President Donald Trump will highlight his environmental agenda while campaigning in the states of Florida and North Carolina on Tuesday.
The White House says Trump will stop in Jupiter, Florida, Tuesday to remind voters there of their conservation and environmental protection efforts in the Everglades region.
Trump’s concern for the ecosystem amid his campaign for re-election
For the federal budget year beginning October 1, the White House said, Trump asked Congress for $250 million in annual funds to accelerate infrastructure construction for the Everglades as part of the South Florida Ecosystem Restoration.
The project aims to improve Everglades with greater regional water storage capacity and reduce harmful discharges from Lake Okeechobee.
The president will also hold a campaign event Tuesday in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
Trump won by little both states in the 2016 presidential election.
