Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, campaign rallies were put on hold back in March. However, President Donald Trump will be resuming his campaign rallies in two weeks.
Brad Parscale, the campaign manager for Donald Trump, explained to Fox News that, “Americans are ready to get back to action and so is President Trump.” Parscale went on to explain, “The Great American Comeback is real and the rallies will be tremendous. You’ll again see the kind of crowds and enthusiasm that Sleepy Joe Biden can only dream of.”
Advisors to the President are still working on determining locations for the rallies and what safety measures they would need to put in place.
The campaign rallies have always been a great way for President Trump to rejuvenate his base.
According to a CNN poll released on Monday, presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden is leading President Trump by 14 points.
The poll showed results from 1,250 people taken between June 2-5. The results showed that 55% of people would vote for Joe Biden, while 41% said they would vote for President Trump.
The poll comes on the heels of an incredibly turbulent few weeks amidst the death of George Floyd, and weeks of ongoing riots in cities which have involved looting, violence, and damage of businesses.
With the election only five months away and fast approaching, the Trump campaign is eager to drum up more enthusiasm amidst a rather trying time period due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The rallies would be a great opportunity to remind the American people that President Trump is in control, and that the country is reopening and rebounding from record-high unemployment numbers at 40 million.
