Former President Trump to give speech at North Carolina Republican Convention in Greenville
GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Former President Donald Trump will be the keynote speaker at the North Carolina Republican GOP Convention dinner in Greenville Saturday night.
This is one of the former president’s first speaking events since leaving the White House. Many of the party faithful like California Republican Delegate and North Carolina native, Brian Hawkins, are hoping Trump’s speech will strengthen the unity in the party.
“Obviously there’s a division within the party right now, and we’re trying to really bring it together. You know you have so many different ideologies, but given the fact that you know, President Trump really did bring a strong voice. A strong will of fighting for the American people. It’s time for us to really get back to some of those core principles.,” said Hawkins.
Democrats will also be out in Pitt County trying to drum up support of President Joe Biden’s America Rescue Plan Act. They are calling it the “Day of Action”, and will be phone banking to raise awareness about COVID-19 vaccinations in 20 counties with low vaccination rates, as well as going door to door asking for support in the American Rescue Plan.
Kristi Noem the Governor of South Dakota will also be speaking at the convention on Saturday at the Congressional Lunch at noon.
You can watch former President Trump’s speech Saturday night at 7:00 p.m. on WITN’s website or Facebook page.
