President Trump coming to Tucson on Monday after first trip postponed

TUCSON (KVOA) - After his visit was postponed due to contracting the COVID-19 virus, President Donald Trump is scheduled to visit Tucson on Monday for a campaign event.

Back on Oct. 1, the Trump campaign shared that the president was planning to visit the Old Pueblo and Flagstaff to speak at two Make America Great Again events in Arizona on Oct. 5 and 6. After Trump and first lady Melania Trump tested positive for COVID-19 later that day, the campaign announced that the rallies would be postponed to a later date.

With Arizona expected to be a key battleground state for this upcoming election, Trump is scheduled to deliver remarks at Tucson International Airport at 3 p.m. Monday with gates opening at 12 p.m.

People who wish to attend can register for general admission at events.donaldjtrump.com.

The president will also hold a rally in Prescott earlier that day. That rally will begin at noon at the Prescott Regional Airport.

Trump last stopped in Arizona on Sept. 14 for a "Latinos for Trump" roundtable event.

The president's son, Donald Trump Jr. stopped by the Old Pueblo Wednesday for a MAGA rally. The event had about 300 people in attendance.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and running mate Kamala Harris made their first campaign stop in Arizona Oct. 8 for a rally in the Phoenix area.
