Bloomberg title Trump, Biden announce joint campaign visit to Washington D.C. article President Donald Trump and Vice President Joe Biden will travel to Washington on Friday, June 13, to launch a joint campaign to unseat Democratic incumbent Joe Sestak, according to an invitation to the event posted by the White House.
The trip, to be held on the campus of the University of Virginia, is expected to draw about 1,000 people and feature a number of prominent surrogates, including Vice President Mike Pence and U.S. Sen. Cory Booker.
The announcement of the trip came a day after Sestag announced his bid for reelection.
The joint trip follows Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris climate accord, and the administration’s move to end federal funding for Planned Parenthood, a decision that prompted protests across the nation and drew widespread condemnation.
In addition to the trip to the university, the president will also address a bipartisan congressional delegation at the Capitol on Thursday, June 14, according the invitation.
The visit will be followed by a series of events in the coming weeks in the wake of the election, including a visit to the U.N. General Assembly and a meeting with President Donald J. Trump at the White Senate.
Trump is scheduled to host an economic advisory council at the State Department on Friday.
