The rally will take place on Thursday, June 1, and follows Trump’s first visit abroad as president. The president returns to the U.S. on Sunday.


Trump last held a campaign rally in Harrisburg, Pa., on April 29, the same night as the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in Washington, D.C.

Trump broke with long-standing political tradition by not attending the yearly dinner.

"They would love to be with us right here tonight," Trump said of the press that night, adding his rally drew a “much larger crowd, and better people, too.”
