President Donald Trump set to hold 'Make America Great Again' rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa

President Trump is set to hold a "Make America Great Again" rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on Wednesday in a county that went for former Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

The president's Hawkeye State visit comes as Senate Republicans inch toward a public release of and vote on their bill to repeal and replace Obamacare, Congressional committees and the FBI continues its probes of possible collusion between Russia and Trump's 2016 campaign and Middle East tensions heighten amid the conflict in Syria.

The 45th president has held multiple rallies since assuming office -- including a "First 100 days" event in Harrisburg, Pa. -- and seems to use the events as a way to repeat some of his most authentic campaign rhetoric in front of his most supportive political base. The Wednesday event will also include a sending off ceremony of sorts for former Iowa governor Terry Branstad, who was recently confirmed as the new U.S. ambassador to China.

Trump won 51 percent of the 2016 election popular vote in Iowa, compared to the 41 percent garnered by former Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. Trump notably lost the Cedar Rapids territory of Linn County to Clinton by just over 10,000 votes.

As Trump's approval ratings continue to decline, the president will likely posture himself as tough on national security, successful in promoting domestic job strength and resilient in pushing for the GOP effort to pass the American Health Care Act bill that they hope will replace former President Barack Obama's signature Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare.

With Branstad present as the ambassador to China, the president will also likely comment in some capacity on Ford Motor Company's decision to build a new factory in China -- which does not fall in line with Trump's "Buy American, Hire American" agenda.

The rally is scheduled to be held at the U.S. Cellular Arena, which can hold up to 8,600 people.
