President Donald Trump heads to House Speaker Paul Ryan’s congressional district tomorrow facing low approval ratings and in the wake of his failure to fulfill a campaign promise to repeal and replace the federal health care law.
Trump is scheduled to visit and speak Tuesday at the Kenosha headquarters of the tool manufacturer Snap-On Inc.
Ryan won’t be there because he’s leading a congressional delegation on an overseas trip this week.
Trump carried Wisconsin by about 22,000 votes in November, making him the first Republican to carry the state since 1984. A Marquette University Law School poll released in March showed 47 percent of respondents disapproved of the job Trump was doing as president, while 41 percent approved.
Snap-on said it sees Trump’s visit as an “encouraging development” to help highlight the importance of manufacturing.
