Pro-Trump 'Massive' Rallies Are Massive Failures

Mar 01, 2017, 00:50

"Rallies across the nation will take place on February 27th at 12:00 pm and March 4th". Additional pro-Trump rallies are being planned for Saturday, March 4.

Supporters were planning to hold a rally for President Donald Trump's "contract with the American Voter" on Route 35 in Middletown on Monday.

Some of the rally organizers came out of the Tea Party, a far-right movement within the Republican Party since 2009. Monday would be the first of the two rallies, also linked to the "Main Street Patriots" group.

Earlier this month, Trump rekindled that campaign energy for the first time since his election in a characteristically freewheeling rally in Melbourne, Florida.

Trump's supporters countered the photos on Twitter, and condemned the "mainstream media" for what they perceived to be deliberate fabrication of the crowd's size.

Main Street Patriots called for Trump supporters to host their own rallies today and the original goal for the event was to have a peaceful rally.

In Atlanta, a crowd of about 200 mostly white supporters gathered on an overcast day.

In Brea, California, in traditionally conservative Orange County, about 60 people stood outside a shopping mall chanting, "Build the wall", and "God bless America, God bless Donald Trump", carrying signs that read, "Trump loves you", and "Trump all the way". "They have been feeling their voices have not been heard".
