President Trump will visit Montana next week.

White House spokesperson Lindsay Walters says that Trump will be in Montana on Thursday, July 5th.

There is no word yet on where he will be, nor for how long.

Many people believe that the President is visiting Montana in support of Matt Rosendale, the GOP candidate who will face incumbent U.S. Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) in the November election.

Rosendale defeated several other GOP candidates in the primary earlier this month.

Donald Trump, Jr. visited Billings last Friday to stump for Rosendale.

The last time a U.S. President visited Great Falls was in February 2005, when George W. Bush was campaigning for partial privatization of Social Security.

(MAY 3, 2018) On Thursday, U.S. Sen. Jon Tester gave his first televised interview to MTN News since President Donald Trump attacked him on Twitter and called for his resignation.

Trump called on the Montana Democrat to resign after Tester led the charge against Ronny Jackson, the president’s failed pick to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs. Jackson withdrew his nomination last week after Tester’s office made public allegations about Jackson’s professional conduct.

Over the weekend, at a campaign rally in Michigan, Trump claimed that he has information about Tester that, if released, would end Tester’s career.

Tester told MTN News on Thursday that he has no secrets, and is focused on finding a new Secretary for the Department of Veterans Affairs. 

In the 2016 election, President Trump won Montana by 20 points, and Tester’s position in the U.S. Senate is one of five Democratic-held seats in states that Trump won by double digits.
