Shortly before the death of George Floyd while in Minneapolis police custody in late May, which sparked nationwide protests, the president stood at a personal-best 49 percent Gallup approval rating and trailed Biden by 4.5 points in the RealClearPolitics index of major polls.

On Monday, the RealClearPolitics index showed Biden's lead expanding to 9.8 points, the former vice president's biggest margin over the incumbent since September.

Wisconsin is a key state for the president, who became the first Republican presidential candidate to capture it since 1984 in the 2016 election. Trump also won Pennsylvania and Michigan, despite trailing in the polls going into Election Day in all three states.

Thursday's town hall will mark the second for Trump on Fox News in seven weeks.

The last occurred at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., and was moderated by "Special Report" anchor Bret Baier and "The Story" anchor Martha MacCallum on May 3.
