The Trump Train is just getting warmed up!
After a hugely successful 4th of July speech at Mt. Rushmore, President Trump will be holding a MASSIVE outdoor rally in New Hampshire on Saturday.
The MAGA rally is being held outdoors mostly for precaution, ensuring that the president's staunchest supporters are kept as safe as possible.
The Trump re-election campaign will be providing hand sanitizer at the rally for the safety of attendees.
Everyone coming is encouraged to wear a mask, though it is not required.
More details on this late breaking news below:
Though the media has consistently criticized President Trump for returning to the campaign trail, he is clearly taking the steps necessary to keep attendees safe.
MAGA rallies allow Trump to speak directly to the American people without the filter of the mainstream media.
No wonder Democrats and the media don't want Trump holding these rallies!
According to The Hill:
President Trump will hold an outdoor rally in New Hampshire this coming weekend, his campaign announced Sunday.
The president’s next “Make America Great Again” rally will gather supporters at Portsmouth International Airport on Saturday, July 11.
The rally, scheduled for 8 p.m., will provide attendees with “ample access to hand sanitizer” and “a face mask that they are strongly encouraged to wear,” according to a press release.
"President Trump’s record-setting accomplishments in record-setting time have improved the lives of all Americans. He rebuilt, restored and renewed our great nation once, and he’ll do it again," Trump campaign spokesman Hogan Gidley said in a statement.
"We look forward to so many freedom-loving patriots coming to the rally and celebrating America, the greatest country in the history of the world," he added.
The event will be the second Trump campaign rally to be held after the coronavirus pandemic shut down public gatherings. The first took place in Tulsa, Okla., last month.
Tickets are already being reserved at a record pace.
Yet people are concerned about a repeat of what happened at Tulsa, OK, where there were empty seats because of apparent Democratic interference.
Will the same happen in New Hampshire?
More details are beginning to surface.
Trump haters and never Trumpers are attempting to sabotage the rally by reserving tickets and then not showing up.
However, a ticket is not required to enter the rally.
It is a first come, first serve basis.
In Tulsa, protesters were seen blocking the entrances, which made it difficult for attendees to get into the arena.
Now, the Trump campaign knows what to expect and has precautionary measures in place to keep patriots safe.
According to the New York Times:
Three days before President Trump’s latest rally, in a state that Hillary Clinton narrowly won in 2016, the only thing that seems clear is that the president’s team has no idea what to expect.
Mr. Trump’s campaign is planning an event at an airport hangar in Portsmouth, N.H. But the state’s governor, Chris Sununu, a Republican, has said he will not be attending. It isn’t clear how many other Republican elected officials will come. The number of attendees could be low, or it could be expansive. There could be lots of people drifting in from Vermont, Maine and Massachusetts.
Campaign officials believe they will be able to prevent the kind of ticket prank that helped turn Mr. Trump’s rally last month in Tulsa, Okla., into a far smaller event than expected — but they still cannot say for sure. And most significantly, there is the looming threat of the coronavirus spreading in a crowd where attendees will be in relatively close quarters, despite being mostly outdoors.
“It’s not what we need right now in terms of Covid,” said Tom Rath, a Republican former New Hampshire attorney general. “We have been very, very fortunate — our number of deaths are quite small.”
Mr. Sununu, in particular, is threading a needle in a year when he is up for re-election in a swing state, and has gotten praise for how he has handled the coronavirus crisis, Mr. Rath said.
In an interview with CNN on Tuesday night, Mr. Sununu said he might have a chance to see Mr. Trump during his swing through the state, but it would not be at the rally on Saturday.
“I’m not going to put myself in the middle of a crowd of thousands of people, if that’s your question specifically,” Mr. Sununu said.
The Trump campaign is attempting a reboot of the reboot that fizzled out just a few weeks ago — the June 20 rally in Tulsa that the president and his team bragged had spurred nearly one million ticket requests. In the end, it drew only about 6,200 people to the 19,000-seat arena.
Since then, campaign officials and the White House have discussed ways to allow Mr. Trump to hit the stump the way he wants to — at big rallies — without endangering people. On Wednesday, a leading health official in Tulsa said that Mr. Trump’s rally probably contributed to a drastic increase in coronavirus cases there.
Also on Wednesday, Max Miller, the head of the advance team at the White House, was announced as the deputy campaign manager for presidential operations. Mr. Trump asked Mr. Miller to assume the role after Brad Parscale, the campaign manager, suggested that Mr. Trump choose a person with whom he has a personal relationship to help oversee the rallies.
For now, the campaign is treating the Saturday evening rally as a potential prototype for future events. Some requests from the president have not yet come to pass, according to a person familiar with the planning, such as his interest in adorning his rally with statues of founding fathers. Preserving statues of historical figures, including from the Confederacy, has become a cause for the president in recent weeks.
And Trump campaign officials dismissed the impact of the teenage TikTok users who claimed responsibility for sabotaging the president’s rally in Tulsa last month. Those ticket requests were counted when Mr. Parscale hyped the rally online, officials said. But they weeded out those requests and still thought that they could fill an arena as well as a space reserved for an overflow crowd with the president’s supporters in a red state that he won by more than 36 points four years ago.
Still, contact information from ticket registration for the New Hampshire rally was being cross-referenced with data in previous lists of supporters, in an effort to better protect themselves from online tricksters.
The more visible problem with the Tulsa event, officials conceded, was that they grossly underestimated how frightened their own supporters would be to attend an indoor rally at all. It was not clear whether they would face the same problem for the event at an airfield in New Hampshire.
Tulsa was not the first time that liberals have attempted to "troll" President Trump.
The reality is that fears over COVID-19 likely kept people from attending the indoor rally.
The Trump campaign is cross referencing sign-ups with their data base of supporters, so the ticket requests will be a strong barometer of Trump's support!
