U.S. President Donald Trump will announce a new round of pandemic aid to farmers of around $ 13 billion at a campaign rally in Wisconsin on Thursday evening, a source familiar with the situation told Reuters.Wisconsin, whose dairy and agricultural sector has been hit hard by both White House trade policies and the Covid-19 pandemic, is a battleground state in the presidential race.

Trump’s upset victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton in Wisconsin in 2016 was less than 1% of the vote – and it was the first time the state had voted for a Republican in a presidential election since 1984.

Trump was scheduled to speak at a rally in Mosinee, a rural Wisconsin town, at 9 p.m. EDT Thursday. His trip to Wisconsin – nicknamed America’s Dairyland for its milk and cheese industries – comes on the same day state officials reported 2,034 new cases of Covid-19, a record one-day increase.
