Donald Trump Jr.

Donald Trump Jr. speaks with supporters of his father, Donald Trump, at a campaign rally at the Sun Devil Fitness Center at Arizona State University in Tempe, Ariz., in 2016.

As the president ramps up his reelection campaign, son Donald Trump Jr. is coming to Denver this weekend.

Trump Jr. will speak Friday at the annual Western Conservative Summit, announced the Centennial Institute, which puts on the event.

“Donald Trump Jr. is one of the boldest conservative voices in the nation,” says a statement by Jeff Hunt, event chairman and Centennial Institute director. “He is a warrior for limited government, free markets, personal freedom and the Constitution. We are elated he will be speaking at the Western Conservative Summit.”

The elder Trump spoke at the summit in 2016, soon after clinching the GOP nomination.

The president’s oldest son is executive vice president of The Trump Organization. He also has been a central figure in Trump’s scandals, including accepting a meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in Trump Tower in June 2016. Ultimately, he was not charged by special counsel Robert Mueller.

He did not tell his father about the meeting, the younger Trump told a closed-door, Republican-led Senate committee last month.

The summit, in its 10th year, is billed as the largest annual gathering of conservative leaders, activists and operatives outside of Washington, D.C.
