MADISON, Wis. (AP) – President Donald Trump plans to tour the Fincantieri Marinette Marine shipyard next week, marking his first visit to Wisconsin since January on a trip that comes two days after Vice President Mike Pence will be in the state.
The White House announced Trump’s trip on Friday.
He plans to tour the Marinette Marine shipyard on Thursday and deliver remarks. This shipyard was recently approved to build ships for the Navy, in deal worth nearly $800 million.
U.S. Navy announced last month that Fincantieri Marinette Marine was awarded a contract to build the Navy’s new frigate.
Two days prior to the President’s visit, Vice President Pence plans to hold the first “Faith in America” event in the Milwaukee suburb of Pewaukee.
Trump was last in Wisconsin in January for a rally in Milwaukee.
