KENOSHA, Wis. (WMTV) - Former vice president Joe Biden is planning a trip to Kenosha on Thursday. The Democratic presidential candidate’s visit will come just two days after President Donald Trump’s trip to the city.

According to Biden’s camp, he and his wife, Jill, will hold a community meeting during their stop. The campaign said the goal is to “bring together Americans to heal and address the challenges we face.”

After the meeting, the Bidens are scheduled to make a “local stop,” but campaign officials did not detail what that would entail.

A spokesperson for the family of Jacob Blake confirmed Biden will meet with him while in Wisconsin, TMJ4 reported.

President Trump was in Kenosha on Tuesday, where he toured sites of burned down buildings and met with Kenosha Law Enforcement. He also announced $47 million of federal funding to help law enforcement and small business owners pick up the pieces.
