Air Force One touches down at the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport

News

AVOCA, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU-TV) President Trump arrived in Northeastern Pennsylvania this evening for a town hall meeting in Scranton.

Pennsylvania is a key battleground state. We were on the tarmac of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport. You can see quite the welcoming committee including the Secret Service, State and local police and military personnel. There are also local officials including lawmakers and the GOP faithful.

The motorcade will travel to the Scranton Cultural Center located about 8 miles away. This Presidential visit is a bit different than those we have covered in the past. The departure of Air Force One is closed to the media.

Once President Trump’s motorcade departs the airport, the media also has to depart. The White House has not given any reason as to why the departure is closed.

President Trump turned Pennsylvania red in 2016 and he’s hoping for a repeat performance in 2020. Scranton is Joe Biden’s hometown. We will live stream the arrival of Air Force One here on PAhomepage.com.
