President Trump is set to continue his five state tour ahead of November general elections, with his sights set on North Dakota.
The president will arrive in the ‘Peace Garden State’ Wednesday evening, where he will hold a ‘Make America Great Again’ rally in Fargo.
He is expected to appear in support of GOP Representative Kevin Cramer, who is running for election in the Senate and is looking to flip the seat of Democrat incumbent Heidi Heitkamp.
Local media caught up with one retired service member, who said he is ecstatic the president will be paying their city a visit.
Retired Colonel Don Howell of Fargo said, “I’m just really happy to be part of something that will have an impact, not only for North Dakota, but for the great Midwest…but it’s really for America.”
Following the rally, President Trump will be spending his night in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
In the meantime, the president will welcome his Portuguese counterpart — Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa — to the White House Wednesday afternoon to hold a bilateral meeting.
Earlier this month, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Portugal is an important NATO ally, and the discussions will focus on the close bond between the two countries.
