The irrepressible Donald Trump is bringing his “Trump Train” to Pennsylvania as the state’s voters prepare to vote in the April 26 primary.

Trump will be visiting Western Pennsylvania on Wednesday evening — first for an hour-long interview with FOX News anchor Sean Hannityat theSoldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum in Pittsburgh, and then for a 7 p.m. rallyat the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.

Both events are free and open to the public, according to Trump’s website.

The latest polls show Trump with a strong lead in the Republican race in Pennsylvania. On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton is projected to beat outher opponent Bernie Sanders.

Trump has not announced any plans to visit Philadelphia.

Scenes of mayhem have become increasingly common at the billionaire New York businessman’s rallies, which have been frequently interrupted by protesters, many of them Democrats, who say Trump’s controversial remarks on immigrants and Muslims are dangerous.

The 69-year-old candidate has sometimes encouraged his supporters using violence on protesters, and on at least one occasion said that he would like to punch a protester himself.
