President Trump Announces ‘Big’ Rally in Pennsylvania

HARRISBURG — President Donald Trump announced he will be holding a “BIG” rally in Pennsylvania.

The president made the announcement on Twitter on Saturday.

Details were revealed on Trump’s campaign website.

The event will be held at the PA Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg next Saturday, April 29 at 7:30 p.m. The rally marks Trump’s 100th day in office.

The rally will take place on the same day as the annual White House correspondents’ dinner, which the President has declined to attend.

The announcement comes just a day after Trump tweeted about the “ridiculous standard” of the 100-day construct for measuring the achievements of a new administration.

The 100 days measure is linked to President Franklin Roosevelt, who signed 15 major pieces of legislation early in his presidency; the time frame is when a president’s power and influence with Congress is likely the greatest.

Trump himself talked repeatedly about his first 100 days when he was campaigning last year. It was part of his stump speech in the final week of the campaign — he asked his crowds in Minnesota, Florida, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and elsewhere to “imagine what we can accomplish in the first 100 days of a Trump administration.”

And on the biggest stage of all, as he accepted his party’s nomination at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, he promised to ask every government department to provide a list of wasteful projects for him to eliminate in his first 100 days.

Trump’s rallies have been organized and funded by his presidential reelection campaign rather than the White House — a move that has raised eyebrows among campaign finance experts.

The decision to hold campaign-funded rallies gives Trump more flexibility — from deciding who’s allowed in to helping the campaign build out its database of supporters’ contact information.

Michael Glassner, the Trump campaign’s executive director, has said the move has allowed Trump to rely on the campaign’s “very effective method of promoting his appearances and filling these venues.”

It also means the campaign can use campaign dollars to advertise the events and sell campaign merchandise — think “Make America Great Again” hats — to all the eager supporters who attend, Glassner said.

    I’m glad to see the Butthurt Brigade is still going strong. Suck it up liberal snowflakes…WE WON! Your impotent rage makes my heart light. Almost four more years of happiness to go. :)

  • JessicaInWiliamsport

    Interesting that he’s still campaigning, I wonder if he’ll ever actually work? But then again, he screws that up — maybe it’s better this way. Let them all stroke each other while the grown ups do important stuff.

    You don’t have to be negative to make a point. In fact, positive makes the point better.

    If the President were to not speak to the people, you would be cursing him out for that. SO, when he does speak to the people, ….. Per Aesop: YOU all blow hot and cold.

    If your candidate lost, she did so because about 150,000 of the votes she took for granted didn’t get off their back pockets because YOU didn’t get out the votes. IF YOU WANT TO WHINE, go to the liquor store.

    Go to the speech and hear him out or FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE.

    O great, the fascist and chief is coming to PA. Talking about how funneling more illegitimate money to rich people through tax breaks will somehow mysteriously benefit opportunities for young people. How naive and stupid. People wonder why young people are leaving this state in vast numbers. Probably because they’re tired of being part of a constituency that is so ignorant and misinformed.

  • WarningFakeNews

    A lot of people here have their panties in a wad over this, Trump’s doing something right!

  • magicmikexxsm

    It’s nice to see a president who doesn’t forget about the people once elected,like obama did……Once these guys take office they forget about us the little people, they hide behind the white house walls, but not Trump he’s a man of the people, he holds these rallies to keep people energized…

    • HA!!

      Trump hides everything inside those White House walls. He won’t even let anyone see the logs of who comes and goes. He said he’d be more transparent but that was a lie, too!!! Obama at least released that info. Trump won’t tell you who he meets with and for what reasons at Mar-A-Lago. We just need to pay for that entertaining!! Yes, he’s most definitely meeting with the little people there, isn’t he? Probably asking their opinions regarding bringing HIS corporations and jobs back to America while eating that beautiful chocolate cake, RIGHT? Another lie from him!!!

