DES MOINES, Iowa – Republican officials say Donald Trump
will address the party’s Lincoln Day dinner as part of his first
foray into Iowa as a possible presidential contender.
The New York billionaire and reality TV figure has already
announced plans to visit New Hampshire in June.
Iowa Republican Party Chairman Matt Strawn says Trump will speak
June 10 in Des Moines.
Strawn says the Iowa party invited Trump so he could introduce
himself to Iowa Republicans. He noted Trump’s success as an
“entrepreneur and job creator.”
Trump has said he will decide by June whether to seek the
Republican presidential nomination.
