Thousands Attend Rally with President Trump

MONTOURSVILLE, Pa. -- Thousands turned out for a rally with President Donald Trump in Lycoming County.

It’s the first presidential visit to the county in two decades, and the president didn’t disappoint those who waited hours to see him at Williamsport Regional Airport on Monday.

The president’s appearance falls on the eve of Pennsylvania’s primary election, and Trump’s visit was both to drum up support for Republican candidates as well as get Pennsylvania pumped for the 2020 presidential election.

As President Trump disembarked Air Force One in Montoursville, the packed hangar waiting to greet him let their support be known and heard. Trump got the crowd fired up as he tested out a new campaign slogan.

“We’ll go ‘Keep America Great’ first, ready? So ‘Keep America Great’ or ‘Make America Great Again?’” the president asked the crowd.

“I like his ideas. He’s not a politician. He seems to be doing great things, and he should continue to do it,“ said Robin Cello of South Williamsport.

“[He] brought the economy up, unemployment’s low. He’s going to build a wall,“ said Ed Gappa of Elysburg.

Thousands turned out for Trump’s rally, waiting all day for the 7 p.m. scheduled event.

This is the first time a president has made a stop in Lycoming County in nearly two decades, and many said they couldn’t pass up an opportunity to see him.

“We love Donald Trump, and we support our president. We just think this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance having him come to our community, so we wanted to support,“ said Casey Cioffi of Williamsport.

“I mean, what more could you ask for? He's the president of the United States, so honestly, it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It's a town of 4,000 people, and the one and only coming here,“ said Bolin Hanna of Montoursville.

President Trump spoke for more than an hour and urged people to get out and vote Republican in Tuesday’s primary.

    FORTISVERITAS, don’t assume that higher education makes you intelligent. It doesn’t. It makes you educated. If you’re an idiot going into college, you’re an idiot coming out. It’s pretty obvious, not just from her lack of writing skills but her overall junior high mentality that Leslie could spend the rest of her life in school and it’s not going to make a bit of difference.

  • Karen Lucas Kutruff

    Thank you, President Trump for taking the time to show your support of our candidate for US Congress in the 12th District, Fred Keller. He’s a good man and will do a great job working hard for us in Washington.

  • Jeff Woehrle

    Thank you, President Trump. Our economy is booming, there are now more jobs than there are unemployed people to fill them, and our country is respected on the world stage once again.

    Keep America Great.

      More than fat Nixon and by far more diverse, intelligent people then you trumpanzee’s.

        ~’THEN’ you TRUMPANZEE’S.’

        1. Misspelled word – it’s supposed to be ‘than’.
        2. Incorrect use of an apostrophe ‘s’ to denote a possessive, i.e. trumpanzee’s what? ‘Trumpanzees’ was correct.
        3. ProTip – When you attempt to assault someone’s intelligence using the written word, it’s a good idea to know the English language first, otherwise it makes you look like the dummy that you are.

        Haha, look at you flinging your pseudo intellectual sentence structure… .trumpanzee troglodyte

      • yabbadabbadude

        It’s not sentence structure, it’s spelling and grammar. Keep digging, dummy. (BTW, ‘pseudo intellectual’ should have been hyphenated, as it’s what’s known as a compound adjective.)

        Let me guess Leslie, you have a variety of degrees from higher education so you decide to look down upon those that don’t. How nice of you. My experience after being around for six decades is that bloviating, pompous, arrogant, self-righteous people like yourself are intolerable to be around. Whereas the average person that works with their hands and those that you loath so much would give you their coat and stop to change your flat tire if you had one. Enjoy the view from your tower, I’m sure it’s lonely up there.
