President Trump will hold a campaign rally next week just outside of Pittsburgh, marking the 20th campaign rally Trump has held in Pennsylvania since 2015.
“This rally will provide an excellent opportunity for the President to connect once again with hard working Americans in the local community,” Michael Glassner, executive director of Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., said in a statement. “President Trump looks forward to an exciting visit to the Pittsburgh area to deliver the amazing news about our booming economy now that America is once again open for business.”
“As more and more businesses across Pennsylvania, and the country, report new bonuses, wage increases, and investments in our economy, this rally will be a great moment to celebrate the success of the President’s historic tax cuts, and look ahead to more great victories for the American people under the President’s fearless leadership,” he added.
The rally also comes as Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District, which includes several southern Pittsburgh suburbs, is facing a special election next month.
In January, Trump visited the 18th Congressional District and expressed support for GOP candidate Rick Saccone on Twitter.
“Will be going to Pennsylvania today in order to give my total support to RICK SACCONE, running for Congress in a Special Election (March 13),” Trump tweeted. “Rick is a great guy. We need more Republicans to continue our already successful agenda!”
Trump's latest rally will be held on Feb. 21 at Ambridge Area Senior High School.
