President Donald Trump will be in Minnesota on Tax Day to highlight the economy and his tax bill. He is expected to attend a roundtable discussion at Nuss Truck & Equipment in Burnsville. We learned Sunday night that Governor Tim Walz will "continue the tradition of greeting the president" at the airport. The governor said he will use it as an opportunity to advocate for federal disaster aid for Minnesota.The visit is also a chance to lay the groundwork for 2020. In 2016, Trump lost to Hillary Clinton in Minnesota by 1.5 percentage points. The state has not voted for a Republican for president since Richard Nixon in 1972. CAIR-Minnesota (Council on American-Islamic Relations) is planning to hold a rally at 11:30 a.m. on Monday at the same location, according to a press release. CAIR-MN calls the rally "peaceful" and a way to show "solidarity" with communities impacted by the Trump administration. The organization references recent controversy surrounding Rep. Ilhan Omar as an instance of these impacts.
