President-Elect Donald Trump will hold a rally in Des Moines, Iowa this week.
This is part of what the Trump transition team is calling the “USA Thank You Tour,” during which the president-elect will be speaking in key swing states that helped him win on November 8th. Des Moines is a spot Trump visited several times throughout his campaign, and he ended up winning the state of Iowa with 51 percent of the vote.
Here’s all the information you need to know about the Trump rally in Des Moines:
DATE: Thursday, December 8th
LOCATION: Hy-Vee Hall in the Iowa Events Center
TIME: Doors open at 4:00 p.m. Central Time. The event is scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m. Central 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 will be Trump’s second rally of the week, having previously made a stop in Fayetteville, North Carolina. His first “Thank You” rally was held last week in Cincinnati, Ohio. So far, it seems that these events will be quite similar to Trump’s campaign rallies, complete with improvisational remarks and criticism of media coverage. With Trump mostly ducking the press since becoming president-elect, Twitter and these rallies have become his way of communicating directly with the American people without being challenged in any way.
As always, the rally will be available to watch live on YouTube. After this stop in Des Moines, Trump will be holding a rally on Friday in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
