Why is Trump coming to Macomb County?

The President will visit a county where he received 54 percent of the vote in the 2016 General ElectionMacomb 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. 

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.
