Donald Trump has announced that he will make the trip to Flint, Michigan Wednesday, September 14th, to get an up-close look at the impact of the Flint water crisis, as well as that of blight.

Trump will be the third presidential candidate to visit Flint in the wake of the water crisis, as both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders previously made the city a talking point of their respective campaigns early in the Democratic primaries. Republican candidates have spent much less time with the divisive issue. There were a few water crisis questions at the Detroit debate back in March, but they were quickly brushed off and not addressed by all candidates.

Mr. Trump plans to visit the Flint water treatment plant and an unnamed Flint neighborhood tomorrow. Trump expressed his disbelief at the cause of the crisis, before vowing to take action on Flint’s behalf as commander in chief. “I will say this, my administration, we’ll get very much involved, and we’re going to get the problem solved,” Trump told NBC 25 reporter Dave Bondy. “But it’s still not solved and it’s hard to believe – but it’s really harder to believe that they did it in the first place, should have never happened.”

Trump’s visit will be his second trip to Michigan in a few weeks, as he previously visited Detroit over Labor Day weekend. Most polls show Hillary Clinton maintaining a lead over Trump in Michigan, a typically Democratic state, but Trump continues to erode her lead, which was down to just 5 points as of late August.
