BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — President Donald J. Trump will visit Bakersfield next week, a White House official confirmed on Thursday.

On Wednesday, the president will join Congressman Kevin McCarthy to speak with local farmers about efforts to improve the supply and delivery of water in California and other Western states, the White House said.

On Thursday, the president will deliver remarks at the Hope for Prisoners Graduation Ceremony at the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Headquarters, where he will highlight his administration’s efforts to provide previously-incarcerated Americans with second chances.

The president is also expected to visit Arizona and Colorado next week, according to the White House.

Trump has previously visited Bakersfield in 2016 as he campaigned for the presidency.
