CALUMET, Mich. (WLUC) - On Tuesday, the presidential campaign team for President Donald Trump announced an upcoming event in Calumet.

According to Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., Donald Trump Jr. will host a “Make America Great Again!” event at the Houghton County Memorial Airport on Thursday, Oct. 22 at 4:30 p.m. eastern time. The airport is located at 3810 Airpark Blvd. in Calumet.

Doors for the event open at 3:00 p.m. eastern.

“It’s really just showing our commitment to the Upper Peninsula," said Chris Gustafson, the Michigan Press Secretary for the Trump campaign. "Just recently Senior Advisor John Pence did a tour through the Upper Peninsula. We’re continuing to invest record amounts and really we’re looking forward to flipping Marquette County and for the first time in 92 years delivering all counties (of the Upper Peninsula) to a Republican president.”

TV6 and FOX UP has received the following statement from the Michigan Democratic Party:

“Yet again, a Trump family member is stopping by our state to spread lies and misinformation in a last ditch, desperate attempt to distract Michiganders from Donald Trump’s failures. We won’t fall for the spin. Michiganders have seen four years of Trump’s destructive agenda that has forced over 7,000 deaths from COVID-19 and left hundreds of thousands without jobs. In the final two weeks, Michigan voters will be turning out in record numbers to vote early in-person and on election day to reject Trump and elect Joe Biden, Gary Peters, and Democrats up and down the ballot.”

Tickets are available on a first come, first served basis, on the campaign’s event page.

It is unclear if there are any capacity restrictions that will be enforced. But, the admission form includes a disclaimer about the coronavirus, saying “By registering for this event, you understand and expressly acknowledge that an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. In attending the event, you and any guests voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19, and waive, release, and discharge Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.; the host venue; or any of their affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, or volunteers from any and all liability under any theory, whether in negligence or otherwise, for any illness or injury.”

That same day Trump Jr. is set to visit Dubuque, Iowa, beforehand and Steubenville, Ohio, afterward.
