President-elect Donald Trump will return to Mobile later this month as part of his “Thank You” victory tour, the Mobile Press-Register reported Tuesday.
The visit hasn’t been confirmed by campaign officials, but the paper cited sources within Mobile’s city government who said an event was in the works for Saturday, December 17.
The most likely venue for a victory rally is Ladd-Peebles Stadium, the same place where Trump held one of his campaign’s earliest rallies back in 2015. That event drew around 20,000 people as Trump appeared alongside Alabama senator Jeff Sessions, the first U.S. Senator to back Trump and who’s now his nominee for Attorney General.
The Mobile Civic Center would serve as a backup location, sources told the paper.
Trump was a frequent visitor to the Gulf Coast during the campaign, holding rallies in Mobile; Biloxi, Miss.; Pensacola, and Panama City, Fla. in the 18 months leading up to last month’s presidential election. Trump defeated former U.S. Senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in that election to become the 45th president of the United States. He takes office on January 20.
