WATCH LIVE: President Trump expected to arrive at Levant orchard soon

Nine days before Election Day 2020, President Donald Trump holds campaign rally in Manchester, New Hampshire.

MANCHESTER, N.H. — President Donald Trump spoke to supporters at a hangar at the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport in Manchester, N.H. at 1 p.m. Sunday afternoon.

Soon after, President Trump will then head to Bangor, Maine for a previously unscheduled stop, according to reports. 

"The FAA has advised that on Sunday, beyond a planned rally in Manchester, New Hampshire, that President Trump may also visit Bangor, Maine -- part of the state's second congressional district, which awards its one electoral vote separately and went for Trump in 2016," Jonathan Lemire, an AP White House reporter and political correspondent with NBC News and MSNBC tweeted Saturday.

The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), an aviation organization, has air traffic management specialists at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Air Traffic Control System Command Center to provide impact statements for VIP Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs), detailing the effects they have on business and general aviation, including what airports and airspace might be affected.  

The organization lists a presidential flight restriction at the Bangor International Airport for 3:30-7:59 p.m. Sunday. 

This would be Trump's first campaign stop in Maine this election cycle, though he toured Puritan Medical Products in Guilford in June.  

Both the Biden and Trump campaigns have made multiple trips to Maine and N.H. this election. Biden's wife Dr. Jill Biden recently made stops in Orono and Blue Hill for events focused on labor, small businesses, and the lobster industry. 

On Saturday, Kamala Harris' husband Doug Emhoff traveled to Aroostook County where he met with potato farmers in Blaine and hosted a rally in Fort Fairfield. 

Vice President Mike Pence held a campaign rally in Portsmouth on Wednesday, and in Hermon, Maine on Monday.
