Former President Donald Trump is scheduled to speak at the 153rd National Rifle Association annual meeting in Dallas, Texas, along with Gov. Greg Abbott (R) at 2:00 p.m.

Trump told supporters at last night’s Minnesota GOP Lincoln-Reagan Dinner that he has heard rumors that the NRA will endorse him at the event. The NRA has already offered praise for the former president in the lead-up to the event.

“President Trump is under relentless attacks because he is not afraid to fight for those who share his American values,” NRA Interim Executive Vice President & CEO Andrew Arulanandam said.”He is uniquely qualified to address our members who know what it’s like to stand for something, even when it’s hard. The NRA and our millions of members around the country have President Trump’s back, and we know he has ours.”

Randy Kozuch, Executive Director of NRA-ILA, added, ”President Trump’s presence at the NRA Annual Meeting is a powerful sign of his ongoing commitment to our constitutional freedoms and the Association’s efforts to protect and advance the Second Amendment rights of every law-abiding American. His fellow NRA members can’t wait to hear from him at this pivotal moment in our Nation’s history.”

The NRA endorsed Trump in 2016 and 2020. Texas is rated “likely Republican” by the Cook Political Report, and Trump won the state by about 6% in 2020. 538’s polling average in the state favors Trump by 10.1% as of May 18, significantly higher than his three-point lead on this date in 2020.

President Joe Biden won Dallas County, which contains the city of Dallas, 65.1% to 33.4% in 2020. The city is a hotbed for Democratic votes in the state, which hasn’t been won by a Democrat since former president Jimmy Carter in 1976.
