CINCINNATI, Ohio (WDTN) – Many rally attendees tell 2 NEWS they left U.S. Bank Arena Thursday night feeling energized about the 2020 election.
Thousands of President Donald Trump’s supporters donned special hats and t-shirts and brought their signs to the rally as the president and vice president discussed several issues.
“It was awesome,” said Kevin Box, who traveled to the rally from Lewis County, Kentucky. “It was energizing and very positive.”
“He talks like everybody,” said Kaye Anthony of Westerville. “He’s a regular person.”
Two of the biggest topics on supporters’ minds were immigration and jobs.
“I liked all his issues,” said Jerry Ferguson of Convington, Kentucky. “I liked the jobs and the economy and all that.”
Aside from some protesters inside the arena, our 2 NEWS crew found some groups of protesters outside the entrances to the venue.
“We just came here to express what we believe in, and that’s what everyone else is doing, and we’re respecting them,” said Isa Walker, a protester.
Despite the protests, many people at the rally said they feel good about President Trump’s chances in 2020.
“Compared to what I’ve seen on the Democratic side, I say he’s got pretty good chances of getting back in,” Ferguson said.
U.S. Bank Arena has a seating capacity of about 17,000 people, but final attendance numbers from the rally have not yet been released.
