Gov. Rick Scott and former Florida Congressman Allen West will join President Donald Trump as speakers Friday at the National Rifle Association's annual convention in Atlanta.

Trump, Scott and West are among the speakers who will address the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action leadership forum that begins at 12:30 p.m. Friday at the Georgia World Congress Center, according to the NRA.

Trump is the first president to address the NRA's annual convention since Ronald Reagan.

Other notable speakers at the Friday forum will include U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. West, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, served one term as a Florida congressman, losing a re-election bid in 2012.

He moved to Texas in 2015.
