EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, N.J. (CBS) — Air Force One landed Tuesday evening at Atlantic City International Airport as President Donald Trump makes his way to his campaign rally in Wildwood. It’s been a full day for the president, as he spent the morning and early afternoon with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on plans for the Middle East.
The White House is being extremely tight-lipped about who is flying with the president, but the White House Pool spotted Kellyanne Conway, Dan Scavino and Stephen Miller, along with Conway’s children as they departed the White House, just before 5 p.m.
It had been widely reported former Democrat-turned-Republican Jeff Van Drew, congressman for New Jersey’s 2nd district, would be traveling with the president aboard Air Force One, but he was not seen as the president and his entourage left the South Lawn of the White House on Marine One, or as they boarded Air Force One at Andrews Air Force Base.
The president didn’t land at the airport until this evening, but supporters are so excited about his visit, that they made their way to the airport early to hopefully get a glimpse of him once he’s here.
“It’s exciting, it’s just exciting,” Donna Cifelli, of Norristown, Pennsylvania, said. “Wildwood is exciting. People and flags everything. It’s just awesome.”
Trump is expected to take the stage at the Wildwoods Convention Center at 7 p.m.
