HOUSTON, Texas (KXAN) — President Donald Trump is making his way back to Texas in April, in an effort to fundraise for his re-election campaign, the Texas Tribune reports.

On April 10, Trump is planning to travel to Houston and San Antonio to raise money for his campaign. This information comes from people familiar with his campaign plans. However, the White House has not released any information or scheduling announcements.

During the 2018 midterm elections Trump threw a rally in Houston supporting Sen. Ted Cruz’s re-election campaign, bringing in an estimated 16,000 attendees.

The last time the president visited Texas was in February for a rally in El Paso promoting his border wall. At the same time, former congressman and now presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke held a protest march against the wall.
