Donald Trump to Headline GOP Lincoln Day Dinner


BLOOMFIELD HILLS — Oakland County Lincoln Day Dinner Chairman David Trott announced today that Donald J. Trump will be the keynote speaker for the 2013 Lincoln Day Dinner to be held on May 21.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to share my thoughts and views with the Oakland County Republican Party and the great state of Michigan,” said Trump. “As the oldest, largest and one of the most influential Lincoln Day Dinners in the country, I could not have been more pleased to receive this invitation.”

“The Lincoln Day Dinner is a tradition Oakland County has celebrated for 124 years, and it is only fitting that our keynote address is delivered by one of the most celebrated and recognizable entrepreneurs and philanthropists in the world,” Trott said.

He is also a best-selling author, and star and co-producer of the NBC hit series, The Apprentice. He is a graduate of The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and currently serves as the chairman and president of The Trump Organization.

“This is the don’t-miss event of the year for Michigan,” said Jim Thienel, Oakland County Republican Party chairman.
