Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will hold a rally in Fredericksburg, Virginia this evening, his last speech of a week that has been defined by a major campaign shakeup.
Trump’s event will take place at the Fredericksburg Expo Center beginning at 6:00 p.m. Eastern Time. It can be viewed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting.
It is expected that this will be another event during which Trump speaks from a teleprompter. Though the Republican candidate had traditionally delivered remarks from the top of his head throughout the campaign season, his last several speeches have been prepared ahead of time.
The content of what Trump has been saying is not substantially different in these latest speeches, but this change seems to be an attempt to avoid unnecessary gaffes that tend to occur when Trump speaks without a teleprompter. During a key time for the candidate, news cycles have continuously been dominated by some of Trump’s more outrageous statements, like his implication that “second amendment people” could do something to stop Hillary Clinton from appointing Supreme Court justices.
Still, even in these teleprompter speeches, Trump still goes off script quite a bit.
Virginia is one of the states to watch in the 2016 election, but at the moment, Clinton holds a pretty substantial lead. Real Clear Politics‘ polling average puts her ahead of Trump by 11 points, 49 percent to 38 percent. FiveThirtyEight currently gives Clinton an 88.3 percent chance of winning Virginia in November.
