President Trump is planning to rally supporters in Green Bay later this month, his campaign announced today.
The event is slated for April 27 at the Resch Center — the same night as the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, which Trump previously said he’d be skipping for the third year in a row.
Trump announced earlier this month he planned to have a rally instead on the same night as this year’s event, but didn’t say where. Trump said at time the “dinner is too negative – I like positive things.”
State Dem Chair Martha Laning said the president was in for a “rude surprise” if he expected a warm welcome in Wisconsin, saying the state hasn’t forgotten his “attempts to rip health care coverage from our families and neighbors” or a “massive tax giveaway to millionaires and billionaires.”
“Trump is coming to Wisconsin to sell a record of broken promises and sow division in our state, and frankly, we’ve had enough,” Laning said.
The rally will be Trump’s 18th in Wisconsin, according to his campaign, and his third in Green Bay since he launched his presidential bid in June 2015.
Trump’s trip comes the same month that Dem presidential candidates U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders and former San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro visited the state. Dem U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke have also made stops in Wisconsin this year.
