Trump is Coming to Cleveland Monday to Host a Pre-Election Rally


  • Scene Archives

The White House confirmed last night that president Trump will be traveling the country for a string of 11 rallies in eight states before the midterm elections, including Cleveland this Monday. He won't be around for long, though, as he has events in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and Cape Girardeau, Missouri, also scheduled for Monday.

His last visit to Cleveland took place before the May primary, when he held a presentation at Public Hall to tout the Republican tax plan and headlined a subsequent Republican Party fundraiser. He visited Ohio earlier this month to promote Republican gubernatorial candidate Mike DeWine, U.S. Senate candidate Jim Renacci, and congressman Steve Chabot. This was after he incorrectly endorsed the wrong candidate for Ohio's 12th District special election on Twitter.

Some studies have shown Ohio has an increasing dislike for the current commander in chief. Of course, blue wins in the upcoming election would allow Democrats to remain competitive in Ohio, and potentially change the direction of Ohio's electoral power in 2020.

Trump's rally is scheduled to take place at 3 p.m. at the IX Center, and those interested in attending can register for tickets here. Anyone can register and reserve seats for this free event, but people are only able to reserve two tickets per email address.
