President Trump has come under fire this week after thousands of his loyal supporters were left stranded in freezing conditions following his Omaha rally.
Here’s what we know so far…
After departing his Omaha rally in the comfort of Air Force One, thousands of his supporters were left stranded on the tarmac for hours in freezing temperatures.
And, as a result of the shocking blunder, several supporters were hospitalized.
Because we are mere days away from the highly anticipated election.
But it seems that he has some serious competition from his Democratic rival, Joe Biden.
But it has been powering on ahead… despite many major setbacks.
Entering into the debate, Biden had a significant and persistent lead in the polls.
Biden’s lead was compounded by a cash crunch in Trump’s campaign, with Biden’s campaign donations improving significantly.
And in the weeks running up the debate, he attempted to cast doubt over Biden’s abilities, claiming that he was suffering from dementia and that he was taking performance-enhancing drugs.
Trump even requested Biden to take a drug test before the debate.
Both Trump and Biden seemed to be having a field day throwing insults at one another, calling each other out, and constantly interrupting each other.
And it didn’t leave a pleasant taste in the mouths of viewers who were, quite frankly, left feeling disgusted at what they had just witnessed.
And the people of America have never before felt so disheartened in the run-up to an election.
And things took an ultimate turn for the worst when at the start of October, the President and the First Lady, Melania, tested positive for COVID-19.
Trump insisted that they immediately went into self-isolation together and that they felt fine, but after just a few days, he was hospitalized at Walter Reed National Military Centre.
He was discharged just a few days later and insisted to the nation that all we need to do is to “learn to live with COVID”, which was very concerning to hear.
And, ever since, he has continued to throw his notorious rallies with gusto… And no social distancing, of course.
The president has been flying all over the country and encouraging his supporters to gather in the masses to greet him… which goes against every coronavirus precaution taken this year.
He certainly does not!
And regularly takes to Twitter to thank his supporters for their loyalty.
And it resulted in thousands of these loyal supporters being stranded in freezing temperatures for hours.
It was reported that, after Trump departed in Air Force One, a crowd of his supporters – who had already been waiting in the cold for around 4 hours before the rally – were left stuck on the tarmac.
It was not a small crowd.
Well, according to the Washington Post, the buses that were supposed to ferry the attendees from the airport road to a distant parking lot couldn’t navigate the jammed airport roads.
With one of the groups being completely frozen in the cold and unable to move.
So what has President Trump had to say on the matter?
Trump is yet to address the issue with the rally’s transport, with the Trump campaign simply telling Omaha World-Herald that there were “plenty of buses” but they were delayed by the 2-lane airport access road.
It was his buses that caused the delay, after all.
We wish those in hospital a speedy recovery.
