President Trump is Visiting Cleveland Saturday. Quick, Everyone Suddenly Make Other Plans

A few weeks after his daughter Ivanka Trump visited Rocky River, alleged sexual predator, alleged Russian collusionist and President of the United States, Donald Trump is returning to Cleveland. Air Force One lands at Burke Lakefront Airport on Saturday morning, giving us yet another reason to close down Burke Airport.

While specifics regarding the visit are limited, White House officials have confirmed that the president will be promoting the Republican tax reforms, with not-at-all horrifying changes including dissolving individual tax deductions. Given his arrival is three days before the primaries, he's also likely lending his opinion regarding the election on May 8.

Trump won Ohio by a wide margin in the 2016 presidential election, leading many Ohio conservatives to model themselves after him. Trump already gave his endorsement to U.S. Representative Jim Renacci for U.S. Senator. In response, Renacci gave Trump one hell of an oxymoronic 'thank you' by nominating him for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Studies have shown Ohio has an increasing dislike for the current commander in chief, and Republicans desperately need to maintain a red stranglehold on the state. A blue win in the upcoming election would allow Democrats to remain competitive in Ohio, and potentially change the direction of Ohio's electoral power in 2020.

While still unconfirmed, it's also predicted that Trump will speak at a Republican National Convention-affiliated fundraiser in Ohio this weekend. No word on whether or not the wildly problematic and misleading abortion airplane ads will also be returning for the RNC fundraiser.
