President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence will appear in Cincinnati this summer as the 2020 presidential campaign season ramps up.

The appearance at U.S. Bank Arena Aug. 1 will be the president's fourth in Cincinnati since his 2015 campaign. Trump, a Republican, lost Hamilton County to Democrat Hillary Clinton by roughly 10 points in 2016, though he won Ohio overall by eight points that year.



Trump is expected to highlight the nation's economy, including its low unemployment rate, at the rally.

At past local rallies, opponents of the president have held protests decrying Trump's strict immigration stances, among other issues.



Ohio is shaping up to be a battleground state again this year. Democratic Party presidential primary hopefuls U.S. Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders have both made recent stops in the Queen City. Sanders also recently weighed in on a dispute between a nurse's union and University of Cincinnati Medical Center — a sign he is watching local politics and attempting to woo voters here.

Trump's "Keep America Great" rally will start at 7 p.m., with attendees able to enter the arena at 4 p.m. Trump's campaign is offering free tickets online.
