LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — President Donald Trump is coming back to Las Vegas to speak at the Republican Jewish Coalition's annual leadership meeting, the nonprofit says.

The event takes place on March 14 at the Venetian Ballroom inside the Venetian Hotel Resort and Casino. It is not open to the public.

Last year, Trump also spoke at the RJC event.

Seconds into his 2019 speech, a group of around 10 protesters interrupted him with chants of "Jews are here to stay. Occupation is a plague." Those protesters represented the IfNotNow activist organization.

More recently, the president was in Las Vegas in February ahead of the Nevada Democratic caucuses on Feb. 22.

On Feb. 20, he spoke at Hope for Prisoners graduation at Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's headquarters. The nonprofit program is one of the most successful prisoner re-entry programs in the country.

Then on Feb. 21, Trump held a "Keep America Great" rally the Las Vegas Convention Center.
