The Donald at The Citadel


Feb 8 2015 12:01 am

You can’t run for president as a Republican in South Carolina without first visiting The Citadel. Later this month it’s Donald Trump’s turn. The reality TV host and New York real estate mogul will be honored at the Republican Society’s Patriot Dinner Feb. 22. Also on the bill is U.S. Tim Scott, R-S.C. “We reached out to him,” Republican Society organizer Eddie Taylor said of getting Trump to appear. While Trump’s schedule is still in the works, he’s expected to fly into Charleston on his private plane. There will also be a tour of the interior for a group of cadets. “His own tab,” Taylor said of his flight arrangements.

The Republican Society is a school club with more than 300 members. The Patriot Dinner is the annual fundraiser that helps pay for club members to attend the Conservative Political Action
