Winning back Wisconsin is a key part of Democrats' strategy, which fed into their decision to pick Milwaukee to host the national convention. Trump, who won the state by fewer than 23,000 votes in 2016, knows its importance as well and is expected to make frequent visits in the coming months.

AP FACT CHECK: Claims from Trump rally

  AP FACT CHECK: Claims from Trump rally WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump held a campaign rally Tuesday night in Milwaukee as six Democratic contenders hoping to unseat him readied for their last debate before voting begins in Iowa. A look at how some of their claims compare with the facts: TRUMP: “Mexico's paying for the wall. You know that. It's all worked out.” THE FACTS: Mexico isn’t paying for Trump's long-promised border wall. Trump has argued that the updated trade agreement with Canada and Mexico will pay for the wall because of economic benefits he predicts will come from the deal. Nothing in the trade agreement would cover or refund the construction cost or require a payment from Mexico.

MILWAUKEE -- Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was in Milwaukee on Monday evening, April 4th This, on the eve of the presidential primary election in the Badger State. Donald Trump speaks in La Crosse. Trump said he would be staying in Wisconsin Monday night, though as

Kushner was to be joined by Republican Sen. Ron Johnson, of Wisconsin, and Ja'Ron Smith, deputy assistant to the president, for a discussion about enactment of the First Step Act, a law designed to overhaul the criminal justice system, reduce the number of people in prison and help former inmates rejoin society.

The law, which Trump signed a little over a year ago, won rare bipartisan support and backing from a few black ministers, leaders and lawmakers who forged an allegiance with Trump.

They also planned to discuss The Joseph Project, a faith-based program Johnson helped create in late 2015 that connects inner-city Milwaukee workers with jobs in Sheboygan County.

Kushner, in a statement, called the First Step Act part of Trump's effort to “uplift and revitalize America's forgotten communities.”

Democrats and Republicans are trying to win over black voters in big cities such as Milwaukee that will play a huge role in deciding the next president. Democrats have been organizing in Milwaukee and other urban areas to reach out more aggressively to minority voters, trying to improve upon lower turnout in 2016 that was part of what helped fuel Trump's victory.

One of those organizers in Milwaukee, Angela Lang, said Kushner's event seemed like an attempt to woo minorities but that Trump shouldn't assume that all black voters care about is mass incarceration and criminal justice reform.

“Everyone knows when you come to Milwaukee that's code for black and brown voters,” she said. “But black voters are more than just single-issue voters.”
