President Trump will reportedly visit Minnesota and Wisconsin next Monday, on the opening day of Democrats’ national convention which was to be in Milwaukee but will now be virtual because of COVID-19. Minnesota Republican leaders aren’t commenting yet on what analysts call Trump’s “counter-programming” visits to battleground states. Minnesota D-F-L Party Chairman Ken Martin — also a vice chair of the Democratic National Committee — says President Trump will figure into Democrats’ message, regardless of whether he visits Minnesota and Wisconsin. “A big part of our message next week is not just gonna be about Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and their vision for this country, but it’s gonna be about the disastrous record that Donald Trump’s had these last three-and-a-half years,” Martin says.
During a Wednesday night tele-rally with Wisconsin supporters, the president said he’d be in Oshkosh on Monday. Trump was last in Minnesota in October 2019 for a rally at Target Center in Minneapolis.
