President Donald Trump returned to the Northland Wednesday for a 'Make America Great' Again rally at the Duluth International Airport.


Thousands of people attended the rally. 

When President Trump arrived in Duluth, the crowd erupted in cheers. And, as he got off Air Force One, the song ‘Proud to be an American’ played.

President Trump began his speech by talking about the first presidential debate that took place with his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden the night before. "We won big last night." President Trump said. "In the history of cable television, had the highest ratings of any show in the history of cable television."

He praised his Supreme Court nomination, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, discussed replacing the Line 3 Pipeline and addressed Iron Range mine closures. He commented on how windy and cold it is in Minnesota.

The President's visit underlines the state's significance as a battleground state for the election in November.

Before coming to Duluth, President Trump first made a stop at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International airport to attend a private fundraiser.

Trump was in Bemidji less than two weeks ago.

Vice President Mike Pence and Donald Trump Jr. also made campaign stops in Duluth.
