City prepares as President Trump plans to campaign in Winston-Salem

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — As President Donald Trump prepares to make a campaign stop in Winston-Salem, the police department said they're working with the secret service to finalize details of his visit. 

The event website is promoting tickets, but it's not clear how many people will be allowed at the event. The governor's most recent executive order limits indoor gatherings to 25 people and outdoor gatherings to 50 people.

Winston-Salem Mayor Allen Joines said his office hasn't been in touch with the Trump campaign but hopes the event complies with the governor's executive order.

"It sounds as if it could be a fairly large event. We of course are concerned about the size of any event like that," said Joines. 

Joines said the city police department has a procedure they typically follow when enforcing executive orders in the past.
