GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump will stop by Radford University in southwestern Virginia on Monday, February 29, at noon, at the Dedmon Center. But don’t worry about getting tickets. They are already gone.
Today the university released the following statement on their Facebook page:
“A note to the Radford University community: A representative of Mr. Trump’s campaign approached Radford University by telephone late Tuesday about available venues during his upcoming trip to Southwest Virginia. The campaign requested to rent the Dedmon Center for his event and the university agreed. The university considered this request in the same manner as it would consider requests from other organizations. As an institution of higher education, we at Radford University must be tolerant of all viewpoints, even those with which we may not agree. Radford University is not an official host of the rally and does not otherwise endorse any candidate, their positions or opinions.”
The stop is a day before Virginia’s presidential primary on Tuesday.
