Donald Trump will hold ANOTHER campaign rally in West Virginia next week, where he’ll seek to fire up supporters even as his administration struggles to advance its agenda, or pass any meaningful legislation.
The campaign-style event will take place on Aug. 3 at a 9,000-seat arena in Huntington, the second-largest city in a state Trump won in the 2016 presidential election.
Trump has already held a number of campaign rallies since he was inaugurated six months ago, which is remarkably unusual for a president this early in his first term.
He’ll be seeking to generate momentum for his stalled agenda and goodwill among his supporters after the Senate dealt him a stunning defeat Thursday night on healthcare.
In a shocking 49-51 vote, the Senate failed to pass a bill repealing parts of ObamaCare. GOP Sen. John McCain cast the crucial decisive vote to sink the measure. He was joined by Sens. Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, as well as every Senate Democrat.
Trump vented his frustration on Twitter early Friday morning, tweeting, “3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down. As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal. Watch!”
