President Trump campaigns in Duluth

  • Trump rolls out 2020 campaign slogan


    Donald Trump said he would have no trouble winning Minnesota in 2020, saying he will run on a slogan of "Keep America Great.''

    Trump's comments came during an hour-long roundtable with Republican lawmakers and steel workers in Duluth Wednesday night.
     
    Trump made news earlier Wednesday when he signed an executive order ending immigrant family separations that earlier this week brought backlashes and harsh criticisms from Democrats and Republicans.

    He did not address immigration or the order during the roundtable.
     
    Trump's comments — which included praising the state, despite having difficulty pronouncing those at the table with him — came just before he is to address a crowd of thousands at a campaign rally at Amsoil Arena.

    The arena holds about 8,200 people and authorities said about 2,000 people were turned away.

    That rally is expected to kick off about 7 p.m. The president is expected to stump for Pete Stauber, a GOP candidate for Minnesota's Eighth Congressional District.
