Donald Trump Jr. to host campaign event at Gainesville gun shop and shooting range


Donald Trump Jr. speaks to a crowd of more than 800 people on October 10, 2019. Trump’s speech was met with a mixture of cheers and boos.

Donald Trump Jr. is returning to Gainesville next week.

The son of President Donald Trump will host an event Monday at noon at Shoot GTR at 1610 NW 65 Place in Gainesville, according to the Trump campaign website.
