President Donald Trump paid a visit to Rome, Georgia on Sunday evening to rally support of his campaign for re-election. Thousands of people flocked to the Russell Regional Airport to attend the Make America Great Again Victory Rally; it was one of five stops on the campaign trail to close out the weekend (and with just days before Election Day).
President Trump encouraged all those in attendance to go out and vote in this Tuesday’s election. He asserted that although he felt confident that he already has the support of Georgia voters, he still wanted to rally in Rome.
Trump arrived at the Rome airport aboard Air Force One. Many attendees of his rally had been waiting all day long for his arrival.
The Floyd County Democratic Party had intended to hold a Blue Wave Rally in response to Trump’s visit; this rally was cancelled due to security concerns.