    • Givemeabreak

      So he holds rallys with tax payer money for his supporters to not feel like they are forgotten about? What a great President.
      So nice of him to take time away from his weekly Mar-a-largo vacay.

    • Oh Mikey

      Another swaggering Trumper. News for you, he’s already told you what he thought of you during his campaign. He loves the uneducated! Get off your knees and close your mouth.

  • Jimbo

    So. The campaign is on. In his own words, no Supreme Court nominees get confirmed during a campaign. Pretty pathetic excuse for a President. One who considers a March for Science a protest march. Sad.

  • faceplanter

    It looks like alot of disappointed Hillary voters on here. It’s ok folks, she’s the only one to blame for her bobbleheaded loss. It’s not your fault.

  • BZ22

    Will he be announcing that he’s taking Barletta and Marino back to DC with him when he leaves? Hope so! Add a couple more of his “best and brightest” to his big top show!!

  • Feed Me More

    he should start paying back the taxpayers for all of his golf trips, the most ever in any presidency, all he has done since elected is golf and drop the 2nd biggest bomb made in the middle of the desert, wasting a HUGE amount of money that could have been used to benefit americans that need it, but republicans dont care about our country just their wallet and how much money they can stuff in it

    • Snowflake melter

      So when is Obama paying back all of the money for his trips and his families? Oh that’s right you don’t count those snowflake.

      • HA!!

        When are you going to OWN that Trump is on track to spend more in ONE YEAR on Mar-A-Lago than Obama spent in ALL EIGHT YEARS? Trump told you he would pay for these trips but instead we’re paying for his Mar-A-Lago!!! He also said he wouldn’t have time to leave the White House or play golf since he would be so busy! He’s played about 20 rounds and Obama hadn’t played one yet in his first term!! Soo many, reeeeaaaallly, yuuuuge, bigly lies he told you and you bought them hook, line and sinker!!

    • Silverfish Imperetrix

      President Trump’s first 100 days are just up, yet his golf trips are “the most ever in any presidency”. LMAO

  • Beingrealhere

    What other famous world leader held “huge rallies” while already in power? Do some research. Here’s a hint.. initials A.H. This person also encourage distrust of the media.

    • Beingrealhere

      I wasn’t trying to be original. I just thought it should be obvious, but many are not seeing it. Sometimes you need to point out the obvious.

    • Silverfish Imperetrix

      Aww, how cute. You read the liberal children’s book “Everybody I Don’t Like Is Hitler”, didn’t you? Don’t forget to get it back to the library on time.

    • Beingrealhere

      Silver, your comments tell a lot about you intellect. I won’t waste any more time with them. Enjoy your small mind.

    • Silverfish Imperetrix

      No problem. If you think you see Hitler’s face on a piece of toast, just ignore it.

  • Silverfish Imperetrix

    Brilliant move on President Trump’s part. The media is nothing but his enemy, and now he’s given them the choice of going to their slobber fest or covering his rally. He should hold a press conference first too. That would draw even more of them.

    • alejandro jiminez

      you remind me of a hype-man. Nothing you say has any real effect on people but you’re still just out there screaming in the back-ground like an idiot.

      • Silverfish Imperetrix

        Like Jill Stein and her election recount campaign? Too bad most of the snow’s melted. You need to sit down in some to soothe the pain.

  • the great trumpkin, with tiny hands

    So he needs his fragile ego stroked and he knows where to find the rubes to do it. Sad, very sad.

  • Smh

    Why is he not sitting in the white house figuring out what to do about north Korea? Why is he WASTING taxpayer’s money on campaigning ? Since he’s been president he’s done nothing but waste time and money!! Just like in his businesses!! He’s already been elected, now he should be doing his JOB! NOT campaigning!! This is really scary.

  • RicU.

    Saturday, in Harrisburg, means he doesn’t expect many government employees or legislators to be there. Decent tactic. The Legislators will have left town on Thursday, as usual.
