Trump to hold 1st public campaign event in South Carolina

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Former President Donald Trump is planning to hold the first public campaign event of his 2024 White House bid in the early-voting state of South Carolina. Campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung tells The Associated Press that Trump will visit South Carolina later this month. No other details of the visit have been announced. Since announcing his latest presidential run in November, Trump has limited his public campaign appearances to events at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida before an invited crowd or in a virtual setting. Trump’s campaign has faced criticism, even among some longtime allies, for its low profile since the announcement.
