Trump is holding an outdoor rally in New Hampshire despite the Tulsa flop, but the campaign will hand out masks
Donald Trump will be holding out his next reelection rally on Saturday, and his campaign will be dispensing hand sanitizer and face masks after his first post-coronavirus rally was far from expectations amid the ongoing pandemic.
The rally will be held in New Hampshire, a state on the battlefield, at Portsmouth International Airport, the campaign announced Sunday evening.
“There will be adequate access to hand sanitizer and all attendees will be given a face mask that they are strongly encouraged to wear,” the president’s campaign assured.
“It’s more of a precaution,” Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows told Fox & Friends when asked about the masks and hand sanitizer.
“We want to make other people feel safe,” he assured, adding that by handing out the protective gear, the campaign “allows freedom to take place and certainly encourages it to move forward.”
“We are a nation of liberties,” Meadows continued on Sunday morning. “If masks are appropriate … it all tries to make sure we deal with this virus.”

New Hampshire residents do not approve of Trump’s treatment of the coronavirus on a large scale as the number of cases is nearly 6,000
A poll last month found that nearly two-thirds of New Hampshire residents don’t approve of Trump’s approach to the pandemic. Another study published last month shows that alleged Democratic candidate Joe Biden Trump leads Granite in the state of 49 percent to 42 percent of the president.
The campaign’s National Press Secretary, Hogan Gidley, said in the announcement of the demonstration, “President Trump’s record performance in record time has improved the lives of all Americans. He has once rebuilt, restored and renewed our great nation, and he will do it again. ‘
“We look forward to so many freedom-loving patriots coming to the demonstration and celebrating America, the largest country in the history of the world,” Gidley continued.
Trump held his first post-coronavirus rally on June 20 in Tulsa Oklahoma, a deep red state – and the event came after months of campaign campaign amid the coronavirus pandemic.
However, the hyped-up event did not receive the huge crowd promised by the President and his campaign.
Prior to the rally, Trump praised that about a million people had applied for tickets. However, the Bank of Oklahoma Center has a capacity of 19,199 and there were somewhere between 6,000 and 6,500 people present.
TikTok user and K-Pop fans earned the credit before the flop, claiming that they flooded Trump’s campaign with card requests, leading the president to believe there was a rental question.
Undeniably, the rally was disappointing even in a state where Trump won 65.3 percent of the vote – about 37 percent more than Hillary Clinton walked away with.
It is uncertain whether the rally in New Hampshire will be more successful.
The northeastern state turned blue in 2016, but by only 0.3 percent – with Trump earning 46.5 percent of the vote, versus Clinton at 46.8 percent.
Many claimed prior to the rally that hosting it without any social distance or mask requirements could cause a spike in cases of coronavirus.
Eight campaign workers who attended the Tulsa rally were positive for COVID-19.
On Monday morning, more than 2.8 million people in the US were infected with COVID-19 and nearly 130,000 people died after contracting the virus.
In New Hampshire, according to the state’s Department of Health, there have been more than 5,800 confirmed coronavirus infections and more than 380 deaths.
Trump last visited New Hampshire on February 10 – on the eve of the country’s first primary election – for a massive demonstration in Manchester.
