Trump Continues Victory Lap With ‘Thank You Tour’ Stops In NC, IA, MI

AP

President-elect Donald Trump is scheduled to hold an event in Fayetteville, North Carolina, on Tuesday night, followed by stops in Iowa and Michigan on Thursday and Friday as part of his post-election victory lap.

Aides billed the tour—a highly unusual move for an incoming president—as a “thank you tour” and said that the President-elect will visit key swing states he won on November 8, as well as historically blue states which voted Republican. Trump surged past Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton to win the key battleground state of North Carolina, his first stop of the week, in the election.

The President-elect is scheduled to share the stage with Vice President-elect Mike Pence in Des Moines, Iowa, on Thursday, and is set to hold an event in Grand Rapids, Michigan, on Friday.

December 6: Fayetteville, North Carolina
December 8: Des Moines, Iowa (with Vice President-elect Mike Pence)
December 9: Grand Rapids, Michigan
