Thousands Gather for Trump Rally in Lycoming County

MUNCY TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Excited supporters of President Donald Trump boarded buses early Monday, already heading to his rally in Lycoming County.

President Trump will be in central Pennsylvania Monday night, and thousands of people are expected at his rally in Montoursville.

Most of them will be taking a bus in from the Lycoming Mall parking lot.

President Trump's rally begins at 7 p.m. at the Williamsport Regional Airport in Montoursville. Gates open at 4 p.m., but this is really an all-day event for thousands of people.

Just after 9 a.m., a crowd of people took one of the first shuttles into Montoursville.

With around 10,000 people expected to make the trip, there will be minimal parking in the borough. Most are expected to travel to the Lycoming Mall and take a shuttle into the borough.

Attendees will not be able to bring bags, coolers, and mugs into the event, but with a whole day ahead of them, people did bring chairs and food with them.

Vendors selling shirts and hats have started to set up in the parking lot at the Lycoming Mall and most people were wearing President Trump gear. Many people we spoke with decided to take off work to get to the rally early for a chance to see the president in their community.

"I thought we are going to have to get here early because I went to a rally in Wilkes-Barre and we got in by the skin of our butts. We didn't even have a seat to sit in, we sat on the cement steps. I told my son-in-law if we are going, it's going to be an all-day thing and we need to be there early, so here we are," said Brenda Peace.

Some traveled from out of state to wait for a chance to hear the president speak.

"We came from New Jersey to see President Trump because he is one of the best presidents we have ever had," said Tillie Cocchia.

"We want Trump to come in for the next four years and then we'll vote Pence in after that," added Trump supporter Chuck Gordner.

"It's just amazing when you see all those people and you see Sarah Sanders and Kelly Anne Conway, and, of course, when you see Trump everyone is raging. It's going to be awesome," said Peace.

Buses will be dropping off and picking up people before and after the event.

      Yep. Shuttle buses to avoid all of those cars around the venue itself. You couldn’t even figure that out.

    All I keep hearing is how the polls show that Biden would beat Trump if election was held today. Didn’t the polls have Hillary way ahead of Trump???? Look what happened. Polls are a joke and left leaning.

      Biden? Hmmm …… never heard of him, or anything he’s ever accomplished. I even heard he was from PA ….. who knew, and better still …. who cares ~8^)

      That’s the problem of being satisfied with conservative media as somehow being factual. The polls said she’d win the popular vote. But, the polls also showed the swing states as being a toss-up, and didn’t predict for either. Trump only won the entire election by about 80,000 votes in those swing states, just giving him the electoral win.
      And, the polls were correct in Hillary winning the popular vote of 3 million more individual separate people voting for Hillary than voted for Trump. Your right wing media spun that as if the one part of the polls predicted the final outcome incorrectly.
      And, now with Trump, millions of americans that you have contempt for, are having more difficult lives. Really doesn’t matter if you reply with more right wing calculated arguments.

        So everyone was filthy rich when Obama was Prez and then scrooge Trump stole all their homes? Or you just sad cause the media pulls your emotional strings so easily?

        Larry, you need to let 2016 go, the obsessing isn’t healthily, she lost, even after cheating, even after rigging, she lost. She also committed treason with Obama, so prison and/or a swift execution would be the true prize. Stop trying to overthrow a duely elected president.
        …and The only reason anyone on the left is having a “harder life” is because of their own doing with their TDS.

      • fortisveritas

        “Having more difficult lives” How so, Larry? By having to work instead of being on welfare? By being deported to their home country because they were here illegally? By not being assigned to active combat roles because they don’t know what gender they are? Or because they have TDS which won’t be cured until 2024? Please elaborate.

      Hard to predict the outcome of an election when one of the candidates is committing treason to win.
