Looking to build momentum off of his widely praised South Dakota Independence Day address, Donald Trump moved quickly to announce his next campaign event, this one to be held outdoors in New Hampshire on Saturday.
After Trump’s late-June campaign rally in Tulsa — which many critics have characterized as a disaster — Trump received a major boost from his sensational speech at Mount Rushmore on July 3.
Trump’s campaign announced on Sunday that the next event will also be held outside, a tacit acknowledgment that holding indoor rallies may give too much ground to Democrats and media organizations looking to curtail his campaign activities.
Saturday’s event is scheduled for 8 p.m. at New Hampshire’s Portsmouth International Airport, the Trump campaign revealed in a statement.
“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,” said Trump 2020 national press secretary Hogan Gidley.
In another attempt to avoid the bad press related to coronavirus concerns, the Trump campaign made it clear that wearing face coverings will be strongly encouraged — and provided by event organizers — and that there will be “ample access to hand sanitizer” at the venue as well.
This will be Trump’s first appearance in the battleground state of New Hampshire since February.
