CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Former President Donald Trump will be making a trip to Robstown to host "a speaking engagement," this weekend, according to an email obtained by KRIS 6 News.

According to the email from the Richard M. Borchard Regional Fairgrounds General Manager Jason Green, a contract was signed for the former president to speak in the Coastal Bend on Oct. 22.

Originally, Trump was expected to appear in another state, but had to change locations and later selected the Coastal Bend.
