The sounds of military helicopters have been heard across Los Angeles this afternoon. They have even been spotted landing in the Dodger Stadium parking lot. What’s up? Looks like this is in preparation for a presidential visit this week.
At least that’s the speculation on Twitter. President Donald Trump is scheduled to make his first California visit since he was elected on Tuesday and part of Wednesday. He is expected to visit San Diego to look at prototypes of the border wall he wants to build and also attend a Westside fundraiser, according to the L.A. Times
The Dodger Stadium parking lot has been used in the past as a presidential landing pad. Former President Obama’s chopper made at least one stop at the stadium during his two terms in office. Military pilots have also landed on the parking lot during training before presidential visits.
