President Trump concludes rally in Pittsburgh

Pennsylvania Headlines

Pittsburgh, PA (WTRF)- President Donald Trump made his fourth campaign stop in Pennsylvania this month in Pittsburgh with more than 3,000 people packed into the Pittsburgh International Airport terminal to see him. 

The crowd at tonight’s rally.

The event was called the “Great American Comeback Event.”

Former Vice President and Democratic nominee Joe Biden made a stop in Pittsburgh just a couple weeks ago.

The President spoke about major issues tonight.

He started with Beaver County’s petrochemical plant, praising fracking and talking down the Democrats’ proposed green plan. 

For the Supreme Court pick, he said he will choose one of the five women he has narrowed his selection down to on 5 o’clock on Saturday. 

President Trump hopes to make a repeat win in the Keystone State as he did in 2016, but that election was close. President Trump won against Hillary Clinton in 2016 by only about 44,000 votes.

Pennsylvania certainly is a battle ground state, but the president said he has it. 

When the president proclaimed, “We got Pennsylania!” the crowd erupted into cheers as they did many times throughout the evening.

He touched on the economy saying he took 6.6 million people out of poverty. He also mentioned that 330 miles of the proposed wall are built.

Regarding COVID-19 restrictions he brought up Pennsylvania Governor Wolfe, calling him ‘bad.’

And of course he mentioned Joe Biden throughout the whole rally. 

Regarding restaurants and businesses, President Trump said, “They’re opening on November 4th.”

President Trump’s daughter Ivanka came onstage tonight but did not speak, and her husband, Jared Kushner, who is senior advisor to the president, was also present.

President Trump is scheduled to debate former Vice President Biden on Tuesday, Sept. 29 in Cleveland, Ohio.
