At WKRN News 2 Nashville, "Presidential hopeful Donald Trump speaks at Nashville event":

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Presidential hopeful Donald Trump will be in Nashville Saturday to speak at the National Federation of Republican Assemblies conference.

The National Federation of Republican Assemblies is a grassroots organization who are meeting in Nashville to endorse a presidential candidate.

The event will be held at Rocketown, a Christian-based entertainment facility, which is located at 601 4th Ave. South.

Louie Gohmert and Dr. Ming Wang  are also scheduled to speak at the event.

Immigrant rights activists are planning to protest Trump’s visit by holding a rally outside the venue.

The Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition and Workers’ Dignity, two local advocacy organizations, plan to march 200 to 500 immigrant community members, led by a mariachi band, from the Music City Walk of Fame Park to Rocketown beginning at 10:30 a.m.

Prior to the event, a prominent message for Donald Trump was displayed on a sign for a south Nashville immigration lawyer, which reads “Donald Trump, make Nashville great again. Please leave soon.”

Elliott Ozment called the sign a “collaborative effort” with some close friends to come up with the message after learning that Trump was scheduled to speak this weekend in downtown Nashville...
Also at CNN, "Donald Trump courts tea party at Nashville straw poll":
(CNN)Donald Trump took his colorful campaign to Nashville on Saturday, where he courted a constituency that some say he is tailor-made for: the tea party.

He is competing in a presidential straw poll and addressed the National Federation of Republican Assemblies, a group that boasts it was "the tea party before there was a tea party."

Trump's appearance was highly anticipated at the conservative gathering: As a candidate, he's hitting the same notes -- anger at conventional politics, contempt for Washington and distrust of special interests and lobbyists -- that propelled the tea party movement in 2010.

"You have not been treated fairly," Trump told the gathering Saturday. "You know, people talk about the tea party, and you talk about marginalized? At least I have a microphone where I can fight back. You people don't. The tea party people are incredible people. These are people who work hard and love the country and they get beat up all the time by the media."
