The White House has confirmed President Trump will visit Minnesota on Monday — Tax Day — with the focus on tax cut legislation he pushed through Congress last year. Hamline University political analyst David Schultz says the president likely chose here because he thinks he can win Minnesota in 2020:

“This is a state that we’d have to say — what? — is probably the most… Democratic Party of all the Midwest, and if you could knock that off, I think that would be a big coup for Donald Trump as a candidate (and) as president.”

Schultz says the president’s visit highlights that Minnesota is a high-tax state and that there’s a battle between the governor and Republican-controlled Minnesota Senate over taxes.
