Trump plans Pearl Harbor Day rally aboard the USS Yorktown

GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump will mark the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor with a campaign rally aboard a World War II-era aircraft carrier.
Trump’s event is scheduled for Monday aboard the USS Yorktown in Charleston Harbor in Mount Pleasant, S.C.

The ship is a recurring backdrop for White House hopefuls visiting South Carolina.
Trump will return to the state next weekend for an event in Aiken, S.C., The Associated Press reported, where he is booked for a forum on Saturday over constitutional issues moderated by state Attorney General Alan Wilson.

Trump boasts a 6-point lead in South Carolina over other Republican White House hopefuls, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of samplings.

He earns 29 percent, compared with 22.7 percent for retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, his closest competition in South Carolina. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) currently ranks in third place with 13.3 percent.

Trump has also previously used naval battleships as scenery for his speeches on the campaign trail. He delivered an address on national security from the decks of the USS Iowa in Los Angeles earlier this year.
