President Trump is going to Maine as planned for the latest stop on his tour of companies producing medical equipment needed to battle the coronavirus pandemic.

WASHINGTON – The governor wants him to stay away. The state’s congressional delegation is skipping the event.

In Washington, protesters have been camped out near the White House for a week demanding police accountability and justice for Floyd. “Right now, our state and nation are in a fragile moment, which must be handled carefully,” he said. If Mills believes Trump’s visit would inflame tensions or hinder the state’s coronavirus reopening plan, “I respect her judgment,” King said.

Maine gives two electoral votes to the winner of the state’s popular vote and one to the winner of each of its two congressional districts. Trump lost the statewide vote to Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016 but still picked up one electoral vote in Maine after winning the second district – a feat he’d like to repeat in this fall’s elections.

what does it mean when u are not invited,,maine tells djt to watch his words if he ignores their not welcome/.to come to maine/.why do companies want him ? they just want him to stay in dc/.or go any where but to maine/.they do not want to be associated with all his failures/.

As a black, Liberal, gay woman from a swing state, I have been wary of Trump from day one. However, after seeing mass-looting rioting and destruction by BLM and Antifa terrorists, my neighborhood watch group of 83 adults who are black and Hispanic, will be voting to re-elect him.

Poll Will Trump wear a mask on this stop?

Well, now’s a good time to hear from StephenKing. If nothing else, at least this visit might help inspire another best seller.

Why always the open mouth? Where’s silence?

The coward should just stay in his bunker. Looks like America is coming together better without him. He serves no purpose at all. He is wrong about everything, especially his recommendation to use. Thankful for state Governors!

(from Europe) Where is Mike Pence?

Interesting that from what I hear, he is not welcome in the state of Maine. I would hope that the Maine sentiment will be present and he will not be greeted well. Hoping that people do not show up and if they chose to do so, they demonstrate their displeasure of his behavior!

He just wants to stir up crap. He loves chaos.

Would you please just stop covering him? Please, we are done with him. He is irrelevant.

Be safe! America needs you ✝️🇺🇸
