MISSOULA – Republican Party sources have confirmed with MTN News that President Donald Trump is planning to visit Missoula on Thursday, Oct. 18.
Trump has visited Billings and Great Falls in recent weeks to support Republican U.S. Senate candidate Matt Rosendale in his efforts to unseat incumbent Democratic U.S. Senator Jon Tester.
Trump’s son, Donald Trump, Jr., recently spent time visiting the Bitterroot.
Tester’s campaign released a statement in response to the news.
“Senator Tester thinks President Trump’s visit to Montana could be a great opportunity to discuss the challenges facing rural America by visiting Montana veterans facilities. President Trump should visit the future site of the Southwest Montana Veterans Home that Matt Rosendale voted against and Jon Tester fought for. Or head up to Columbia Falls to see the veterans home there that Rosendale voted against funding. Because while Jon Tester is fighting for Montana every day, Matt Rosendale is only looking out for himself,” Tester spokesman Luke Jackson said.
