President Donald Trump will make a campaign stop on the Peninsula Friday.
The president’s campaign team made the announcement Tuesday.
The event will be at the Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport at 9 p.m.
Worth noting, the doors open at 6 p.m.

The president last visited the area in March when he sent off the USNS Comfort, a 1,000-bed hospital ship, to help in the coronavirus response in New York City.
That was Trump’s first trip outside Washington since March 9 and only his second outside the gates of the White House since a March 19 trip to the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
Trump delivered remarks last July to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the First Representative Legislative Assembly at Jamestown.
The announcement of the rally sparked a strong response from the Virginia Democratic Party.
“Today, the 200,000th American succumbed to the COVID-19 pandemic, but instead of finally creating a plan to ensure the health and safety of Virginians, President Trump is announcing a superspreader rally where he will put Virginians in danger,” Virginia Democratic Party Press Secretary Hannah Muldavin said in a prepared statement. “Friday’s rally won’t do anything to address the issues that matter most to Virginians, whether that’s failing to support the families of more than 3,000 people across the Commonwealth who have died from COVID, or trying to rip away protections for the 3.4 million Virginians with a pre-existing condition by trying to dismantle the ACA. Those voters want a leader who will put their health and safety first — not one who will put it in jeopardy with a political rally.”
