Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will travel to Baltimore on Monday to speak with a conference of National Guard officers taking place in the Inner Harbor – his first visit to the city as a candidate.

Republican front runner Donald Trump is seeking a venue to hold a large rally in Maryland after the New York primary on April 19.

Trump last visited the state in June, when he spoke to a fundraiser for the Maryland Republican Party.
