Trump Rally in Lancaster a Big Success

Braving the rain and the cold, thousands gathered at Lancaster Airport Monday afternoon for President Donald J. Trump’s re-election rally.

The excitement was thicker than the fog, with supporters coming from as far away as New Jersey, Maryland and West Virginia.

It was the second of three rallies for the president today in Pennsylvania, a key swing state, even as his opponent called a lid for the rest of the week before election day.

The crowd was overflow capacity, with people lined up for hundreds of yards and waiting for hours to get a glimpse of the president.

President Trump hit a lot of his familiar themes, focusing especially on the fact that a Biden-Harris administration would shut down the fracking and oil industry, which has been a key component in keeping Pennsylvania going. In fact, the only thing that has propped up Pennsylvania’s economy in terms of in-migration of businesses over the last decade has been the boom in the shale and oil industries.

Election day is Nov. 3.
