President Donald Trump will hold a rally in Huntington, West Virginia this evening, during which he says he will make a major announcement.
Trump will be speaking at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena beginning at 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The rally can be viewed live in the embedded YouTube player via PBS.
On Thursday morning, President Trump said that he was going to announce something at this rally, although he gave no clue as to what it might be.
“We’re going to West Virginia tonight, by the way,” Trump said. “We’re going to have a very big announcement, which will be very exciting I think for the media and everyone else. But we have a very big announcement tonight. I believe I’ll be making it in West Virginia, so that’ll be very exciting.”
President Trump has held a number of campaign-style rallies while in office, with the most recent one taking place in Youngstown, Ohio. During this rally, he touted his accomplishments and said that few presidents have gotten as much done as he has this quickly.
“I think that with few exceptions, no president has done anywhere near what we’ve done in his first six months,” Trump said. “Not even close.”
Trump also said that he could be more presidential than anyone else except perhaps Abraham Lincoln.
The president was most recently in West Virginia for a Boy Scouts event, which he essentially treated as a campaign rally. This upset some parents, and the Boy Scouts of America apologized.
“I want to extend my sincere apologies to those in our Scouting family who were offended by the political rhetoric that was inserted into the jamboree,” Chief Scout Executive Michael Surbaugh said in a letter, according to Politico. “That was never our intent.”
