VANDALIA, Ohio (WDTN) — President Donald Trump made a campaign stop at Wright Brothers Aero in Vandalia for to deliver remarks about “fighting for the American worker” Monday.
The last time the President was in Vandalia for a campaign rally was in March 2016.
Trump kicked off the night by calling the rally a “friendly protest” and asking whether the crowd would like a male or female justice to fill the spot left by Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
He said that he plans on selecting a woman to fill the vacant spot and that he already has five on his short list. Adding later that he hopes to have a decision made by Friday or Saturday.
The President spoke at length about the jobs and trade deals he has created during his time in office.
Lawmakers from both sides of the aisle are reiterating how critical Ohio is in the November election. Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley, a Democrat, and Republican Senator Rob Portman said they are not surprised by the number of trips the President and his surrogates are making to the buckeye state.
