President Trump will travel to New Hampshire later this week for the latest stop in his 2020 reelection campaign. In a news release Sunday, the Trump campaign announced the president will be delivering remarks to a crowd of supporters at a ‘Make America Great Again’ rally at the Portsmouth International Airport this Saturday.
According to reports, the president is expected to tout his record setting accomplishments as well as his efforts to rebuild, restore and renew our nation.
The event marks the president’s second rally since the start of the coronavirus pandemic and comes as health figures show the number of COVID-19 cases in the state have begun to see a slight decline in recent days.
However, the campaign confirmed there will be ample access to hand sanitizer and all attendees will be provided with face masks that they will be strongly encouraged to wear.

Some of the president’s supporters suggested the outbreak is just not enough for them to consider missing the rally.
“I’m a high risk guy, I’m not concerned one bit. You know, I mean I took a beating for 22 years in the Marines to my body, I’m not worried about it. You know something? Life’s too short, you gotta enjoy. It’s great to be an American, where you can make those decisions.”
— State Rep. Al Baldasaro, (R) Londonderry, New Hampshire
The upcoming event will mark the president’s first visit to the state since last February. He narrowly lost New Hampshire in 2016 and it’s, once again, expected to be a key battleground state in the November election.
In a recent statement, Trump 2020 national press secretary Hogan Gidley said the campaign is looking forward to seeing many “freedom-loving patriots coming to the rally and celebrating America.”
