Trump spoke at Pitt Greenville Airport, and WITN referred to the crowd as “packed” without estimating an attendance. He spoke for almost 90 minutes, which is on par with the length of his rally speeches before he contracted the coronavirus. The News & Observer, a local North Carolina publication, estimated that there were 2,000 people at Trump’s rally in Greenville.

During his speech, Trump mentioned Dr. Anthony Fauci and was booed when he said, “My friend Dr. Tony, he’s a nice guy.” He mentioned that he would “keep him around” for the time being, even though Fauci was a “Democrat,” he told the crowd.

He also spoke on familiar themes, including his opponent former Vice President Joe Biden and his nomination of Amy Coney Barrett. He spoke glowingly of her performance during the confirmation hearings. He also compared his foreign policy to Biden’s, saying he is tougher and Biden is too soft.

Trump, while speaking about his desire to see schools fully reopen, cited his son Barron’s quick recovery from COVID-19. He also said about coronavirus: “It’s a tricky thing, it’s dust… Whether you wear masks, no masks, but you still need help from the boss.” He then pointed to the sky.
