WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump will visit New Orleans on Monday to address the National Farm Bureau Federation’s annual convention.
The trip, confirmed to The Advocate by a White House spokesman, comes amid a partial shutdown of the federal government and a continued standoff between Trump and Democratic Party leaders in Washington over funding for Trump’s proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
It’s unclear whether a solution will be found before Trump boards Air Force One on Monday for the trip to New Orleans. Trump is traveling to Texas on Thursday to tour the border with Mexico.
