Los Angeles drivers are bracing for snarled traffic and street closures Tuesday as President Trump arrives to raise money for next year’s campaign.
After spending the morning in the Bay Area, the president will be flying into Los Angeles International Airport about 3:30 p.m.
From LAX he will travel by helicopter to an undisclosed location in downtown L.A.
Several streets have been closed since 4 a.m. in the downtown area in anticipation of the president’s visit.
The street closures — which include Figueroa Street from 6th Street to 8th Street, Wilshire Boulevard from Flower Street to Beaudry Avenue, and 7th Street from Flower Street to Bixel Street — will remain in place until midday Wednesday, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.Closures begin at 4 a.m. and will remain closed until midday on Wednesday.

The president’s plans for Wednesday morning have not been released, but Politico reports he’s planning a fundraising breakfast in L.A. and a lunch in San Diego.
None of the scheduled events will be open to the public.
