Next Saturday night I will be holding a BIG rally in Pennsylvania. Look forward to it!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 22, 2017
The event will be held at the PA Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in the New Holland Arena in Harrisburg.
April 29 is also the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner in Washington.
Most presidents attend the event. Trump previously announced that he is boycotting this year's dinner to protest what he says is unfavorable coverage by the news media. His staff is also boycotting in a show of "solidarity" with the president.

The announcement comes the day after the Trump administration intensified its threats to crack down on sanctuary cities that refuse to comply with federal immigration authorities. A justice department letter was sent to the Mayors of eight so-called sanctuary cities, including Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney.
The letter requires the cities to prove they are complying with an immigration law and cooperating with immigration authorities to continue receiving a specific law enforcement grant.
