President Trump visited Duluth on Wednesday September 30, 2020 as one of multiple campaign stops in Minnesota that day. The President spoke at Duluth International Airport starting around 8PM. The campaign event comes just 24 hours after the first Presidential debate took place in Cleveland.

DULUTH – Five weeks before the election, President Donald Trump was back in Minnesota on Wednesday, raising money and rallying a few thousand supporters on a cold, blustery night.

He claimed credit for adding jobs to the Iron Range, a refrain he also sounded a year ago when visiting Minneapolis, and expressed support for some of the area's most controversial topics, including copper-nickel mining near the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and replacing the aging Line 3 Enbridge oil pipeline.

"Now they're all back," he said of thousands of Iron Range jobs, seemingly unaware that the region's mines have been struggling with closures and furloughs since the pandemic began.
