Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will hold a rally in Jackson, Mississippi this evening, at which he will reportedly be joined by Brexit advocate Nigel Farage.
Trump’s event will take place at the Mississippi Coliseum beginning at 7:00 p.m. Central Time. It can be streamed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting.
Nigel Farage of the United Kingdom’s Independence Party said on Wednesday that he would be joining Trump at the rally, noting that the parallels between Trump and himself are “uncanny” and that he believes Trump will win in a surprise victory similar to the Brexit vote. Trump has previously called himself “Mr. Brexit.”
But while Farage himself said he would be at the rally, Trump’s spokesperson, Hope Hicks, said she would “highly doubt” a joint appearance, adding that Trump and Farage do not know each other.
Many are questioning Trump’s decision to stop into Mississippi, a solidly-red state, rather than a swing state like Ohio, Virginia, or North Carolina. Trump will already be in Mississippi for a private fundraiser on Wednesday, and the candidate has had a history of holding rallies in states he has no chance of losing, like Texas, or that he has no chance of winning, like Connecticut, simply because he was in the area.
However, Trump did hold a rally in the swing state of Florida this afternoon, discussing his plan for creating jobs with supporters in Tampa.
