Instead the President will visit a county where he received 54 percent of the vote in the 2016 General Election. Macomb County helped him become the first Republican presidential candidate to win in the state of Michigan since 1988. 

During a rally in Warren on Oct. 31, 2016, Trump declared he would win in Michigan as he campaigned against Obamacare. He promised changes to the national healthcare law. 

"We are going to win back the White House. Real change begins with immediately repealing and replacing Obamacare," he said. "It's just been announced that Michigan residents are going to experience a massive double-digit premium hike in Obamacare."

The rally was held at the Macomb Community College campus in Warren. Several thousand people attended. Hundreds were turned away at the door because the venue was filled to capacity.
