The presumptive Republican presidential nominee has a trade speech scheduled at an aluminum facility in Monessen, Pa., Near Pittsburgh.
The title, said his campaign: “Declaring American Economic Independence.”.
In previous trips to Pennsylvania and other industrial states, Trump has argued that “bad trade deals” have undermined steel and other heavy industries, and he has vowed to bring blue collar jobs back to depressed areas.
Once a swing state, Pennsylvania hasn’t backed the Republican nominee since George H.W. Bush in 1988, thanks largely to voters in the heavily populated suburbs of Philadelphia.
While Trump has many appearances in western areas around Pittsburgh, state political analysts say he will also need to do well in the Philadelphia area.
