The president will attend the National FFA Convention and Expo Saturday to address FFA members. President Donald Trump will speak during the ninth general session at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

The National FFA Organization traditionally invites the sitting president to make remarks during its annual national convention and expo. The first president to address FFA was Former President Harry S. Truman in 1957. Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter spoke in 1974 and 1978, respectively.

As Vice President, George H.W. Bush spoke in 1987 followed by a pre-recorded message from President Ronald Reagan in 1988. Then, as president, H.W. Bush spoke in 1991. First Lady Michelle Obama also brought pre-recorded greetings in 2015, and Vice President Mike Pence did the same at last year's convention.

The event is private and closed for registered attendees.
