The rally marks the first campaign trail appearance for Melania since an event in Orlando, Florida, in June 2019.

Back in August, Melania addressed attendees at the Republican National Convention from the White House.

And now, Melania will attend the Make America Great Again Rally with the president at Erie International Airport on Tuesday evening, according to NBC News.

However, Melania is not expected to speak during the event, CNN reported.

Doors will open at 4pm and the event is set to begin at 7pm Eastern Time in the critical battleground state.

A recent Hill-Harvard poll found that the president is trailing behind Biden in Pennsylvania by five points.

A spokeswoman for the first lady has also revealed Melania is planning to attend the presidential debate in Nashville, Tennessee on Thursday.

Melania does not have any other planned appearances relating to her husband's campaign, a source told CNN.

President Trump and Vice President Biden will face off one final time at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee on October 22.

The debate - to be hosted by NBC News White House correspondent Kirsten Welker - will start at 9pm and run for 90-minutes.

Melania's upcoming Tuesday appearance comes nearly three weeks after she announced her positive coronavirus diagnosis to Twitter on October 2.

Last week, Melania said she used "a more natural route" of "vitamins and healthy food" during her recovery from coronavirus.

The first lady credited her diet and vitamins with helping her return to health after suffering a "rollercoaster" of symptoms.

She didn't say which vitamins or foods she turned to but did reveal her symptoms were mild, including aches, a cough, and fatigue.

However, there is absolutely no evidence that natural remedies, food or vitamins can treat Covid-19, say most scientists.

Melania said in a statement on Wednesday: "I am happy to report that I have tested negative and hope to resume my duties as soon as I can.

"Along with this good news, I want people to know that I understand just how fortunate my family is to have received the kind of care that we did.

"If you are sick, or if you have a loved one who is sick - I am thinking of you and will be thinking of you every day," Melania wrote.

Melania said that she was "very fortunate as my diagnosis came with minimal symptoms, though they hit me all at once and it seemed to be a rollercoaster of symptoms in the days after."

The first lady said she "experienced body aches, a cough and headaches, and felt extremely tired most of the time."

Melania also revealed that her son Barron also had coronavirus when she and the President did.
