WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump will bring his next rally to Pennsylvan­ia when he appears Saturday at the Pennsylvan­ia Farm Show Complex & Expo Center in Harrisburg.

Michael Glassner, a spokesman for Mr. Trump’s re-election campaign, said the rally will be held at 7:30 p.m. Doors will open at 4:30 p.m. for the arena, which can hold 10,000 people.

Tickets, which are free, will be available at www.donaldjtru­mp.com after 1 p.m.

“Pennsylvan­ia has been a very important state politicall­y for the president,” Mr. Glassner said. “Pennsylvan­ia loves him.”

Mr. Glassner said the rally, which will be the fourth in recent weeks, will review Mr. Trump’s accomplish­ments since taking office in January.

Mr. Trump picked a day filled with other potential news and events.

Most notable is the potential federal shutdown. A current government spending bill expires after Friday; lawmakers and the White House have yet to agree on a measure that would continue to fund agencies through the end of the fiscal year on Sept. 30.

There is also an antiTrump climate march that day, focused on Washington with events planned around the world.

Mr. Trump’s rally will fall on the same night as the White House Correspond­ents’ Associatio­n Dinner, which the president and his aides have said they won’t attend.
