President Donald Trump’s sold-out Save America rally in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, drew thousands of supporters. Meanwhile, Joe Biden’s Labor Day rallies were reminiscent of his tiny presidential campaign events.
Trump’s Pennsylvania rally marked the first since the FBI raided his residence at Mar-a-Lago last month. Saturday’s rally presented Trump with the opportunity to publicly respond to the FBI’s and Justice Department’s “political” investigations, as well as a chance to boost voter enthusiasm for U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz and gubernatorial nominee Doug Mastriano.
Saturday’s massive crowd in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, was an encouraging sign for Republicans who view the Pennsylvania Senate race as crucial to their effort to take back control of the Senate in the November midterm elections.
Both Oz and Mastriano have received the coveted endorsement of the 45th president, giving the Pennsylvania elections a prominent role in the midterms and placing the state in the national spotlight, as both Republicans and Democrats attempt to gain the support of the state’s voters.
Trump thanked his supporters following the enthusiastic Save America rally, saying, “Thank you to everyone who attended the rally last night. It was a two-hour speech, and the only disappointment was that they were screaming, ‘Please, please, go longer.’ They love our Country, and I love them!”
The massive crowd at the Save America rally demonstrated the 45th president’s continued popularity and the growing enthusiasm of the MAGA movement, despite Biden’s latest divisive remarks where he labeled the MAGA movement an “extremist” and “dangerous” political movement.
Author Nick Adams pointed out, “President Trump shatters venue attendance records every time he holds a rally. Joe Biden can’t even fill a high school gymnasium. What does this tell you?”
The difference in crowd size between Trump’s Save America rally and Biden’s various Labor Day weekend events follows the trend of the 2020 presidential election, with the 45th president continuing to attract record-setting crowds and Biden failing to motivate enough people to fill a small venue’s capacity. As Benny Johnson said, “This never gets old.”
With the November midterms approaching, both Republicans and Democrats will be looking to increase voter enthusiasm with rallies in numerous battleground states. Trump’s Save America rallies could present a challenge to Democrats who seemingly could not compete with Trump’s rally in Pennsylvania over Labor Day weekend.
