The event was held at Wright Bros. Aero hanger at the Dayton International Airport. The photo below shows the crowd when Trump arrived in Dayton, Ohio, as shared by Molly Koweek of WHIO.

And here is the crowd when he finished speaking.

John Bedell of WHIO reported that about 1,200 people had tickets to the event. However, the crowd photos looked larger than 1,200. Dayton Daily News confirmed that 1,200 tickets were handed out by Republican officials before the event.

Dayton Daily News also reported that the crowd size in Dayton numbered about 1,200 in size. Molly Koweek of WHIO reported that there was no room for social distancing in the hangar and most of the people weren’t wearing masks. However, a woman attending told her that everyone had to get their temperature checked before being allowed inside.

Here’s another look at the crowd. Most people were standing up and packed pretty closely together.


Lt. Gov. John Husted Was Booed Twice

Lt. Gov. John Husted was booed twice while speaking to the Dayton crowd before Trump. Once was when he encouraged people to wear Trump masks. Here’s a video of the moment he was booed when encouraging people to wear pro-Trump masks. Husted is a Republican.

Husted protested, telling people that if they had to wear them to a grocery store, they should wear one of Trump’s masks. “But if somebody tells you to take it off, you can at least say you’re trying to save the country by wearing one of President Donald Trump’s masks,” he said.

Husted was also booed when he talked about absentee voting, Cleveland.com reported.

Trump told the Dayton crowd that they were vetting five people for his Supreme Court pick and all of them were women, Molly Koweek of WHIO reported.

Trump told the crowd that they were gathered to protest stupidity, a statement that he’s been saying more frequently at recent events. Trump had previously called his events “peaceful protests.”
