Trump to headline Friday's NRA forum in Houston

Donald Trump will headline a forum at the National Rifle Association's annual meeting in Houston tomorrow.

The Memorial Day weekend event, the year's largest for the organization, is set to "showcase over 14 acres of the latest guns and gear," according to the official NRA website.

The forum is also scheduled to include Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson.

Texas Sen. John Cornyn, who was also scheduled to speak, pulled out for personal reasons that require him to be in Washington on Friday, according to a spokesman.

Lt. Gov. Winsome Earle-Sears or Virginia, a former Marine who strapped an assault rifle over her dress in a memorable campaign ad last year, is scheduled to headline an NRA Women's Leadership Forum luncheon.

The meeting, billed as a "celebration of American freedom," will take place at the George R. Brown Convention Center.

"It is truly an honor to have President Trump address NRA members for the sixth time," said NRA Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre.

He said Trump had "helped ensure the freedom of generations of Americans," by appointing judges who "respect and value the Constitution and the Bill of Rights" and thanked the former president for his "support for our right to keep and bear arms."
