President Trump's campaign has confirmed that he is coming back to Phoenix.  

The President's office confirmed Wednesday morning that he will be holding a rally at 7 p.m. at the Phoenix Convention Center on Aug. 22, 2017.    

Those interested in attending can get general admission tickets here. 

Trump last stopped at the Phoenix Convention Center on August 31, 2016, ahead of the presidential election. 

The news of a Valley visit comes on the heels of Trump speaking out about former Sheriff Joe Arpaio and a possible pardon.  

In a Sunday interview, Trump reportedly said he was "seriously considering" pardoning the former Maricopa County Sheriff in connection with his criminal contempt case.    

Mayor Stanton says he hopes President Trump delays his Aug. 22 visit. See the full statement below:
