First on NH1 News: Donald Trump back to NH on Monday
CONCORD – Donald Trump’s returning to New Hampshire next week.
The real estate mogul and reality TV star who says he’s seriously considering a bid for the Republican presidential nomination will be back in the first-in-the-nation primary state on Monday. NH1 News has learned that Trump will start his visit by sitting down for a luncheon with business leaders at the Tuscan Kitchen restaurant in Salem. In the afternoon, Trump will hold an event at New England College in Henniker. And in the evening, he’ll take questions from Republican and conservative activists at Politics and Pies in Concord. The new talking series is fast becoming a must stop for GOP White House hopefuls.
Trump’s return trip to the Granite State comes just nine days after he spoke at the New Hampshire GOP’s First-in-the-Nation Leadership Summit in Nashua. The two-day confab attracted nearly 20 Republican presidential candidates and likely contenders.
“I will make this country great again, believe me. And no politician’s going to do it. That I can tell you with assuredly. So with all the people you are listening to, you can forget it, because politicians are all talk and no action,” Trump told the nearly 700 Republican activists attending the event.
While Trump has flirted with bids for the GOP presidential nomination in the past, including the 2012 cycle, this time he is taking more concrete steps. Last month he announced he was launching a presidential exploratory committee. And Trump has hired veteran political strategists, including New Hampshire based Corey Lewandowski, who most recently served as a top official at Americans For Prosperity.
