Vice President Mike Pence is slated to come to Macomb County during the same week that President Donald Trump will hold his first campaign rally in months after a pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Trump is scheduled to speak in Tulsa, Okla., on Saturday. Following a backlash, he moved the event from Friday — Juneteenth, which commemorates the end of slavery. Tulsa was the site of the worst racial attack in U.S. history in which African Americans in the “Black Wall Street” area were massacred in 1921.
Pence plans to visit Sterling Heights on Thursday, first having lunch at Engine House and then touring Chardam Gear Co., per the White House. Following the tour, Pence is schedule to deliver remarks at Casadei Structural Steel Inc.
