After Tulsa, Trump Will Head Next to Arizona and Wisconsin
After Saturday’s Tulsa rally, President Trump now heads to Arizona for a “Students for Trump” event in Phoenix and a border event in Yuma on Tuesday, and then to Wisconsin for a speech at a shipyard on Thursday.
The coronavirus and the nationwide riots over the last month have unquestionably derailed the campaign season. Saturday’s rally was the first since March, when the virus shut down the country.
Now, the President is heading back to his normal travels across the country and speaking to millions of potential voters, both in-person and online. Trump is clearly most comfortable speaking off-the-cuff in his signature rally mode, and his being back on the campaign trail should help him, as his polling has started to turn in favor of Joe Biden.
AZCentral reports that Trump campaign staffers and PAC members see his visit to Arizona as a way to show the president bringing the country back from the pandemic and fulfilling promises to voters.
“I think what the president has to tout in Arizona is, look at the great American comeback we’re seeing,” said Keith Schipper, a spokesman for Trump Victory, pointing to the sharp decline in Arizona’s unemployment rate in May as a sign. Schipper also said that Trump “has plenty to talk about (in Yuma) about the work he’s doing to build the border wall to protect us and keep us safe here at home.”
While we are still far away from Election Day, it’s still good for Trump to play like he’s behind and campaign as only he can.
