Trump coming to Birmingham ahead of Republican runoff

Both Mike Durant and Katie Britt appear to be positioning themselves to win Trump’s endorsement.

The American Freedom Tour shows Donald Trump among the speakers coming to Birmingham in June, along with Donald Trump Jr. and Dinesh D'Souza.

Former President Donald Trump will be in Birmingham on June 18 as part of the “American Freedom Tour.”

The event will also include speakers Donald Trump Jr., Kimberly Guilfoyle, Dinesh D’Souza and Sheriff Mark Lamb.

Trump’s visit will come between the Republican primary and a potential runoff, which is expected for the U.S. Senate race, likely between Mike Durant and Katie Britt. 

After months of speculation, Trump finally pulled his endorsement of sitting congressman Mo Brooks and both Durant and Britt have been making moves that appear to be positioning themselves to win the coveted blessing.

Trump has not yet said he will make a new endorsement in the race.

The event bills itself as a “historic, must-attend event featuring America’s top insiders and influencers” and tells prospective guests that they will be able to “build important relationships, help promote a conservative agenda and protect America’s future.”

Tickets are currently on sale at americanfreedomtour.com/events/246 although a venue is still to be decided. Tickets start at $25 with a range of up-priced options with various add-ons. The site warns that prices will be going up after Friday.
