President Trump greeted hundreds of supporters gathered outside a Minnesota rally venue Friday night after Democratic state officials limited attendance to just 250 socially distanced seats.
A crowd many times larger than the number of people allowed a seat near Trump gathered outside the gates in Rochester, southeastern Minnesota, images tweeted by journalists indicate.
Trump took a motorcade to the overflow crowd rather than the state-sanctioned stage after disembarking Air Force One.
Trump rallies are known for their enthusiastic supporters. I’ve covered a number of them.
