President attracts huge crowd at rally in Granite State
By: Brittany Jennings
President Trump addressed thousands of rally goers in Manchester, New Hampshire.
The SNHU arena was packed with supporters who lined up outside for hours in the sweltering heat before the doors opened. Over 12,000 were inside the arena, shattering all previous records. Outside another 3,000-4,000 supporters watched Trump speak on a big screen.
The crowd was loud, thunderous, and excited to see the president. The enthusiasm hasn’t diminished since the last rally I attended in 2016.
His speech lasted 90 minutes. Trump laid out how the Democratic Party is bad for America and when he wins re-election in 2020, he will “Keep America Great.”
In particular, he took aim at the party’s growing lurch to the hard left.
“Democrats are now the party of high taxes, high crime, open borders, late-term abortion and socialism,” Trump said. “The Republican Party is now the party of freedom. We are the party of the American worker, the American family and the American dream, and I’m fighting for you each and every day.”
He told the people of the Granite State, “Whether you love me or hate me, you have got to vote for me.”
Trump is right: The Democrats are the party of left-wing radicals, led by Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and AOC. If they should win in 2020, America will be transformed into a socialist state. These are the stakes, and most rally attendees agreed.
I met supporters from all over New England, even someone from Ohio. There were also countless “Women for Trump”—proving the Fake News media is lying when it claims the president is despised by female voters.
My biggest surprise was how many pro-Trump LGBT supporters were at the rally. Everywhere I looked there were people with “Gays for Trump” shirts and signs. Moreover, the #WalkAway movement was in full force—former disillusioned Democrats who now back Trump’s America First agenda.
My favorite line of the night: “Our hearts beat to the words of the New Hampshire state motto, ‘Live Free or Die,’” Trump said. And the crowd erupted in applause.
If the massive Manchester rally is any indication, Trump will not only win New Hampshire but the 2020 election in a landslide. Don’t believe the Fake News polls. The Trump movement is alive and well. And it’s on the march.
