesday.
University President Mike Williams made the announcement to the press that Trump Jr. would speak at the school’s annual Annual Benefit Dinner at the Renaissance Hotel and Convention Center.
“Donald Trump, Jr. is a giant in the landscape of American Business, and we are extremely excited to have him here in Montgomery,” Williams said. “We are confident that those who attend the benefit dinner will hear an incredibly memorable speech from Mr. Trump.”
In the past, Faulkner has brought renowned politicians, journalists, athletes, coaches, comedians and astronauts to speak in Montgomery over the years. Faulkner chose Trump for its 75th anniversary dinner because of his experience in business and his insights from the campaign trail.
“Mr. Trump is a conservative who has spent a tremendous amount of time traveling the country learning about a number of important issues including education. He is particularly excited to come to Faulkner to address their students and alumni about the need for conservative viewpoints in higher education,” Williams added. “The insight he has gained into our political system and the American people during his father’s presidential campaign will, no doubt, be fascinating and eye-opening.”
Proceeds from the dinner go to support the university, as well as student scholarships.
“The Annual Benefit Dinner is our biggest event each year. We love being able to share these great speakers with the River Region, but more than that, we are so excited about the scholarship opportunities this dinner provides for our students,” Williams continued. “The contributions made by the people who attend our benefit dinner are changing the lives of students at Faulkner University.”
