One of the President’s election officials said on Thursday, Trump will deliver a message about “our great American comeback” at the rally in Billings.
Michael Glassier, Chief Operating Officer for Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., said in a statement: “President Trump will deliver an incredible message about our great American comeback at the rally at the Rimrock Auto Arena in Billings tonight.
“Despite what the fake news media tell you, and regardless of what the Democrat obstructionists say, America is coming back stronger than ever.”
The rally comes only two days after the uproar over journalist Bob Woodward’s new book on Trump, which portrays the Trump White House as chaotic and dysfunctional.
On Wednesday, the American firebrand labelled the highly critical tell-all memoir a “work of fiction” and told reporters in the Oval Office “this book means nothing”.
At today’s rally, an audience of 10,000 is expected at the local arena.
