WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump isn’t about to cede the political stage as Democrats begin their national convention this week.
He’s launching aggressive counter-programming to former Vice President Joe Biden’s show.
President Trump is headed to Minnesota and Wisconsin on Monday — the latter the official host state for the entirely virtual Democratic National Convention.
The GOP has a week of travel and political events aimed at blunting the customary polling “bounce” that candidates get during their convention.
The president trails in both public and private surveys less than three months before Election Day.
President Trump says he doesn’t have time not to campaign during the Democratic convention week.
