As previously rumored, President Donald Trump will visit Chattanooga Sunday just ahead of Election Day, with the administration focusing on the closely connected Southeast Tennessee-North Georgia region.
The White House says President Trump will speak at McKenzie Arena Sunday, Nov. 4 at 7 p.m. Eastern, WDEF says.

Previous rumors had the president visiting the Scenic City on Monday, Nov. 5.
“We are pleased to announce the final stretch of our national midterm campaign tour with MAGA rallies scheduled in key congressional districts and states including Florida, Missouri, West Virginia, Indiana, Montana, Georgia, Tennessee, and Ohio,” said Michael Glassner, chief operating officer for Donald J. Trump for President Inc.
“It will be a sprint to the finish of the midterms for President Trump who is campaigning hard for GOP House and Senate campaigns across the map. We can’t go back to the days of high taxes and low expectations. Voters must choose the right future on Election Day and support President Trump’s successful America First agenda with the continued support of GOP majorities in the House and Senate,” Glassner said.
On the same day, Nov. 4, the president will also be in Macon, Georgia, where Republican Brian Kemp and Democrat Stacey Abrams are locked in a tight race to become Georgia’s next governor, the Times Free Press said.
Vice President Mike Pence will visit Dalton, Georgia, just outside Chattanooga, at 11:30 a.m. Eastern on Nov. 1, the Tennessee Star reported last week, citing the Times Free Press.
Trump’s visits are part of a multi-state tour in the final days of the midterm elections where he hopes to be the difference maker in close contests, the Times Free Press said.
This is the seventh rally that Trump has held in Tennessee and the first rally in Chattanooga since he first began his race for president in June, 2015, WRCB said.
