WAUKESHA — President Donald Trump will speak at a Make America Great Again rally at Stein Aircraft Services, at 2651 Aviation Dr. in Waukesha.

The rally will kick-off at 7 p.m. CT, and doors will be opening as early as 4 p.m.

President Trump, U.S. Representative Bryan Steil and WI Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald will be at the rally.

The president has made quite a few stops in Wisconsin the last couple of weeks. This rally follows his campaign stop in Janesville just last Saturday and his stop in Kenosha following protests and unrest over the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

The Trump campaign initially planned to hold Saturday's rally at Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport - but the airport denied the request.

Lease issue forces Trump rally to move to Waukesha, Milwaukee Mitchell Airport says

An airport spokesperson tells TMJ4 News that the airport's director notified a tenant that all special events that are "non-aeronautical in nature" violate its lease with the airport. Such an event would also violate the City of Milwaukee's ban on large public gatherings.

A representative with County Executive David Crowley's office said the decision wasn't politically motivated, citing candidate and presidential visits using General Mitchell in the past, including President Trump.
