Ahead of President Trump’s first in-person event since his COVID-19 diagnosis, large crowds made their way to the White House’s grounds Saturday.
They gathered on the South Lawn, where Trump delivered a speech from the White House’s balcony. Hundreds attended the event.
Earlier today, the president’s supporters, donning “Make America Great Again” hats and blue “We The Free” t-shirts, rallied at The Ellipse, the park south of the White House lawn. Some attendees did not appear to be wearing masks.
The Trump campaign said all attendees wouldbe given a temperature check and that the wearing of masks wouldbe encouraged.
