Trump arrives in Las Vegas, will head to Carson City on Sunday

Updated October 17, 2020 - 10:50 pm

President Donald Trump arrived in Las Vegas around 10 p.m. Saturday. The president will travel to Northern Nevada on Sunday for a campaign rally in Carson City.

Trump does not have any upcoming events scheduled in Las Vegas, according to his public calendar.

Trump last campaigned in Las Vegas on a tour of states in the Southwest in September, which included several events in Las Vegas before traveling to California and Arizona.

Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Jason Buratczuk said at the time that Highway Patrol can’t discuss specific road closures due to security, but he advised drivers to avoid the airport and Interstate 15.
