President Donald Trump will make his first visit to Michigan this week since an Ypsilanti event in May, announcing that he will campaign in Freeland in Saginaw County.
Trump’s stop is scheduled for Thursday, one day after Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will stump in Michigan on Wednesday. Biden’s campaign hasn’t released details of the event yet. His last campaign stop here was in Detroit on March 9, the day before he won the Michigan Democratic primary. The Democrat has not done much in-person campaigning due to safety concerns during the COVID-19 pandemic, while Trump has been back on the trail for months.
The Republican is slated to appear at 7 p.m. at Avflight Saginaw.
Trump won Michigan by 10,704 votes over Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016 and the state is considered to be key in the 2020 race. Biden has a 7-point lead in the Michigan polling average, per FiveThirtyEight.
