Trump campaign set to hold rally in New Hampshire
President Donald Trump is heading to the battleground state of New Hampshire for his second campaign rally this summer, the campaign announced on Sunday. The rally will be held on Saturday, July 11, at Portsmouth International Airport. Unlike the president’s event last month in Tulsa, this will be an outdoor event.
“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,” Trump campaign national press secretary Hogan Gidley said.
Trump won the New Hampshire primaries in a landslide during the 2016 presidential nomination which many experts credit for launching his successful campaign. He went on to lose the state by less than 3,000 votes in the general election to Democrat Hilary Clinton.
The president’s campaign will again have personal protective equipment on hand for his rally including face masks which the campaign is now strongly encouraging to be used.
“There will be ample access to hand sanitizer and all attendees will be provided a face mask that they are strongly encouraged to wear,” said Gidley.
Trump took heat for his event in Tulsa, OK where virtually no attendees were wearing masks and multiple campaign staffers later tested positive for COVID-19. The event drew a far smaller group than expected but the president pushed back saying millions were watching online and on Fox News.
“Fox had its best Saturday night ratings in nearly 25 years,” said Trump after the event.
The coronavirus hasn’t impacted New Hampshire as much as it has other states. Rockingham County, which includes Portsmouth, has reported fewer than 1,500 confirmed cases and fewer than 10 new cases daily.
The campaign’s website is again issuing a disclaimer for attendees.
“In attending the event, you and any guests voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19, and waive, release, and discharge Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. from any and all liability,” that website reads.
Public health officials continue to advise against large crowds but are a bit more receptive to events held outdoors. Many senior Republican officials had pleaded with Trump and Vice President Mike Pence to consider an outdoor event in Tulsa as well but had no luck.

That’s great. Event taking place 4 miles from where I was born and raised. My liberal family members and former friends, will not be attending. But, hey, what do they know? The intelligent individuals of NH will be there.
While the media kept reporting that only 6000 people attended Trump’s Tulsa rally, the Secret Service reported that they screened and counted 16,000 people as they entered. Then it has been reported that partisan arena staff who were supposed to medically clear people before they would be allowed to get a seat, left their posts, leaving a thousand people who could not go in to get a seat. There would have been a full arena without the partisan plotting.
And don’t forget about the radical lefts who bought a million plus tickets so to keep Trump supporters out of the rally but that didn’t go as planned as we had seen at the rally there were plenty people there to cheer the President.
You continue to hear the concern on the safety of people that may attend the Trump rally’s but yet nothing on the demonstrators that are destroying our country and yet nothing. If there is such concerns for the safety of people why have the Democrats not taken action towards these illegal gathering that are destroying our country Votes.
All further event should be held at Air Force Bass on the Tar Mats lots of room there.
It’s time people stopped underestimating this man’s talents in connecting with people. He has never failed to impress me with his leadership skills. So refreshing.
