Trump Supporters Camping Out Ahead of Massive Orlando MAGA Rally and Festival…

President Trump will be officially kicking off his 2020 re-election bid tomorrow night in Orlando, Florida, at the Amway center.  While the MAGA rally is scheduled to begin at 8:00pm ET, campaign organizers have had such an overwhelming demand for attendance, they have turned the entire day into a MAGA festival called: “The 45 Fest”.

The Amway center, home to the NBA’s Orlando Magic, will hold between 20,000 to 30,000 depending on layout.  However, jumbo screens are being constructed outside the arena for those who attend the festivities but don’t make it inside.

There will be live music, food booths and trucks, street vendors and a day of MAGA festivity prior to the main event at 8:00pm.  According to local media people began lining up Monday morning and plan to camp out overnight amid a mass of MAGA patriots and supporters.

ORLANDO – With tents, sleeping bags and coolers of water in tow, Donald Trump supporters began lining up early Monday for Tuesday’s campaign rally in Orlando, nearly two full days before the event.

Outside the Amway Center, where President Trump will officially kick off his 2020 re-election bid at 8 p.m. Tuesday, about two dozen people and counting had staked out a spot along Division Street as of Monday morning. The line had grown to about 50 as of 3 p.m.

“This is the big one,” said Jennifer Petito, 54, of Melbourne. “This is the mother of all rallies.” Petitio, who was wearing a pink “Women for Trump” hat and a red-and-white striped fanny pack, was second in line. She said she got there around 2 a.m. — 42 hours before the rally’s start. (read more)

    At first I was nervous to go alone but decided to go but now I know I will never get in, I leave work at 430pm so I am going to watch in the comfort of my home. There are three planned protests but they are keeping the protesters far form the Amway Arena so there would not be any clashes. Sundance are you coming up?

      If there are ‘protests’ like the protests that were supposed to happen all over the country yesterday,especially the fail in Portland — those dozen protesters are going to be very lonely 🙂

      Actually, it will be a fine chance for the 100,000 strong MAGA happy people to convert them.

          Talk to your Campaign Staff, Joe. They’re trying to “pack the house”, if you know what I mean.

          Than again, the walls are probably closing in a little too.

      I will pray for PDJT and everyone planning to attend the big rally tomorrow. It sounds fantastic. I hope all will end well, as today the huge celebration of the Raptors win in Toronto Ontario 2 million people in attendance, there were 2 shootings. Sad. I always have a nervous feeling when there are too many people anywhere. God Bless PDJT and all the people there tomorrow, as I will watch and cheer from Canada.

      Go, go, go. You will not be alone. You will be surrounded by friends, brothers and sisters. It is amazing to go to a Trump Rally. I have a friend in FL who gets off work at 5:30 and he is going with his sons and about 15 of his friends.

      We are in this fight together. You need to see your community to realize how big, loving and energized we are. No harm will come to you. The protests are all bluster to scare people.

      Please go. You will never regret it. You will never forget it.

I’m staying 1/2 mile from the Lincoln Memorial. This is so meaningful to me (I remember my father reading the inscription on the memorial to me when we visited the capital when i was 7 years old). You will be amazed at how you relax when among like minded patriots. It’s an amazing and I want to be a part of this amazing celebration our President has planned.

            Somewhere along the way i thought the President said he’s attending tailgate parties in the parking lot. He expects those to start tonight. he is soooo jazzed for this Rally, i expect we will all be crying with joy through it. Every minute I will be praying for his protection!

Now, that I know this I have people I can go with next time. There are so many more of us then them it is just no one talks about it for fear of retribution. Sad but true,

      I always caution people to remember the recent midterm election. PT campaigned hard for the republicans, had many full house rallies and still the Dems managed to grab the House control.

      We cannot ever let down our push to get our voters out in large numbers. We need to press for more voter fraud preventative measures including changing laws about votes being “found” days after an election and counted. It is imperative we don’t think because he has large crowds that we don’t have to work hard on all fronts to make sure 2018 is not repeated for this very important Pres. election.

Enduring rain, wind, mud, hot sun, not enough food or porta-potties…”

      As I’ve stated several times previously and will continue to warn until election day 2020…
      I believe the Dems have already conceded that President Trump will be re-elected, any idiot can see the 10’s of thousands who attend his rally’s as opposed to any of the Dem hopefuls. They’ve thrown every thing in the book at him, tried every honest and dishonest trick to discredit him to no avail for the vast majority of voters.
      My warning is watch out for the Senate and House races, I think this is where the Dem leadership is focused – increase the House majority and take over the Senate, then they can effectively ‘control’ his second term. And state races are much easier to cheat than the national election.

      I was one of the supervisors managing the opening of a new Sears-Roebuck store in Middletown, NY, when one of the locals who was hired to pull tandem (shelving) said there was a big party happening up the road, “There were at least 40 thousand people there,” So after work, 4 of us drove up in the rain on Thursday evening to see the spectacle. After all, the population of Middletown was IIRC correctly only 38K. Low and behold, therre were at least a couple of hundred thousand people dancing in the rain. Had to park about 3 miles from the farm. John Sebastian was singing “She’s a Lady” when we arrived, We stayed a couple of hours, got soaked and went back to our motel. I don’t think we knew it was called “Woodstock” until we heard it on the news the next day. Some party!
