The program of the trip includes an inspection of the construction of the border wall in Yuma and a speech in Phoenix.

US President Donald Trump is holding campaign events in Arizona on Tuesday, which may play a vital role in the upcoming presidential election.

Speaking to reporters before the trip, Trump said that he intends to talk to the youth of Arizona, as well as meet with some state officials.

Speaking to the press, the President focused on the recent attempt by demonstrators in Washington to demolish a monument to Andrew Jackson, one of the US presidents. “I just want to thank the law-enforcement forces. They did a great job. We worked very closely with the White House Secret service and some of our Executive branch employees. They did a great job. They stopped them in cold blood,” Trump said.

“Many are already in prison, and many will be there today,” the President added.

Referring to the role of state authorities at a time when there are racially motivated protests in the country, in some cases turning into riots, the President stressed: “In Seattle, they are fragile, and in Minnesota, they may need help.”

“If they need help, the Federal government is ready to help them,” the head of the White House continued. – If these hooligans appear, they are no longer protesters… they are anarchists and so on… If the States can’t handle it, then we are ready and able to help, as we did in Minnesota,” Trump explained.

He said that he plans to issue a decree on historical monuments in connection with the increased cases of destruction of monuments, which activists consider racist.

“They will not demolish our monuments,” the President said – ” Very soon, I will issue a decree that will strengthen the existing provisions but in a more uniform form.”

We will remind that on Monday, the protesters declared the territory at the Church of St. Nicholas. John near the White House Black House Autonomous Zone, similar to the captured protesters Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone in Seattle.

Trump tweeted on Tuesday: “There will never be an “Autonomous zone” In Washington, DC, as long as I am your President. If they try to do this, they will face dangerous force!”

As the New York Times notes, the President’s trip to Arizona on Tuesday is significant in the election situation.

According to the publication, already in early 2020, Democrats believed that this year the sympathies of Arizona residents would finally again be on the side of their party.

As the New York Times reports, many moderate suburban voters are unhappy with President Trump. In 2018, they favored a Democrat in the Senate election for the first time in thirty years. Young Latinos, who account for 24 percent of the electorate in Arizona, are showing record activity in the election, dissatisfied with the President’s anti-immigrant rhetoric. Also, the party has a promising candidate for the Senate.

The election is four months away. According to Democrats, Joe Biden is the most promising democratic candidate in Arizona since Bill Clinton. Biden’s staff believes that winning in Arizona is not only a path to winning elections but also confirmation that Latinos and immigrants are a regular part of the democratic electorate.

On Tuesday, Trump is holding campaign events in the state whose support he needs for re-election, especially if he loses any of the three Midwestern states that supported him in 2016.

The program of the presidential trip includes an inspection of the construction of the border wall in Yuma. “We built more than two hundred miles of wall. This is unbelievable!” Trump told reporters before the trip.
Recall that Yuma is one of the centers of the COVID-19 epidemic in the country.

After that, the President is scheduled to make a campaign speech at a Church in Phoenix, where more than 3,000 people, mostly belonging to the organization “Students for Trump,” will listen to him.

The President’s visit comes amid heightened tensions over the coronavirus pandemic and anti-racist protests, which may play into the hands of Democrats.

Polls show that Democratic Senate candidate mark Kelly is ahead of his Republican rival, and Biden is ahead of Trump.

In terms of party affiliation, the population of Arizona is almost evenly divided: 34.9 percent are registered as Republicans, 32.5 percent are registered as Democrats, and 31.8 percent are registered as independent voters.

Also, mail-in voting is widespread in the state, which Democrats believe could increase their margin.
