August 29, 2018

The president is coming to Charlotte, and his visit is expected to cause travel problems ahead of Labor Day weekend.

According to NBC Charlotte, President Trump is expected to sign an executive order on retirement security at Central Piedmont Community College and attend a luncheon for two Republican congressional candidates in south Charlotte.

“When you’re talking about congestion, Friday is always the worst day,” said Tiffany Wright, AAA spokeswoman.

Trump’s stop at CPCC could make things even worse for people trying to get out of town. Experts say temporary flight restrictions may be placed at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport. The school is in close proximity to the airport.
