The Detroit Labor Day Parade, which begins in Corktown Monday morning, has been traditionally been a welcoming place for Democratic candidates. Republicans candidates seldom, if ever show their faces.

But on Monday President Donald Trump's re-election campaign plans to fly a banner over Detroit on Labor Day, the Wall Street Journal reports. Besides the Labor Day Parade, plenty folks, including many suburbanites, are expected to attend the Detroit Jazz Fest in downtown Detroit.

The Trump campaign plans is to fly banners over beach and riverfront cities that largely went blue in 2016 and will urge voters to add their phone numbers to the list of supporters the campaign has been cultivating, the Journal reports. Other cities on the list include Milwaukee, Wis., Erie, Pa., Cleveland, Virginia Beach, Va., Fort Lauderdale and South Beach, Fla.
