The White House says President Barack Obama will visit a suburban Detroit auto plant Monday afternoon, a visit an aide says is to part of an effort to make the case for raising tax rates on wealthier Americans.

A presidential statement Thursday says Obama will participate in "an event on the economy" at the Daimler Detroit Diesel plant in Wayne County's Redford Township.

An administration official said earlier that the Michigan trip is part of Obama's effort to get public backing for his positions and use that support to pressure Republicans to reach a deal on the "fiscal cliff."

The official requested anonymity in order to discuss the trip before it was publicly announced.
