President Trump is well known for his lively, jam-packed rallies across America, but this one just might take the cake.
In a raucous and lively rally this evening in Montoursville, PA, President Trump kept the crowd on their feet with a chorus of wins and jabs aimed at Democrat primary contenders and potential future opponents.
Two things really stood out in this event-filled rally. The first was the moment when President Trump called out former VP and PA native Joe Biden.
President Trump slammed Biden, telling the people of Pennsylvania that “Biden deserted you.”

According to Fox News:
President Trump focused on the economy at a fiery rally at the Energy Aviation Hangar in Montoursville, Pennsylvania Monday evening, just two days after 2020 Democrat presidential frontrunner Joe Biden held his own campaign rally in nearby Philadelphia.
And Trump caustically reminded the hometown crowd that the Biden — who was born in Scranton, Pa. — quickly took his political career to neighboring Delaware.
“And don’t forget: Biden deserted you,” Trump said as the rally wrapped up. “He’s not from Pennsylvania. I guess he was born here, but he left you folks. He left you for another state. Remember that, please. I meant to say that. This guy talks about, ‘Oh, I know Scranton.’ Well, I know the places better. He left you for another state, and he didn’t take care of you, because he didn’t take care of your jobs. He let other countries come in and rip off America. That doesn’t happen anymore.”
The second moment was when the President invited a fan wearing a wall suit to the rally stage. The fan, originally from San Diego, California, was able to join the President for a few moments on stage, sharing a few words and a hand shake.

The lines were long and the crowd was enormous, as usual:

According to Fox News:
As Trump was boasting the 500 miles of wall that will be built by the end of next year, which prompted the signature “Build the wall” chant. He then pointed to the unique MAGA hat-wearing supporter.
“Can we get him up here?” Trump asked. “Get him up here! Look at this guy!”
The crowd cheered as the suit-wearing man appeared on stage and shook the president’s hand.
“Now we know who he’s voting for,” Trump joked. “He says ‘I’m from San Diego.’ Do you believe that? ‘I’m from San Diego and we need that wall.'”
