WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump will visit New Orleans on Monday to address the American Farm Bureau Federation's annual convention. The planned trip to New Orleans, confirmed to The Advocate Wednesday by a White House spokesman, comes amid a partial shutdown of the federal government and a continued standoff between Trump and Democratic Party leaders in Washington over funding for Trump's proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
