Trump delivered his Oshkosh speech at the Wittman Regional Airport on Monday, after speaking in Minnesota, Journal Times reported. More than 100 people attended and Trump joked that it was supposed to be a small event.
Trump’s speeches came on the same day that the Democratic National Convention is launching, with speeches later tonight by Michelle Obama and Bernie Sanders, among many others.
Trump joked at the beginning of his Oshkosh speech that this would be called a “peaceful protest” so they could do whatever they want at the event. He also talked about how Obama’s speech tonight was pre-recorded and mentioned that he will be doing a live speech from the White House next Thursday as part of the Republican National Convention.
He then asked if Joe Biden was going to be taping his speech. Biden is not planning to tape his speech. Both he and Kamala Harris have said that they are going to be giving their speeches live. Obama and other speakers are recording theirs in order to avoid technical glitches.
Trump also claimed during his speech that the pandemic numbers were better than many other countries, but he added that COVID-19 is “the worst thing to happen in this world since 1917.” He also spoke about disagreeing with defunding the police, which got cheers from the crowd in response.
Although some referred to Trump’s speech today as a “rally,” the Trump campaign itself never called the speech a rally.
Tomorrow, Trump’s campaign has an official event listed as taking place at The Defense Contractor Complex – Joe Foss Hangar in Yuma, Arizona at 1 p.m. MST, with doors opening at 10 a.m. The event is called, “President Donald J. Trump to deliver remarks on Joe Biden’s failures on Immigration and Border Security” and requires that people register for first-come-first-served tickets online. The tickets don’t guarantee attendance, but help the campaign know how many to expect.
The events from Monday were not listed on the campaign’s official website.
