President Donald Trump on Wednesday, June 12, said that there have already been 74,000 requests to attend his campaign kickoff event in Orlando, Florida, on Tuesday, June 18.
President Trump tweeted: “Wow! Just got word that our June 18th, Tuesday, ANNOUNCEMENT in Orlando, Florida, already has 74,000 requests for a 20,000 seat Arena. With all of the big events that we have done, this ticket looks to be the “hottest” of them all. See you in Florida!”
On March 30, President Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale told Fox News’s Jesse Waters that 34 percent of the people who came to the Michigan rally were Democrats.
Parscale said: “I believe it was 34 percent of the people who came to the Michigan rally were Democrats. I think that is a significant number.”
Parscale noted the similarities between the two rallies, which were roughly a month apart.
“From this Michigan rally, you can also see in the data, just like we saw in the El Paso rally, we saw new people coming—Democrats, 30, 40, 50 percent Democrats, we saw blue-collar Democrats, African Americans, Latinos, you see Trump expanding,” he said.
Parscale tweeted on March 28 that over 100,000 people sent RSVPs for the March 28 event, 14,000 people indoors and nearly 20,000 people in the street.
He tweeted: “Ready to rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan! Over 100k RSVPs with 14K indoors and nearly 20k in the streets.
@realDonaldTrump continues to host the biggest rallies in history!”
A massive overflow crowd of thousands of red MAGA-hat-wearing supporters who could not get in to the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan, watched and listened outside to President Donald Trump’s raucous speech via jumbo video screens.
President Trump had sold out attendance at Van Andel. The remaining supporters were outside.
