Saturday, December 17, 2016, President-elect Donald J. Trump (R) will return to Ladd-Peoples Stadium in Mobile for the Alabama stop of his national victory tour on Saturday, December 17, 2016, at 3:00 pm Central time.
In August 2015, billionaire and reality TV star Donald J. Trump was welcomed by the people of Alabama in a manner that only Popes experience. He returns on December 17 triumphant as the President-elect after vanquishing the Democratic nominee: former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D).
The event is free; but to be admitted you must have a ticket.
State Representative Mack Butler (R from Rainbow City) said on social media: “Attention!

President-elect Donald J. Trump wrote on his website: “We showed America the silent majority is no longer silent. Today, we created an America that WINS again. Today, we made our hopes, our dreams – our limitless potential – a reality. Today, we made history. Today, we created a government that is once again of, by and for the people. Thank you, America. I will not let you down. I will always be your voice. I will always be your champion. Now it’s time to get to work – to unite, to prosper, to become stronger. Together, I have no doubt we have taken the first step to Make America Great Again!”
On August 2015 the billionaire and reality TV star appeared for a massive gathering in Mobile at Ladd-Peoples Stadium. CNN reported that 30,000 people attended the unprecedented rally, which was televised nationally by all the news networks. Trump appeared on stage with US Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) wearing Trump’s signature “Make America Great Again” red hats. Sen Sessions would become the first Senator to endorse Trump for President and has since been selected by Trump to be U.S. Attorney General. Trump returned to Alabama twice more during the Primary season, filling venues in Birmingham and Madison.
Trump easily won the Alabama Republican Primary and carried the state in a landslide in the November general election.
