PHOENIX — Following President Donald Trump's visit to Arizona on Monday, Vice President Mike Pence, Second Lady Karen Pence, and Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump, are all scheduled to visit the Phoenix area this week for various roundtable discussions with Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, and campaign-related events, despite COVID-19 restrictions on large gatherings still in effect.

The event is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.

Barrett, will visit Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson on Thursday morning, followed by a visit to Luke Air Force Base in Glendale on Thursday afternoon.

She will speak around 10:45 a.m. in Tucson, 2:10 p.m. in Glendale, and around 3:30 p.m. at the roundtable, according to a news release.

On Friday, September 18, she will participate in a roundtable regarding veteran suicide prevention, her office said.
