Trump visited the Valley multiple times during his 2016 campaign, including a high-profile speech at the convention center in August and an earlier date in Fountain Hills that included arrests of protesters who chained themselves to vehicles blocking a roadway in the area.
The rally is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. at the Phoenix Convention Center in downtown Phoenix.
12 News has learned Phoenix police are worried about so-called trouble spots including the Capitol, the Confederate monument, a portion of Interstate 10, light rail and other parts of downtown Phoenix.
