Trump Left Thousands Stranded At Freezing Omaha Airport After Rally, Some Rushed To Hospital: Report




President Donald Trump reportedly left several thousand of his supporters stranded at Eppley Airfield after his event in Omaha, Nebraska, Tuesday night, according to Iowa Starting Line.

After the President boarded Air Force One and departed the state around 8:45 p.m., many of the attendees, some of whom waited more than four hours in the cold to listen to him speak, stood in the freezing temperatures on a private road in the middle of the airport.



CNN’s Jeff Zeleny reported “thousands” of people were stuck in the cold more than an hour after Trump took off from the airport.

Fox News reporter Jeff Paul tweeted: “I’m told the shuttles aren’t operating and there aren’t enough busses. Police didn’t seem to know what to do.”

According to a Twitter account named “Omaha Scanner,” police officers located two groups of elderly Trump supporters shortly after the event ended who were struggling in the cold. One group was reportedly frozen in the cold and unable to move.




Another complaint included a call for a medic to assist a 68 year-old man who complained of hypothermia and possibly had an altered mental status.

The Iowa Starting Line reports that the event was poorly planned from the beginning.
