Faithful is the word that comes to mind when I think about Trump’s support base.
Through rain and shine, there’s sure to be a line, when Trump is about to speak.
Thousands of supporters arrived in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, and lined up to take the shuttle to Arnold Palmer Airport.

CBS Pittsburgh covered President’s Trump arrival to Latrobe and added these details:
President Donald Trump returned to western Pennsylvania for the first time since 2019 on Thursday.
The president arrived for a campaign event at Latrobe’s Arnold Palmer Regional Airport in front of a packed crowd. Hundreds of people, including U.S. Representative Guy Reschenthaler and congressional candidate Sean Parnell, were in attendance.
The president spoke for more than 1 hour and 30 minutes, touching on mail-in voting, jobs, the economy, the coronavirus, the Second Amendment, the removal of statues and his “law and order” message. He also added that he accepted the endorsement from the Boilermakers Local Lodge 154 in Pittsburgh.
Trib Live contributed to the story with this piece:
Frequent and sometimes heavy rains Thursday could not keep supporters of Donald Trump from flooding Arnold Palmer Regional Airport hours before the president’s scheduled campaign rally.
Drenched crowds stood in line at the Unity airport waiting to board buses to take them to a fenced-in holding area in front of the L.J. Associates hangar, where some would wait for about seven hours before the scheduled start of the rally inside the hangar.
By early afternoon, it appeared there were easily more than 1,000 Trump supporters inside the holdings pens, with the only entertainment Trump-leaning political news broadcast on an oversized screen.
Some supporters even camped outside the airport!
Biden’s support base would never do that.
“I’m not kidding, I truly believe that Donald Trump was sent by God." Supporters of President Trump were seen camping out at Arnold Palmer Regional Airport ahead of his rally tonight in Latrobe. https://t.co/TaZiKB2jNB pic.twitter.com/0XeHD2eDfd
