Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will hold a rally in West Bend, Wisconsin this evening, his second major event of the week.
Trump’s rally will be held at the Washington County Fair Park & Conference Center beginning at 7:30 p.m. Central Time. It can be streamed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting. Unlike yesterday’s speech about foreign policy, this will be a traditional Trump speech delivered without use of a teleprompter.
This is Trump’s second time visiting Wisconsin in August after previously stopping in Green Bay. During that rally, he endorsed Paul Ryan after having refused to do so and after expressing support for Ryan’s primary opponent.
Trump hopes his message will appeal to working class voters in Wisconsin, but he is currently behind Hillary Clinton in the state, with Real Clear Politics‘ polling average showing Clinton beating Trump 46.7 percent to 37.3 percent. The latest Wisconsin poll from Marquette University has Trump behind by 13 points.
FiveThirtyEight forecasts that Hillary Clinton has a 93 percent chance of winning Wisconsin.
Trump’s West Bend rally will take place not far from Milwaukee, where protests and riots have broken out over the past few days after the shooting of a 23-year-old black man, Sylville Smith. Throughout his campaign, Trump has generally shown his support for police in situations like these, but he also made a point last month to call the deaths of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling “senseless” and “tragic.”
