MINNEAPOLIS — President Donald Trump has announced an upcoming rally in Minneapolis.
The president will visit Target Center on Thursday, Oct. 10 at 7 p.m. Trump is calling the rally "Keep America Great."
The doors will open at 4 p.m. and members of the public who are interested in going can register here.
“Minnesota is booming thanks to President Trump and jobs are coming back to the state,” said Michael Glassner, Chief Operating Officer of Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., in a press release. “President Trump has delivered on his promises, and he looks forward to celebrating those successes with the great men and women of Minnesota."
Trump plans to run for re-election in 2020. Nearly 20 Democrats are vying to run against him.
The visit comes at a controversial time for the president, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Tuesday the House will launch a formal impeachment inquiry of Trump over allegations that he pressured the leader of Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden's family.
Trump has called the impeachment inquiry a "Witch Hunt," and says he will release the "complete, unredacted" transcript of the call with Ukraine's president.
Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey issued the following statement regarding Trump's visit.
“Under ordinary circumstances, it would be an honor to welcome a sitting President of the United States to Minneapolis and to showcase all our city has to offer on the national stage. But these aren’t ordinary circumstances. Since taking office President Trump’s actions have been reprehensible and his rhetoric has made it clear that he does not value the perspectives or rights of Minneapolis’ diverse communities.
“On October 10, our entire city will stand not behind the President, but behind the communities and people who continue to make our city – and this country – great. While there is no legal mechanism to prevent the president from visiting, his message of hatred will never be welcome in Minneapolis.”
The MNGOP released the following statement regarding Trump's visit:
"We are overjoyed to welcome President Trump back to Minnesota for the fourth time in the last sixteen months. Trump has spent his first term fighting for Minnesota families and for this country. He has fulfilled his campaign promises to get our economy booming again, put America first, and has made this country great again. We are excited for the rally on October 10th and look forward to showing the Democrats how enthusiastic Minnesota Republicans are to send our 10 electoral votes to re-elect President Trump in 2020."
