Trump thanked people for coming by the “thousands and thousands” and added that he didn’t know if a concert outside the Lincoln Memorial had ever been done.
“This started out tonight being a small little concert, and then we had the idea maybe we’ll do it in front of the Lincoln Memorial. I don’t know if it’s ever been done before,” Trump said. “But if it has, very seldom. And the people came by the thousands and thousands, and here we are tonight, all the way back. All the way back.”
“We thought it would be a small concert and tens of thousands of people were there,” Trump said. “It went all the way to the back. They never had so many people. And very few people ever had a concert at the Lincoln memorial.”Trump apparently did not check very far back into history, or he would have discovered that President Obama had a similar concert in 2009.
Or maybe he was just lying, as usual. Anyway, MSNBC estimated the crowd at 10,000.
I was unable to find a decent picture of the crowd at this event, but here is one from Obama's concert:
More to come tomorrow, you can be sure.
