The Thursday event will be moderated by anchors Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum. It will mark a rare foray into such a setting for Trump — his first time holding a town hall with voters since his 2016 campaign.

The appearance at the Scranton Cultural Center will also mark the first time Trump will take questions from Baier and MacCallum since interviews with them in June 2018 and April 2017, respectively. He has appeared numerous times since on Fox News, but mostly on opinion programs such as “Fox & Friends” and “Hannity.”

Pennsylvania is one of a handful of key swing states in the 2020 election. Trump won the Keystone State and its 20 electoral votes by only about 45,000 votes in 2016.

One poll released last week by Quinnipiac University showed Trump trailing each of the leading candidates for the Democratic nomination in Pennsylvania.
