ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -

President Barack Obama will speak about strengthening the economy for the middle class during his visit to Asheville on Wednesday, according to The White House.

Obama will travel to the western North Carolina city a day after speaking to Congress during the annual State of the Union address.

The president will speak at Linamar Corporation to discuss proposals, which will be unveiled in his congressional address, that focus on making the economy better for the middle class.

Both the speaking engagement and the arrival and departure of Air Force One are closed to the public.

Obama seems to enjoy spending time in Asheville. This will be the president's fourth visit to the western North Carolina town since he began campaigning for the nation's highest office in 2008.
