President Donald Trump will announce a new round of aid to farmers at a Thursday evening campaign rally in Wisconsin, according to two people familiar with his plans.

The fresh tranche of aid for COVID-19-related losses will be about $13 billion, according to one of the people, speaking on condition of anonymity because the plan isn’t yet public.

Congress had authorized additional borrowing authority for the U.S. Department of Agriculture for the purpose in coronavirus-relief legislation passed earlier this year, and the second round has been widely anticipated.

White House communications staff declined to comment.
