Trump to Stump in Detroit on Labor Day Weekend

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump plans a campaign stop in Detroit on Labor Day weekend.

Presidential candidates often make stops in Detroit on Labor Day.

But Donald Trump is flipping that script. A bit.

The Trump campaign says the GOP nominee will meet with business and faith-based leaders in Detroit on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend.

He may be accompanied by native Detroiter, and former rival candidate, Dr. Ben Carson.

Trump has been reaching out to the African American community in recent days, arguing that Democratic policies have saddled cities like Detroit with high rates of poverty and unemployment.

Democratic officials say they will have a well-known politician attend their annual Labor Day parade in Detroit, but have not yet said precisely who that will be.
