Washington (CNN) – Real estate mogul Donald Trump, whether he makes a run for president or not, is stepping up his political travels.
Trump's office confirms that he will address the South Florida Tea Party rally in Boca Raton April 16th, one of a number of tea party events planned around the country during the weekend before the tax deadline.
His appearance is the third event he plans to attend in early primary or caucus states important to the GOP. He will speak at the Iowa Republican Party's Lincoln Day dinner in Des Moines, and plans a June appearance at the traditional "Politics and Eggs" breakfast series in New Hampshire. Both are traditional stops for likely candidates.
The Florida event is the Tea Party group's 3rd annual Tax Day rally, planned for Boca Raton's Sanborn Square.
South Florida Tea Party Chapter chairman Everett Wilkinson said he expects Trump to discuss tax reduction, and "his thoughts about how to get our country moving again".
"In every poll the Tea Party had, Donald Trump came out number one," Wilkinson said in a message to supporters. "America is tired of politicians giving speeches. We want to hear from people that have proven business experience. This should be an exciting day for America."
Trump has also maintained a busy non-political schedule, including a motivational speech in Spain and regular appearances on his NBC reality television series "Celebrity Apprentice." Despite hints he could enter the GOP field and seek the 2012 nomination for president, he has also been added to Fox News' lineup as a weekly guest.
Trump special counsel Michael Cohen said he received 87 speaking requests for Trump Tuesday. Cohen founded the ShouldTrumpRun website that's not affiliated with Trump's company, and said that 84 of the 87 event requests were political.
