GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump surprised a crowd of ArtPrize visitors at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum Friday afternoon.

Part of the tour included a stop in the Oval Office – a replica of one of the world’s most famous rooms – that’s inside the museum.

People were heard screaming as Trump made his way through the museum and then went outside to pay his respects to the late President Ford and his wife Betty.

Trump’s plane landed at the Gerald R. Ford International Airport just before noon Friday.

A Trump campaign adviser mentioned former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani and General Michael Flynn in a tweet about the visit.

A motorcade including the Kent County Sheriff’s Department, Michigan State Police and Secret Service escorted Trump to an undisclosed location. Sources tell 24 Hour News 8 Trump will tour a factory in the Grand Rapids area Friday afternoon and then attend a private fundraiser at a downtown hotel.

Trump is then scheduled to stop in Novi for a rally at 5 p.m.

6 News will be at the rally and have reports at 5, 6, and 11.
