Uncommitted voters in the crucial swing state of Pennsylvania put their questions to Pres.

Trump's Philly town hall follows a recent visit to Shanksville, Pennsylvania for a 9/11 memorial ceremony on Friday and other events taking place as part of Trump's reelection campaign in the battleground state.
The president also held a rally in Latrobe on Sept. 3 and first daughter Ivanka Trump hosted a fireside chat in Honey Brook, Chester County, the next day. Events such as these prior to Tuesday's town hall have been located in smaller, more rural towns.
Trump won Pennsylvania during the 2016 presidential election against Hillary Clinton, but by a narrow margin. Polls for the 2020 presidential campaign show Democratic candidate Joe Biden slightly leading President Trump, and on Tuesday, FiveThirtyEight wrote that Pennsylvania could be decisive state in the 2020 election.
For those traveling or commuting in and around Center City on Tuesday, SEPTA has detoured bus routes and there are some road closures in preparation for President Trump's arrival and departures. There also have been several demonstrations throughout the day and planned for the evening connected to Trump's visit.
