President Donald Trump will visit Snap-on Tools in Kenosha on Tuesday, according to a story by Fox 6 News.

This will be his first visit to Wisconsin since being elected in November. He stumped at Memorial Hall a year ago during the presidential race.

While it is unclear why Trump is visiting the Kenosha-based tool-maker. Snap-on Tools is a supplier to Lockheed Martin for its F-35 jets. Reuters reported in February that Lockheed-Martin was awarded a contract for 90 F-35 jets from the U.S. Department of Defense.

The reason for Trump’s visit has not been announced by the White House.

According to a story by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

“In a February interview with Bloomberg, Nick Pinchuk, Snap-on chief executive officer, president and chair, praised Trump for meeting with business executives shortly after his inauguration.

Pinchuk also said he was seeing more confidence from small business owners, including the auto repair shops that buy Snap-on tools.

In preparation for the visit, a number of military helicopters were seen in Racine County over the weekend. Those helicopters landed at Snap-on Tools, which is based in Kenosha.
