PHOENIX — President Donald Trump will be returning to Phoenix on June 23 to address an audience of mostly young voters and activists.

The event will be hosted by Students for Trump at Dream City Church, according to a press release.

An exact time for the address was not immediately available.

Trump told reporters Wednesday he was planning to restart his signature rallies, with Arizona on the short list of upcoming destinations.

With health concerns over the coronavirus pandemic, Trump hasn’t held rallies, which regularly fill arenas with supporters, as part of his reelection campaign in several months.

He said the first rally would be June 19 in Tulsa. In addition to Oklahoma and Arizona, he said Florida and North Carolina were on his itinerary.

It’s no surprise he’d want to rev up support in Arizona, which he won in 2016 against Hillary Clinton. The president is trailing Democratic challenger Joe Biden in state polls, as is GOP Sen. Martha McSally against Democrat Mark Kelly.

Trump’s last rally in the state was at Phoenix Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Feb. 19.

The president’s last visit to Arizona was May 8, when he spent the day in Phoenix.

That marked the first time the president had departed Washington since the coronavirus outbreak had escalated into a national crisis.

During the visit, Trump toured a Honeywell facility that produces N95 masks and held a roundtable to discuss Native American issues.
