Trump addresses NRA convention in Dallas: Watch live

Former President Trump will address members of the National Rifle Association (NRA) Saturday at a convention in Dallas.

Trump’s appearance will mark the ninth time he has spoken before the gun rights group and comes as the NRA’s leadership has gone through a tumultuous period.

“President Trump is under relentless attacks because he is not afraid to fight for those who share his American values,” NRA Interim Executive Vice President and CEO Andrew Arulanandam said in the announcement. “He is uniquely qualified to address our members who know what it’s like to stand for something, even when it’s hard.”

In his last address, Trump promised NRA members that he would provide stronger protections for Second Amendment rights if he’s reelected in November.

“The NRA and our millions of members around the country have President Trump’s back, and we know he has ours,” Arulanandam said in his statement.

Trump is expected to speak around 5:15 p.m. EDT.
