Supporters Camping Out A Day Before Trump Rally in Charlotte
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Dozens of supporters are already lining up, a day ahead of President Trump’s campaign rally in Charlotte.
The President will speak on Monday night at 7:00 at Bojangles Coliseum, one day ahead of the North Carolina Primary and Super Tuesday.
“I want him to look out into a crowd that energizes him, and I want to be part of it,” says Sharon Anderson.
She traveled six hours to be first in line for Monday’s Trump rally. She and dozens of others will camp overnight, to guarantee a good spot inside.
“You make lifelong friends out here in line. I’ve met a lot of people that I’ve known for at least three and a half years,” Anderson says.
Extensive set-up continues outside Bojangles Coliseum, with food trucks and merchandise vendors already in place.
“I am extremely excited, I am so looking forward to seeing this great man, this great president of ours,” says Belmont resident Teri Perna.
She’s never been to a Trump rally and didn’t want to miss the experience.
“He loves us, and we love him, and we want to show our support,” she says.
Richard Snowden is a Trump rally regular. This will be his 67th rally.
“I’ve never seen anything close to this, this is truly as President Trump describes, it’s a movement,” Snowden says.
Others like Cameron Briggs will be voting for the first time.
“I like everything about him. So I wanted to come see what he has to say,” he says.
He has an idea what he wants to hear the President speak about.
“I’m hoping that he can talk more about like education and stuff like that because I’m about to go to college,” Briggs says.
Supporters say momentum is on President Trump’s side.
“It’s like a diesel train, it’s just flyin’, his… the momentum he’s got with the people,” says Steve Weiler.
