President Trump to speak at conference Friday in Kansas City

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — President Donald Trump will travel to Kansas City, Missouri, on Friday to address a conference hosted by the U.S. Department of Justice. 

Trump will speak at the Project Safe Neighborhoods National Conference, which brings together hundreds of federal, state and local law enforcement members, prosecutors, researchers, community organizers and violent crime reduction specialists, a White House spokesperson said. 

The conference will run Wednesday through Friday. Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, whom Trump appointed after firing former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, will also speak. 

Trump visited Missouri several times leading up to the midterm elections to support Sen.-elect Josh Hawley during his campaign against Sen. Claire McCaskill.
