FARGO - President Donald Trump will make a campaign stop in North Dakota "in the coming weeks," according to an article in the Washington Post.

Citing a person familiar with the president's travel plans, the newspaper said Trump events in the coming weeks were planned in North Dakota, South Dakota, Missouri, Montana, Kentucky and Tennessee.

It would be Trump's second visit to North Dakota this summer. The president held a rally at Scheels Arena in Fargo in late June to boost his agenda and support Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Cramer.

The Post reported the White House is planning an aggressive travel schedule for Trump that could see him on the road at least 40 days between Aug. 1 and election day Nov. 6. The president and Republicans are concerned over the mid-term elections in which control of the Senate and U.S. House of Representatives are up for grabs.

"We expect him to be the most aggressive campaigner in recent presidential history," the Post quoted Johnny DeStefano, a White House counselor to Trump.
