Trump heads to Arizona for most extensive trip since start of coronavirus pandemic

WASHINGTON – Tied to the White House because of the coronavirus, President Donald Trump hits the road Tuesday by heading to Arizona for his most extensive trip since the start of the pandemic.

Trump will visit a Honeywell aerospace facility in Phoenix that is making respirator masks for health care workers on the first in what may be a series of trips designed to highlight efforts to fight the coronavirus.

“We’re going to start to move around," Trump told supporters last week, adding that he also wants to resume reelection campaign rallies as soon as possible.

Arizona figures to be an important part of Trump's campaign strategy. He carried the state in 2016, but recent polls show him in a close contest this year with presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

Trump held a campaign rally in Phoenix on Feb. 19, just before the surge of coronavirus cases.

Trump travels again to Arizona under tight security, including medical security.

The White House announced Monday that medical personnel are administering coronavirus tests to anyone expected to come into proximity to the president.

Trump and aides have said for weeks that he is eager to get of the White House. They are making plans for another trip later this week to Ohio, also a politically consequential state.
