A news website is reporting that President Donald Trump may visit Montana in the coming weeks as part of his effort to promote his tax plan. reported Tuesday that Trump, a Republican, plans to visit up to 13 states in seven weeks, possibly including Montana.

The website reports that Trump's advisers plan for the president to hit states where he won last fall and a Democratic senator is up for re-election next year. Trump won Montana by 20 points in the 2016 election, and U.S. Sen. Jon Tester, a Democrat, is facing what is expected to be a tight and costly race in 2018.

Bloomberg also reported some cabinet members will be "deployed behind Trump in a 'second wave.'"

Trump is seeking his first legislative victory with tax reform after failing to execute his party's long-promised repeal and replace of the Affordable Care Act. The specifics of the tax plan are unclear at this point.

Trump recently visited neighboring North Dakota, using the trip to touch on how changes to the tax code could help ranchers who inherit operations and property from their parents.

Trump has come to Montana before as a candidate, holding a rally that was attended by thousands in Billings. His son, Donald Trump Jr., made several visits to the state earlier this year to stump for then-candidate and now U.S. Rep. Greg Gianforte.
