President Donald Trump will pay his latest visit to Minnesota next Friday, Sept. 18, the same day his presidential challenge Joe Biden is in town.

The president will make a stop at the Bemidji Airport at 4 p.m., where he will hold one of his customary hangar rallies before flying off to another event in Wisconsin.

Trump was last in Minnesota in August, when he gave speeches at MSP Airport and in Mankato.

After losing it by just 1.5% to Hillary Clinton in 2016, Trump sees Minnesota as one of his best chances to flip a state, having seen his support grow particularly in rural areas and the Iron Range.

He is hoping the support in Greater Minnesota will be enough to overcome the deficit he faces in the Twin Cities metro area.

The latest poll from KSTP/SurveyUSA showed Trump trailing Biden by 9% in Minnesota. However, the poll has a 5.2% margin of error and the same companies polled the race in 2016 and found Clinton to have a 10% lead just before the election.

The location of Biden's visit next week has not been revealed, but in coming to Minnesota, the Democratic nominee will do what Clinton failed to in 2016.

It's the latest in a series of visits to Minnesota, with Trump family members including Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, and Lara Trump coming to the state, along with VP Mike Pence, while Biden's wife Dr. Jill Biden visited a Minnesota school this week, while Biden's running mate Kamala Harris held a virtual meeting with Minnesota DFL leaders.
