News 12 Then: Donald Trump’s last big visit to our area

DALTON, Georgia (WDEF) – As the President prepares to visit Chattanooga on Sunday, we wanted to remind you it’s not his first trip to our area.

27 years ago, the pre-President made a high-profile, social trip to the Dalton area.

He had just given an engagement ring to Dalton native Marla Maples.
