On Saturday, President Trump arrived in Green Bay, Wisconsin, for his planned rally, which he chose to host instead of attending the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, following last year’s controversial scene.
The president previously stated his intention to skip the dinner, which he said was “too negative,” and decided to host a rally with a more positive theme, instead.
A crowd of thousands lined up before hand outside the Resch Center in Green Bay, with some having reportedly camped out the night before in preparation for the event.
