The President held a "Make America Great Again" rally where he met with his supporters from Erie, Pennsylvania Wednesday. The rally took place just as Hurricane Michael was hitting land on the Florida Panhandle. The rally was the second in a week for the busy President who doesn't seem hindered by his age at all. The President keeps up a busy schedule that could see him fly nearly every day.

The rally was nearly canceled after reports that the weather from Hurricane Michael would be too severe. Trump didn't let a hurricane come between him and his supporters and he kept his promise to campaign for Republicans around the country as the midterm elections fast approach November 6.

The president tweeted that he was on his way to Erie from the White House Wednesday saying, "Departing the @WhiteHouse for Erie, Pennsylvania. I cannot disappoint the thousands of people that are there - and the thousands that are going. I look forward to seeing everyone this evening." The number of supporters who showed up at the rally was so large that there was some overflow in the crowd.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Massive overflow crowd tonight in Erie, Pennsylvania. THANK YOU to everyone who came out and joined us.

Shortly after the rally, Trump said that "all of Pennsylvania, all of America, sends its unwavering love and support" to he states affected by Hurricane Michael. "We just want to wish them all the best, and godspeed, and God bless you all – it's a bad one," the president said. Trump added that the government would "spare no resources" on rescue efforts in the aftermath of the storm.

The nearly three hour long rally held some of Trump's famous talking points from encouraging voters to turn out to talking about how badly no one wants the Democratic party to win. He targeted some Pennsylvania voters saying that "we're putting our coal miners back to work, we're putting our steelworkers back to work."

He also criticized Democratic Sen. Bob Casey saying,"If you want to save American lives, and save American jobs…then you need to vote for a pro-American patriot named Lou Barletta." An endorsement from the President should be a massive boost for Barletta who is running for election to the Senate. Trump also touched on his 2016 victory explaining how state by state, including Pennsylvania, he would win the votes.

Trump even affectionately said that Pennsylvania was like that "person who got away" for Republicans before he won the state. He also said because of "the rules of #MeToo" he couldn't use another expression to describe Pennsylvania.

The rally follows a day after a rally held in Council Bluffs, Iowa Tuesday where he touched on many of his administration's wins and focused on working for the people. At that rally, Trump had some harsh words for the ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein who held up the Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation.

Trump has been visiting Pennsylvania since early August to help campaign for Barletta who was an early Trump supporter. During that rally, Trump brought Rep. Mike Kelly to the stage whose district was where the rally was being held. The district is known to be solidly Republican. Kelly referred to commonalities he shared with the President and said Trump is "the strongest president we have seen in our lifetime."

Barletta himself spoke at the Council Bluffs rally where he spoke about some hot topics such as NFL players protesting by kneeling during the anthem. "We are going to kneel when we pray and stand for the flag," he said. Overall, the back-to-back rallies went well for Trump and his supporters showed up in full force to express their approval.

Google Bill & Hillary Oct. 2018 Schedule (Hurricane dates)

either they on $700 a ticket speaking tour, or on CNN defending Bills rapes saying his 8+/- documented Sexual Assaults was not as serious as Kav's .

Google Obama's Oct. 2018 Schedule (Hurricane dates)

Speaking tour $30 to $1,856 a ticket - TV (CNN-MSNBC etc)

Google Holder (ex-AG) Atlanta campaigning for another Socialist called Stacy Abrams and telling the crowd to attack conservatives.
