Donald Trump to visit NH

Real estate mogul and reality television star Donald Trump next month will make his first appearance in New Hampshire since 2011.

Trump will appear at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics and New England Council's "Politics and Eggs" breakfast event on Jan. 21, 2014 at the NHIOP, according to

Trump's visit to the first-in-the-nation primary state is sure to spark speculation that he is again considering running for President.

Trump seriously considered running in 2011, when he visited New Hampshire several times after questioning whether President Barack Obama was born in the United States and calling for the President to release his birth certificate.

When Obama did release the certificate, on a day that Trump arrived in Portsmouth, Trump credited himself with forcing the presidential disclosure.

Neil Levesque, NHIOP executive director, told TIME, "Everyone who has run for president has spoken here. "It's pretty much the first thing you do when you enter the Granite State."

Levesque told TIME he and the New England Council approached Trump about attending the event, which brings together the business community and political activists, several months ago. "We're very excited about it," he said.
