US President Donald Trump is launching his 2020 reelection campaign Tuesday evening in Orlando, Florida and his supporters reportedly started gathering more than 40 hours before the event, reported the American Greatness.
According to Orlando Sentinel, about 20 people decided to claim their spots outside of Amway Center in Orlando “with tents, sleeping bags and coolers of water in tow.” The first ones came to the spot at 2:30 AM Monday.
“This is the big one,” said one of the early-birds. “This is the mother of all rallies.”
Another one stated that they had come that early to make sure they “could get in the building.”
President Trump tweeted that his first rally “looks to be setting records.”
Big Rally tomorrow night in Orlando, Florida, looks to be setting records. We are building large movie screens outside to take care of everybody. Over 100,000 requests. Our Country is doing great, far beyond what the haters & losers thought possible – and it will only get better!

Gary Beck, the very first person in the line told Click Orlando that “there’s going to be a bunch of people, and it’s going to be pretty intense,” Beck said. “The electricity is going to be high. It’s time for America to get back on its feet and be made better than it’s ever been before.”
Yet, Trump’s reelection campaign rally attracted not only supporters, but protesters as well. Anti-Trump protest is expected to be held the same day just three blocks away from the Amway Center.
