Trump and Pence are expected to attend the roll call votes by the slimmed-down group of 336 RNC delegates who will formally nominate Trump and Pence as the 2020 Republican presidential and vice presidential nominees.

Trump is expected to give brief remarks to the delegates, but his formal acceptance speech will happen remotely Thursday from the White House.
The White House announced Saturday the President would be going to Charlotte as part of a day-long series of events in North and South Carolina. The White House and reelection campaign have refused to divulge any details of Trump’s visit since first reports of the stop emerged Friday.

Trump’s aides were reaching out to potential participants, including a long slate of Americans whose personal stories they believe will resonate with voters.
