President Donald Trump was scheduled to travel to Miami and Atlanta, before traveling to Charlotte, North Carolina. The two stops will be part of the president’s trip to five mostly conservative states on Tuesday. Vice President Mike Pence will be traveling with Trump in Charlotte.

Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., who was traveling in Georgia, requested that he be allowed to join Trump on the flight to Atlanta because he intends to testify before a congressional committee. Menendez has been subpoenaed to testify in a corruption case involving wealthy Florida donor and campaign donor Todd Saltsman.

And, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., will be touring a women’s health clinic in Atlanta.

Also scheduled to be at the campaign events: Ivanka Trump, the president’s eldest daughter and senior White House adviser, and her husband, Jared Kushner, a senior White House adviser. A White House spokeswoman later said that Ivanka Trump would attend one event in Georgia and one in Georgia.

This story has been updated with additional details on Sen. Menendez’s travel plans.

Joe Biden, who is stumping for Democratic candidates on the East Coast this week, spoke for about 45 minutes on Sunday at Michigan State University in Michigan, an important state in the 2020 presidential election.

“This country is deeply divided,” Biden said. “But today it’s about, are we going to be divided, or are we going to come together?”

To applause, Biden also said that while Donald Trump has received a great deal of negative media coverage, he also has received positive coverage. “Some of it is unfair, some of it is unjustified, some of it has been taken totally out of context,” Biden said. “Don’t think for a minute that he hasn’t said things that are positive, that he’s never said something that will help Americans.”
