HENNIKER, NH – If you’re gambling on Donald Trump to enter the fray, then you may want to take advantage of his next New Hampshire stop, on April 27, to see if he’s looking and sounding presidential.

The casino magnate-turned political personality and potential 2016 GOP presidential candidate will make a few stops around the Granite State:

First scheduled stop is to mingle with the noon lunch crowd at the Tuscan Kitchen in Salem, followed by a stop at the Hudson VFW, 15 Bockes Rd., for a meet and greet. The event is scheduled for 1:25 p.m.

After that, the Donald  will lead his first Town Hall meeting at New England College, 98 Bridge St., Henniker, April 27, 2015.  This free and public event will begin at 3 p.m. in the Simon Center Great Room, which is located at 98 Bridge Street in Henniker, NH.  Seating is first come-first served and will be open to the media. The event is sponsored by New England College’s Center for Civic Engagement which leads numerous Town Hall events, political debates, and a nationally-reported Polling Institute.  The audience is expected to be a large diverse mix of students, political clubs, and New Hampshire voters who are interested in hearing from one of many candidates considering a run for United States President.

Trump will finish the day of campaigning as featured speaker for “Politics & Pie” in Concord at 5:30 p.m. The forum is held at the Snowshoe Club, 45 Via Tranquilla St. (off of Little Pond Road) and is limited to the first 100 Republican primary voters who reserve a seat through the Concord GOP via Kerry Marsh at or (603) 582-0119.

Trump has yet to announce his candidacy, inviting speculation that this small college in New Hampshire could be the forum for an unexpected and unscripted announcement.

“We’re thrilled to host Mr. Trump,” said New England College Provost Mark Watman, who will lead the formal welcome.  “Faculty and students in our business, history, and political science programs are especially excited to hear from such an accomplished and public celebrity.  We know his visit will attract a significant audience and would be honored to have him formally announce his candidacy alongside our students.”

As a College known for providing experiential and hands-on education, New England College students will introduce their guest, assist with the Q & A session, and help manage the event’s logistics.

“New Hampshire is known for its unique access to candidates, and New England College has done just that for its students,” said student Amanda Biundo. “It gives aspiring politicos like me the opportunity to really experience politics beyond the classroom.”

Trump has spent his career building hotels and golf courses all over the world.  He is the Emmy-nominated star and co-producer of the reality television series, “The Apprentice,” and “The Celebrity Apprentice.”  He also co-owns the Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA Pageants.  The Donald J. Trump Signature Collection and Trump Home Collection includes tailored clothing, dress shirts, ties, cufflinks, eyewear, furniture, mattresses and accessories.  Mr. Trump has authored more than 15 bestsellers and his first book, The Art of the Deal, is considered a business classic and one of the most successful business books of all time.  In 2007, Trump received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and he is among the highest paid public speakers in the world.
