DULUTH, MN -- Another push to turn Minnesota red on Wednesday as President Donald Trump's son rallied in Duluth.
Donald Trump Jr. spoke at the DECC in front of a crowd of about 250 people. He said smaller crowds and social distancing is not his style of politics, but added he'll play by the pandemic's rules.
Trump Jr. said some of the areas in our region have traditionally been blue-collar strongholds, but he claims they're not anymore.
Before his visit to Duluth, Minnesota's DFL party held a virtual meeting criticizing the Trump administration.
Party members included State Representative Liz Olson, St. Louis County Commissioner Keith Musolf, and former 8th District Congressman Rick Nolan.
They spoke about how the federal coronavirus response has forced businesses to let go of workers including Essentia and the Verso Paper.
Local representatives believe these recent visits from the Trump campaign are meant to distract from the real issue.
