Trump visiting Greensboro for Oct. 7 fundraiser at DeJoy home

President Donald J. Trump is expected to return to North Carolina for his first visit since his 2016 election victory, appearing on Oct. 7 at a Republican National Committee fundraiser. Louis DeJoy is hosting the event at his Greensboro home, according to an invitation received by key party donors. Donations of at least $25,000 are requested. Gerald Hauck, a business associate of DeJoy, confirmed the event.

Trump won North Carolina’s 15 electoral votes, defeating Hilary Clinton by about 174,000 votes out of 4.5 million total votes cast in November. He appeared at several rallies in the state during the campaign, including stops in Fayetteville and Kinston. He visited North Charleston, S.C., to tour a Boeing Co. factory in February.

DeJoy is RNC’s national deputy chairman and was North Carolina State Chair for Trump Victory during last year’s campaign. He owns LDJ Global Strategies, which mainly invests in real estate, Hauck says. DeJoy was majority owner of High Point-based New Breed Logistics before its $615 million sale to XPO Logistics in 2014. His family foundation had about $27 million in assets as of Dec. 31, 2015, according to a government filing.

Asked about the Greensboro event, Dallas Woodhouse, executive director of the North Carolina Republican Party, said via email, “I don’t have any information on this.” A request for comment from the RNC was not immediately returned.
