President Donald Trump will visit Key West on Thursday to tour a federal anti-drug trafficking agency near the Truman Waterfront on Navy property, a Navy spokeswoman said.
Trump is scheduled to land at 11:45 a.m. Thursday at the Boca Chica air field on the naval base and then head to Key West to tour the Joint Interagency Task Force South, which monitors illicit drug-trafficking. Key West Mayor Craig Cates is among the local officials who will greet the president.
Trump will depart from Boca Chica after the tour.
The Key West visit is expected to last about two hours. City workers have started to set up wooden "no parking" sawhorses along Atlantic Boulevard and along White and United streets, a sign that Trump's motorcade will take South Roosevelt Boulevard off of U.S. 1 to get to Key West.
