For the first time since 1991, a sitting President will attend and give remarks at the annual National FFA Convention and Expo.
President Donald Trump is set to address the youth organization at the final session of the 91st convention. Throughout the week, the convention drew more than 65,000 members and guests to Indianapolis, Indiana.
“It is a long-held tradition of the National FFA Organization to invite the sitting President, no matter political affiliation, to bring remarks at the National FFA Convention & Expo,” The Organization wrote on Facebook. “President Trump has accepted our invitation.”
The last president to visit the convention was George H.W. Bush on November 13, 1991, in Kansas City.
Also appearing at this year’s Convention was Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos on Friday. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue is expected to appear alongside the President on Saturday.
