Sister station WAVE 3 News says crews are busy setting up equipment at the Galt House for President Donald Trump’s visit to Louisville on Wednesday.

President Trump will deliver remarks at the 75th AMVETS Convention. AMVETS serves America’s veterans and advocates for its members. The speech on Wednesday is restricted to AMVETS members.

After speaking to AMVETS members, President Trump will head to a private fundraiser for Governor Matt Bevin’s reelection campaign.

WAVE 3 News spoke to the Secret Service on Monday about what it is doing to make sure things run smoothly on Wednesday.

Officials with the Secret Service said the public can expect closed roads, no aircraft over the President’s motorcade or downtown Louisville and no traffic on the Ohio River during the President's visit.

The Secret Service is bringing in extra agents, X-ray machines, armored vehicles and equipment during the next 24 hours.

It will thoroughly investigate the Galt House and location of the private fundraiser and work closely with several other agencies.

President Trump last visited Louisville in 2017 for a rally.
