CHARLOTTE, N.C. — ABC11 has learned that President Barack Obama will visit Charlotte on Tuesday.

The President will deliver remarks at the American Legion’s 96th National Convention.

“The American Legion is honored that the nation’s commander-in-chief will address those of us who have served in uniform,” said American Legion National Commander Daniel M. Dellinger. “With so many important issues ranging from the state of VA health care to the Global War on Terrorism, it is vitally important that The American Legion hear from our national leaders. In addition to the president, Sen. Bernie Sanders, VA Secretary Robert McDonald, Sen. Richard Burr, Rep. Jeff Miller, Oliver North, Montel Williams and many other distinguished guests will be addressing our Legion delegates and their family members next week. We expect to have a productive and enjoyable convention.”
