Donald Trump in Grand Rapids: How to get tickets

Donald Trump visits GR Monday

WALKER, MICH. - The doors to the DeltaPlex Arena are scheduled to open at 9 a.m. for Donald Trump's visit to Grand Rapids.

Sunday it was all hands on deck at the venue, getting everything in order in preparation for Trump's arrival.

"The crowd I expect to be really wired up, ready to go, they're going to support their candidate-- this being that close to the election I think they're going to be pretty intense," DeltaPlex owner Joel Langlois said.

Ticket information for the Monday, Oct. 31, event has been published on the Republican presidential candidate's website. It's expected Trump will begin speaking at noon.

Trump later will hold a rally on the east side of the state at 3 p.m. at Macomb Community College in Warren, Mich.

Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence was last in Michigan on Oct. 17, stopping in Macomb County.

The Democrats also are scheduled to make appearances in Michigan this weekend. Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine will return on Sunday with events at union halls in Taylor and Warren, while Chelsea Clinton will make stops in Battle Creek and Muskegon on Saturday.

Retired pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson, a Detroit native who dropped out of the Republican presidential primary race and threw his support to Trump, will be in Grand Rapids on Saturday.

A poll done last weekend for the Free Press/WXYZ-TV (Channel 7) and their outstate partners by EPIC-MRA of Lansing showed Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state, leading Trump, a Republican businessman, casino developer and reality TV star, 41-34 percent in a four-way race that also includes Gary Johnson, who got 9 percent and Green Party nominee Jill Stein, who had 3 percent.

The poll does not include reactions to the FBI's announcement that it found new emails related to the bureau's previously closed case into Clinton's handling of classified information.
