Forty-fifth President and leading 2024 presidential candidate Donald Trump promised to defund and “not give one penny” to any kindergarten through college school mandating vaccines or masks while speaking to a massive crowd in Davenport, Iowa on Monday to give an address on education.
“I will not give one penny to any school that has a vaccine mandate or a mask mandate from kindergarten through college,” Trump said.
Trump’s speech was held at the Adler Theatre which offers seating for 2,400 people. Despite the event not being advertised heavily, Trump massively overflowed the theater with a crowd much larger than 2,400 people and a crowd of over 500 people waiting outside.
Videos show a massive two-mile-long line of loving supporters there to see President Trump wrapping around the block of the Adler Theatre.
The temperature of Davenport, Iowa during Trump’s speech was 32 degrees Fahrenheit, according to the Weather Channel.
Before Trump’s speech began, he visited a Machine Shed BBQ to a cheering crowd where he is seen on video being hugged by supporters and taking photos with others including a pair wearing “Trump won” t-shirts.
On Rumble, while Trump was speaking, over one-million people watched his speech via his personal channel, over 500,000 people watched via the Right Side Broadcasting Network (RSBN) channel, and over 100,000 people watched Trump’s speech via Real America’s Voice (RAV) channel. An additional 30,000 people watched Trump’s speech through the pro-Trump social media platform Gettr. Trump’s online viewership is continuing to skyrocket.
During Trump’s speech, he also vowed “within hours of my inauguration,” to “cancel every Biden policy that’s brutalizing our farmers. Every single one of them.”
Trump is no stranger to overflowing venues, either! Trump overflowed the venue of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) with a huge crowd of supporters even including the former President of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro.
Trump’s CPAC speech was held in the Potomac Ballroom of the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center. The ballroom can hold 5,520 people seated. Trump’s audience was packed to the brim and there were even more people watching from outside of the ballroom.
