President Donald J. Trump’s first-ever rally in the state of Alaska had record-breaking attendance, according to the president.
While he did not mention the exact number, the Alaska Airlines Center, the rally’s venue, has a capacity of 5,000.
“By the way, you set a new record today in the history of Alaska!” Trump informed the crowd in Anchorage, receiving cheers in response. He said the owner of the arena told him that the rally set “a new record that will not be beat.”
“There are thousands of people outside, but this is a new record,” he added. “The arena owner said this is a record that won’t be beat.”
The event, attended by thousands of Trump supporters, was not the first of the president’s rallies to achieve such a feat. In May, his rally in Casper, Wyoming, broke the record for the biggest crowd in the state’s history.
Although the president does not currently have another rally on his schedule, as the November midterm elections draw nearer, Trump supporters can expect an uptick in the frequency of 45’s signature events and – if the Alaska rally is any indicator – their attendance numbers.
