Trump Supporters Stuck in Cold for Hours After Omaha Rally Due to Bus Fiasco
President TrumpThe rally at an Omaha airport left hundreds of its supporters feeling chilled … and many ended up in hospital !!!
After Trump finished addressing a large crowd on Tuesday night at the Eppley airfield in Omaha – where he said: “Is there a place you’d rather be than a Trump rally about an evening at 10 degrees? ” – the bundled up Prez returned to Air Force One and flew away … as the temperatures got even colder.
Now Trump was exaggerating – it wasn’t 10 degrees – but the temperature was below freezing and when his supporters had to wait to get on shuttles to take them back to remote parking lots it became a major problem.
The buses could not accommodate the number of people waiting, leaving participants standing in the cold for hours … including many elderly people.
Police tried to help those most at risk to warm up and get to safety, but at least 7 people were reportedly taken to local hospitals. After waiting for hours, many people abandoned the buses and went to their vehicles about 3 miles from the rally site.
According to the Trump campaign … he provided enough buses for everyone, but there was a traffic jam on the 2-lane road leaving the airport after the event.
Typically, Trump rallies are inherently dangerous due to the lack of facial coverings amid the COVID-19 pandemic – but at the end of October in Nebraska there are other risks as well.
