Trump begins most extensive trip since COVID-19
Written by Site Hub on May 6, 2020
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, Trump has remained close to the White House. In fact, since lockdown restrictions began Trump has only left Washington, DC twice. That is set to change this week, however, as Trump is heading to Arizona to complete his most extensive journey since the start of COVID-19 restrictions.
The first stop on Trump’s visit will be to the Honeywell aerospace facility in Phoenix, Arizona. The facility is currently making respirator masks for health care workers. The trip is believed to showcase the efforts done by many heroic Americans to fights the spread of COVID-19. The trip will also be used to reignite Trump’s presidential campaign, as Trump expressed his desire to start re-election campaign rallies as soon as possible.
Trump carried Arizona in the 2016 election but polls are suggesting the state is currently divided between Biden and Trump. Trump’s planned trip will no doubt be an attempt to try to sway Arizona towards voting for the Republican party. Trump is also thought to travel to Ohio later this week, though an official plan has not yet been announced.
On Trump’s safety, the White House made an announcement on Monday that all personnel that come into contact with Trump will be tested for COVID-19.
