President Trump is completely focused on running the country but also has his mind on the campaign trail for his reelection. He has many upcoming rallies scheduled across the United States with hundreds of thousands of supporters attending. Two of the main ones which are the most recent upcoming events are July 17 in Greenville North Carolina, and Cincinnati, Ohio on August 1st.
President Trump is looking to defend the Key Rust Belt States where he held an outstanding lead over Hillary Clinton in 2016. He will focus hard on the Rust Belt States which include, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. The announcement was made by the Trump campaign, Vice President Mike Pence will be joining President Trump for the “Keep America Great” Rally at the U.S. Bank Arena in Ohio, on August 1st. This will make it the 29th time President Trump holds a rally in Ohio since his 2015 presidential bid, according to the campaign managers. President Trump won Ohio by 9 points which were 450,000 votes in the 2016 Election.
President Trump’s campaign will hold the August 1st event the day after round two of the Democratic debates for the primaries. Twenty of the Democratic candidates will stop off in Detroit Michigan over the course of two days and take the stage for their campaigns on July 30 and 31 which we can all expect a great rebuttal from our president.
Michigan had not had a Republican win that state since 1988 and Trump took the state in the 2016 election by a little over 10,000 votes. The only problem is in the 2018 midterms, Democrats won. Brian Reisinger, a Republican operative, stated, “There’s no question they are in a better position than they were in 2016. It’s a sign that the Republican Party needs to be hitting on all cylinders.”
President Trump’s first stop comes on July 17 in Greenville North Carolina for a campaign rally, which is set on the same day as Robert Mueller is set to give his testimony before the two House committees. North Carolina is a key battleground state which Trump needs to hold. In 2016, he won the state by 3.5 points in the 2016 Presidential Election and wants to keep the state in his back pocket. He will show up to rally up the support he needs as his campaign is on fire!
President Trump is not worried about Mueller’s testimony as all he has to do is show up to rally his campaign. He sent out a tweet last Tuesday, to sum up how he feels, “Robert Mueller is being asked to testify yet again. He said he could only stick to the Report, & that is what he would and must do. After so much testimony & total transparency, this Witch Hunt must now end. No more Do-Overs. No Collusion, No Obstruction. The Great Hoax is dead!”
In a press release, Michael Glassner, the COO of the campaign stated, “President Trump looks forward to returning to North Carolina and sharing the successes of the Trump presidency. North Carolina has one of the hottest economies in the nation, and that is directly attributable to the pro-growth, deregulatory policies of this administration. With one of the largest military populations in the nation, President Trump is eager to talk directly to the military men and women who have made this country the greatest on earth.”
The Military strongly supports their Commander in Chief as well as the Veterans who served this great nation previously. There is so much President Trump has done to change the course of the Military to make it the strongest military in the world. The United States Military is feared again as in the days of President Ronald Regan’s administration. Our military men and women are taken seriously again as all it took was just simple appreciation and the love from a great leader. Wherever President Trump goes, today’s Military and yesterday’s veterans who serve and served proudly have massive cheers for the Commander in Chief.
The Presidential race is not the only race President Trump will be pushing as North Carolina’s Republican Senator Thom Tillis is looking to win his second term in the Senate race for 2020, so the president will be pushing for Tillis to win. It is unknown at this time if Tillis will appear at the rally in North Carolina on the 17th, but he will most likely show up if he is not busy with other campaign affairs.
