BALTIMORE (AP) - Donald Trump is set to visit Baltimore next week to speak to National Guard officers from across the country.

The National Guard Association of the United States announced Friday that the Republican candidate for president is scheduled to speak at its annual conference at the Baltimore Convention Center on Monday afternoon.

Retired Maj. Gen. Gus Hargett, the association’s president, says they are “curious to hear Mr. Trump’s vision for national defense and how the National Guard fits into those plans.”

Organizers say they have hosted at least one presidential candidate every presidential election year since 1992 and both Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton were invited.

Trump won the Republican primary in heavily Democratic Maryland, but Republican Gov. Larry Hogan has said he doesn’t plan to vote for Trump.
