PHOENIX — President Donald Trump is returning to Arizona on Tuesday, his third trip to the state during the coronavirus pandemic.

Trump will appear in Yuma where he plans to discuss immigration-related matters after trips to Wisconsin and Minnesota on Monday.

On Thursday, the president will head to Scranton, Pennsylvania, to discuss policies regarding jobs and trade.

Later that night, former Vice President Joe Biden will deliver an acceptance speech to be the presidential nominee for the Democratic Party.

Arizona has been a popular destination for Trump and his administration in the months leading up to November’s general election.

Trump’s latest visit will come one week after Vice President Mike Pence traveled to the Grand Canyon State for campaign stops in Mesa and Tucson.

Trump’s flight to Phoenix on May 5 marked his first major trip since the outbreak of COVID-19. During the visit Trump toured a Honeywell plant that had been retooled to produce N95 masks. He also signed a proclamation to bring awareness to violence in Native American communities before heading back to Washington.

The president returned to Arizona June 23 for a border wall visit before he spoke at a Students for Trump Convention event at Dream City Church in Phoenix.

An OH Predictive Insights poll released Monday found Biden up 49%-45%, but it’s the third consecutive poll the Republican incumbent has whittled down the difference.

In a similar poll in July, Biden was ahead 49%-44%. In May, he led 50%-43%.
