President Donald Trump will be visiting the swing state of Wisconsin next for his 2020 campaign on April 27. The rally will be held at the Resch Center in the city of Green Bay.
Wisconsin is a state the president likes a lot. He said so during a visit to the Foxconn Facility in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin on June 28, 2018. He was speaking to Terry Guo, Taiwanese founder and chairman of Foxconn and employees of the world’s largest contract manufacturer of electronics.
Important Swing State
There is a lot for the president to like about Wisconsin and its voters.
Historically a swing state, in 2016 the president won Wisconsin by a slight margin of approximately 22,748 votes. That’s by only 0.7 points. That small margin helped him win Wisconsin’s electoral votes, thus helping push him to victory.
It was a very huge deal. The 2016 electoral vote was won with a combined 77,744 votes from Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, over the Democratic candidate.
Notably, over 1.7 million ghost voters are in California, according to Judicial Watch, a Washington-based legal watchdog. California has a complicated voter profile, but it’s safe to say a larger number of California voters lean to the left. Several counties in the state have more registered voters than living voters.
So, swing states are an important campaign stop. President Trump is well aware.
‘You’re Among Friends’
Wisconsin’s state motto is simple and sincere—only one word: “Forward.” Their tourism slogan is a bit friendlier, and hopefully for Trump, true to its words: “You’re among friends.”
The president tweeted about the Wisconsin rally. “Big crowd expected, much to talk about.”
I will be going to Green Bay, Wisconsin, for a really big Rally on Saturday Evening. Big crowd expected, much to talk about. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

“President Trump looks forward to sharing the successes of his administration with the great people of Wisconsin,” said Michael Glassner, the executive director of the Donald Trump for President campaign committee.
“Under President Trump’s leadership, paychecks are now growing twice as fast for those in the bottom half of the income spectrum. Unemployment has hit generational lows, and the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement will open Canadian dairy markets to farmers all across Wisconsin.”
Earlier in April, the president told FoxNews reporters outside the White House that he would not be attending the White House Correspondents Dinner, but instead would be holding a rally in Wisconsin. His campaign manager reiterated and confirmed that on Twitter.
This will be an EPIC rally in Green Bay Wisconsin on April 27th! We will broadcast it live so millions can watch @realDonaldTrump instead of the boring WHCD. This dinner is almost worse than Hollywood’s endless self-serving award shows. https://t.co/k6IZEtmrQ7
