Trump Thinks He’s a Rock Star and Signs a Woman’s Shoe as He Lands in Wisconsin for Fundraiser
Donald Trump loves to reminisce about his upset Wisconsin win in the 2016 election after Democrat Hillary Clinton took the state for granted.
He’s determined not to make the same mistake himself.
Once part of the Rust Belt’s blue wall meant to keep Trump out of the White House, Wisconsin now counts as a pivotal state for the president’s reelection chances in the view of his campaign.
Trump just landed in Wisconsin for the sixth time since taking office. It’s one of two Midwest stops that are designed to warm up Trump’s 2020 campaign engine with fundraisers. He’ll also use the visit to try to showcase the strong economy and push for Congress to pass the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which could squarely impact Wisconsin.
Trump became the first Republican to win Wisconsin since Ronald Reagan in 1984, defeating Clinton by just 22,748 votes. Along with Michigan and Pennsylvania, the state was meant to be the Democrats’ safety net against Trump, but Clinton failed to visit the state even once during the general election campaign — a fact the president has mentioned time and time again.
“The Republicans haven’t won the great state of Wisconsin in decades,” Trump incongruously reminisced in Florida in March. “I went there a lot and in all fairness, her husband Bill, who’s a good politician — they didn’t listen to him. He said, ‘You better go to Wisconsin.'”
