Trump To Hold Campaign-Style Rally in West Virginia To Boost Support BasPresident Donald Trump will hit the campaign trail once more with a campaign-style rally set next week in West Virginia.
The President’s re-election campaign announced Friday the West Virginia rally and it will mark the second rally of the President in two weeks, also as part of his efforts to bring his message straight to the American public.
Trump scored his upset win over Democrat Hillary Clinton in last year’s dramatic presidential election primarily on the strength of the connection he built with blue-collar Americans left disappointed and let down by the Obama administration and his liberal allies. Now, the President seems as determined to boost his base anew in the face of challenges in Washington.
The announcement also came just hours after the repeal of Obamacare failed in the Thursday Senate vote. The President aired his frustration over the voting results with a Twitter post. He wrote: “3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down. As I said from the beginning, let Obamacare implode, then deal. Watch!”
The three Republican lawmakers who made the crucial vote against the repeal that defeated the measure are GOP Sen. John McCain (Ariz.), Senators Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Lisa Murkowski ( R-Alaska). The trio joined every Senate Democrat who voted against the measure.
The campaign-style event will be held on August 3 at a 9,000-seat areana in Huntington, which is remembered for being the second-largest city in a state where Trump won big in last year’s presidential election.
Trump last visited West Virginia on Monday where he gave a speech to the Boy Scouts. He also had a campaign rally last week in Youngstown, Ohio.
Trump is widely expected to fire up his supporters anew with the rally.
