Donald Trump will speak in Cincinnati, Ohio this evening, his second event of the week following a speech in North Carolina.
Trump’s rally will be held Sharonville Convention Center beginning at 7:00 p.m. Eastern. It can be streamed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting.
The Republican candidate won’t be the only one making an appearance at the Ohio rally. Also scheduled to be there with Trump is Newt Gingrich, the former speaker of the house who is currently the favorite to be Trump’s vice president. According to National Review, a source involved with planning the event described this as a “trial balloon” to see how Trump and Gingrich perform together.
A similar trial took place on Tuesday, when Senator Bob Corker appeared with Trump at a North Carolina rally. Corker, who is being formally vetted for vice president, made a brief statement at the beginning of the rally, saying that he spent the day with Trump and got to see that he is a great guy.
“So many times during these campaigns, people become caricatures of what the media makes them,” Corker said. “And all too often, after a race is over, people realize they never really knew the person.”
Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones, who has been a long-time supporter of Trump, will speak at the Wednesday rally, he announced on Twitter.
A topic of conversation for Trump will likely be Hillary Clinton’s June 6 speech from Atlantic City, New Jersey; the Democratic candidate for president said that Trump has had a history of continuously exploiting working people and intentionally going bankrupt to serve his own personal interests. She also made use of Trump’s favorite word, “rigged,” saying that the Republican candidate rigs the system in his favor.
While he’s in Ohio, Trump is also scheduled to hold a fundraiser, taking the form of a $25,000-per-person round table discussion, according to Cincinnati. RNC chair Reince Priebus will be in attendance.
