Trump To Visit Montana Second Time In Two Months

Aug 29, 2018


President Donald Trump is coming back to Montana.

Trump's campaign announced Wednesday the president will hold a rally in Billings on Sept. 6.

It will be the second time in two months that Trump has visited Montana in support of Republican U.S. Senate candidate Matt Rosendale's campaign.

Trump appeared July 5 in Great Falls, where he attacked Democratic U.S. Sen. Jon Tester and other key Democrats like Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

“You deserve a senator who doesn’t just talk like he’s from Montana, you deserve a senator who actually votes like he’s from Montana,” Trump said at the rally in Great Falls in July.

Thousands of people who had lined up for hours in the sweltering heat had to be turned away when the arena in Great Falls reached capacity.

The Trump campaign says the president will talk about the new U.S.-Mexico trade agreement and his economic and immigration policies, in addition to promoting Rosendale's effort to defeat Tester.

Trump's Billings rally will be held at MetraPark Arena at 7 p.m.
