The Donald is coming to New Orleans.
The Republican Leadership Conference, which characterizes itself as “America’s premier Republican event of 2014,” announced Friday that business mogul Donald Trump will deliver the keynote address on May 30.
The conference said: “Donald J. Trump is the very definition of the American success story. He has continually set new standards of excellence while expanding his interests nationally and internationally ... He is the archetypal businessman — a deal maker without peer and an ardent philanthropist.”
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., former President George W. Bush’s nephew, George P. Bush, and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., also are on the invitation list.
