Red Wave: ‘Thousands Upon Thousands’ of Trump Supporters Turn Out in California
WH press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany tweets video of crowds
'Thousands upon thousands' of supporters of President Donald Trump turned out in Orange County, California on Sunday as the president arrived for a fundraiser.
The White House press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, tweeted a video showing the huge turnout as thousands cheered the presidential motorcade as it made its way to Newport Beach.
Tickets for the event ranged from $2,800 per individual to up to $150,000 per couple.
“Thousands upon thousands lined for miles along our motorcade route in CALIFORNIA to cheer on President @realDonaldTrump!!!!!” McEnany tweeted.
Newport Beach is considered a conservative-leaning pocket in the blue state.
Orange County has historically been a Republican stronghold; however, in 2016, it voted by a narrow margin in favor of Hillary Clinton.
Clinton won 49.8 percent of the vote.
Trump won 44.9 percent.
The turnout comes a day after Trump mocked Presidential candidate Joe Biden joking that he may be forced to "leave the country" if he loses the election to the former vice president.
Trump described Biden as "the worst candidate in the history of politics" to laughter from the crowd.
"I shouldn't joke because you know what?" Trump asked his supporters.
"Running against the worst candidate in the history of presidential politics puts pressure on me," Trump told the audience.
"Could you imagine if I lose? My whole life, what am I going to do?" he asked as the crowd laughed.
Earlier this month, polls revealed Trump had taken the lead over Biden in Florida.
The poll, from Orlando’s Fox35 and InsiderAdvantage, shows incumbent Trump up over Biden 46 percent to 43 percent in the Sunshine State.
The survey was conducted from October 6 to Oct. 7, among a pool of 400 likely Florida voters.
