Trump to visit Twin Cities

President Donald Trump is expected to visit the Twin Cities on Monday, April 15, according to a GOP official who wished to remain anonymous because details are still being finalized.

The Federal Aviation Administration has issued a “VIP Movement Notification” for Minneapolis for Monday.

Trump will highlight tax reform during the April 15 visit, the GOP official said, which falls on the same day as the deadline for tax filing. No other details were available Wednesday morning.

The president has touted the federal tax overhaul known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act as one of his biggest accomplishments. It was passed in December 2017.

Trump narrowly lost Minnesota in the 2016 presidential election. He visited the state twice last year. Those visits included fundraising efforts and rallies in support of candidates in Duluth and Rochester.
