The latest rally for President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign was held Friday night at the North Charleston Coliseum in South Carolina, hosting more than 15,000 supporters inside the venue and thousands that were unable to get a seat to watch outside. South Carolina Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Tim Scott (R-SC) traveled to The Palmetto State from Washington on Air Force One along with Scott’s mother Frances, and arrived to cheers at the airport.
As with other Trump rallies, supporters lined up outside for hours ahead of tonight’s rally, hoping to get a seat within the venue. Once door opened, thousands packed into the area in anticipation of Trump’s arrival and speech.
When Trump did arrive, he had the two senators join him onstage during his speech, which discussed mainstream journalism, democratic socialism, his potential political opponents, unemployment, and personal liberties.
Trump carried South Carolina easily in the 2016 presidential election, winning the state with almost 55% of the vote against Hillary Clinton with less than 41% of the vote. As of latest polling averages, Joe Biden is projected to win the Democratic contest in the state, followed closely by Bernie Sanders.
