Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump may or may not be returning to Loudoun County in October. Who really knows with the Trump campaign?

On Monday afternoon, a group calling itself “Friends of DT” touted an Oct. 16 event at Trump’s new golf course in Sterling. By Monday night, FriendsofDT.us, which had highlighted the event just several hours earlier, showed only a blank “Coming Soon” page.

Before it was updated to the "Coming Soon" landing screen, Friends of DT’s website noted: “Come join us at Trump National to meet and discuss key issues that are critical to our national survival with Presidential candidate, Mr. Donald Trump. We expect large numbers of supporters from diverse backgrounds to show the nation that Virginia, Maryland, and DC are behind Mr. Trump in his quest to 'Make America Great Again!'”

The Times-Mirror is working to contact the Trump campaign.

A Virginia-based conservative blog, The Bull Elephant, is reporting conflicted accounts about the supposed event.

Trump leads the crowded Republican presidential field in every major poll, and he's been drawing tens of thousands of attendees at rallies across the country. His sea of supporters have dwarfed those of his GOP counterparts.

The real estate mogul and reality TV star was in Loudoun County earlier this summer, headlining a grand opening for his golf course.
