It is not clear whether the president’s messages will be in-person, remote, or pre-recorded. A senior adviser to the Trump campaign laid out what to expect this week.

“We’re going to see a very optimistic and upbeat convention this week from President Trump and our Republican allies, and actually from out Democratic and Independent allies as well,” said Jason Miller the Senior Adviser of the Trump campaign. “We’re going to talk about the ‘American Story,’ but all the accomplishments that we’ve had over the last four years with President Trump and what the president’s second term vision is going to look like”

Miller also said the convention will change the perception of what “the media tries to tell of what a Trump supporter looks like.”

Monday, the president will visit Henderson County, North Carolina.

He will tour “Flavor First Growers and Packers” in Mills River. He is then expected to speak about the Coronavirus food assistance program for farmers and families.

The president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, will be with her father during today’s trip to North Carolina.
