Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump will hold a rally in Johnstown, Pennsylvania this afternoon, his second of three events on Friday.
Trump’s event will take place at the Cambria County War Memorial Arena beginning at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time. It can be viewed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting.
A few hours before this rally, Trump spoke to supporters in North Carolina, a battleground state in the 2016 election. Trump assured his fans that despite nearly every poll showing him behind Hillary Clinton, he’s still convinced that if his supporters turn out, he’s going to win on election day. He also said that many in the Washington establishment, presumably including House speaker Paul Ryan, are “losers” and “babies” who don’t want him to win.
There were a few recent events Trump did not touch on in this speech to the surprise of many viewers. He made no reference to the controversial Al Smith dinner last night, during which Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump delivered unusually viscous monologues. He also did not reference the outrage over his statement that he might not concede the election, which only became more vocal when Trump doubled down on Thursday by joking that he would concede only if he wins.
Trump has a pretty exhausting schedule ahead of him in the final stretch of the campaign, now holding three rallies per day as opposed to the usual one or two. After Johnstown, Trump heads over for another event in Newton, Pennsylvania. He has joked in recent speeches that he may be limping over the finish line come November 8th.
Although Pennsylvania was once thought of as a state that Trump could secure, he now has very little chance of winning it, with Hillary Clinton ahead in Pennsylvania polls by an average of 6.2 points, according to Real Clear Politics.
