President-Elect Donald Trump will be holding a rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina this week.
This is the second stop on what Trump’s transition team is calling the “Thank You Tour,” during which the president-elect is speaking to supporters in states that helped him win the election on November 8th. North Carolina, a swing state which is worth 15 Electoral College votes, certainly fits into that category.
Here’s all the information you need to know about the Trump rally in Fayetteville:
DATE: Tuesday, December 6th
LOCATION: Crown Coliseum
TIME: Doors open at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The event is scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
HOW TO GET TICKETS: Tickets for the rally are available for free on the official Donald Trump website. They are given out on a first come first serve basis, and only two can be reserved per person. A mobile number is required to register, as a confirmation will be sent to your phone.
This event was originally scheduled to take place in Raleigh, North Carolina, but it was changed to Fayetteville on Friday, according to The News & Observer. Trump last visited Fayetteville when he held a rally on August 9th, 2016.
Trump’s “Thank You Tour” kicked off last week with an event in Cincinnati, Ohio. Although Trump is now the president-elect, this rally felt very much like his traditional campaign stops; Trump talked about beating Ted Cruz in the Republican primaries, he railed against the media, and his supporters chanted “lock her up” in reference to Hillary Clinton. As during the campaign, Trump also used the rally to get a sense of his supporters’ opinions on certain issues, as when he asked them if they agree that burning the American flag should result in prison time and the loss of citizenship. Those in attendance indicated that they are with Trump on this.
On November 8th, Donald Trump won the state of North Carolina, capturing 49.9 percent of the vote compared to Hillary Clinton’s 46.2 percent. This was a very important win for him, and it helped propel Trump beyond 270 Electoral College votes. However, Cumberland County, where Fayetteville is located, voted for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump, with Clinton scoring 56.1 percent of the vote compared to Trump’s 40.2 percent.
