C-Span Camera Shows ‘Lots Of Open Space’ At Rally After Trump Claims ‘Thousands’ Couldn’t Get In




President Trump on Monday claimed that “thousands and thousands” couldn’t get into his rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina, but cameras inside the venue showed plenty of open space.

“By the way, I have to say. We have a big crowd in here alright,” Trump told the crowd.

“You have to see outside. Thousands and thousands of people who couldn’t get in,” Trump claimed.



A short time later, C-Span cameras panned to show the back of the room and as VOX’s Aaron Rupar notes, “it’s clear that there’s lots of open space at this Trump rally.”

Pictures from outside the venue showed about a hundred people gathered to watch the president’s speech on a giant screen, far from the “thousands and thousands” Trump claimed were outside.




Before the start of his rally, Trump claimed that his supporters were “soaking wet” due to “bad weather” outside his rally, but several reporters noted that it was hot and sunny outside.
