Donald Trump to make campaign stop in Birmingham

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Donald Trump will bring his campaign to the Magic City this week.

The Republican president candidate will appear in the large exhibition hall at the BJCC on Saturday, Nov. 21 at 11 a.m., Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill confirms.

Admission is free, but you can register for a ticket online here. The exhibition hall seats around 8,000 people and the doors will open at 9 a.m.

"We are excited to have Donald Trump bring his campaign to Birmingham," Merrill said in a news release. "I am confident that Mr. Trump's appearance will be welcomed with enthusiasm, just as it was in Mobile."

This is Trump's second appearance in Alabama during his campaign. He appeared in Mobile in August.

Representative Jim Carns of Vestavia Hills is Trump's Alabama campaign chair. He advises people to get there early if they want to get a seat.

Alabama is one of the southern states taking part in a March primary called the SEC Primary. Carns says Trump is attracting Alabama voters.

"I think he is saying exactly what the people are thinking and what they have been wanting people in Washington in leadership to do. People in Washington have said it but they have not done it," Carns said.

Carns said he believes Trump will address the Paris terrorist attack during his speech.

Trump is among a long list of presidential candidates who have visited the state, including, Ben Carson, Rand Paul, Hillary Clinton and Ted Cruz.
