Trump Holds Rally in Mechanicsburg
Even if you didn’t catch the recent articles about how, along with Florida and Ohio, PA is one of the GOP nominee’s must-win states, you would know it from Trump’s frequent visits to the commonwealth.
Another such event occurred last night in Mechanicsburg, a suburb of Harrisburg.
Candy Woodall of the Patriot-News put the attendance at about 3,500 while the candidate asserted that an additional 5,000 had to be turned away. Carley Mossbrook and Steve Esack of the Morning Call reported 3,156 in the gymnasium and another 1,371 in the school’s auditorium.
“Republicans haven’t won in Pennsylvania in 28 years. This year will be different,” he pledged.
While there Trump made national news for his comments about Bernie Sanders’ decision to endorse Hillary Clinton.
“He would’ve been a hero,” the GOP nominee said. “But he made a deal with the devil. She’s the devil. He made a deal with the devil.”
Trump has now made two stops in the Keystone State either during or immediately after the Democratic National Convention, which was held in Philadelphia.
