Making his first visit back to the Yellowhammer State after taking home a stunning victory over Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton, president-elect Donald Trump‘s post-election victory tour will swing through Mobile, Ala. on Saturday, December 17.
The Trump team is referring to this as a “Thank You Tour,” during which the president-elect will visit select states across the country and express his gratitude.
“It’s not just going to go to swing states,” Jennifer Jacobs of Bloomberg Politics said last week on MSNBC. “One place they’re going to go is Mobile, Alabama, which is a place that is really special for Trump and his campaign. They attracted 30,000 people there last summer. It was a symbolic moment for them when they really realized they had a movement going on and could take this somewhere.”
Trump visited Mobile back in 2015 where a crowd of about 20,000 people heard the candidate at Ladd-Peebles Stadium, according to the City of Mobile.
The venue for the Mobile event and the time have yet to be announced; Alabama Today will share additional details as they become available.
