-- Unlike Des Moines, Iowa and Manchester, New Hampshire, Laredo, Texas isn’t a typical stop on the presidential campaign trail.
But the border union that was expected to host Trump announced on Thursday morning that they're backing out. Trump was going to meet with the union and tour the border.
"Our intentions to meet with Mr. Trump was to provide a 'Boots on the Ground' perspective to not only Mr. Trump, but to the media that would be in attendance at this event," the National Border Patrol Council Local 2455 wrote in a statement. "Just to be clear, an endorsement was never discussed for any presidential candidate."
Still, Trump says the trip is on. He is scheduled to land around 1 p.m. A campaign spokesperson tells ABC News that Trump plans to meet with the mayor and police department of Laredo, Texas.
The billionaire business mogul whose controversial comments about Mexican immigrants have been the talk of the campaign in recent weeks will receive a briefing from Hector Garza, president of the local chapter of the National Border Patrol Council, according to Trump's campaign.
Trump’s visit to the town, where the population is over 90 percent Hispanic, will begin with a town hall meeting in which law enforcement officers will give The Donald their own views on the situation at the border. Trump also plans to hold a news conference.
