The last time Trump came to Alaska it was on a refueling stop on his way to Vietnam for talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Trump met with Gov. Michael Dunleavy on that trip, but during Trump’s time in Alaska this time, Dunleavy will be in Juneau.

Melania Trump visited JBER in November, 2017 to visit with military families.
