Businessman Donald Trump, who on Wednesday announced he was forming an exploratory committee ahead of a potential run for president, will give a speech about education in Iowa next month.
According to the Des Moines Register
, Trump will speak April 8 in a theater on the campus of Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa.
Trump will make other stops during the visit, although the Register report did not provide further details.
Trump is also scheduled to visit Iowa on May 15, when he will speak at the Pottawattamie County GOP's Lincoln-Reagan Day Dinner, reports the Register.
On Wednesday, Trump announced
he is considering the possibility of running for the White House on the Republican ticket.
"I am the only one who can make America truly great again," he said in a statement.
Forming an exploratory committee is the first step in running for president, as it will allow Trump to start raising money and assembling a staff.
"I have a great love for our country, but it is a country that is in serious trouble," Trump said. "Americans deserve better than what they get from their politicians who are all talk and no action."
Last month, Trump said there is a "good chance"
he would run for the White House.
"There's a good chance I'm going to go for it," Trump said. "I'm looking at it very strongly. The country is being scoffed at all over the world. You look at what's going on and our military — they're not funding them properly and we're not fighting properly. We're not doing anything properly frankly, between Obamacare and all the other problems we have. It's something that I could straighten out so fast and so easy it's not that difficult. So I am looking at it very seriously."
