Trump’s New Hampshire Rally
“President Trump spoke at the Manchester NH rally to crowds both inside and outside the venue. The rally in New Hampshire came after Trump drew around 17,000 people to a rally in Cincinnati, Ohio. While some expressed doubt about the claim, Manchester Deputy Fire Marshal Mitchell Cady said the crowd on Thursday numbered “just over 11,500.”
“And Based on the calculations we use for crowd load, we came to either 8 or 9 [thousand],” for outside the arena”

Rudy Giuliani took to Twitter after the New Hampshire rally to praise Trump, saying he hadn’t been to a Trump rally since the 2016 campaign and called them “masterful performances.”
This is a tour de force which is equivalent to Reagan and Clinton but has much bigger audiences and he excites them much more. He is one of our great campaigners which is how he defeats a hostile media.They don’t get it. pic.twitter.com/BRXLg71L6o

We got there around 6:10 pm…(way too late) and got in a huge line. We had to walk past the small group of protesters who were separated by a police barricade and police watching on. Nothing too crazy there. Some rhetoric as usually as well. President Trump opened speaking about his new campaign slogan and wanted the audience’s reaction…
So “Keep America Great” becames his official campaign slogan.
Here is a short in-depth look at how Trump’s campaign is running so far from the Washington Post…
“Mr.. Trump’s rally was the first since mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, killed 31 people and wounded dozens more. The shootings have reignited calls for Congress to take immediate action to reduce gun violence. Mr. Trump said the U.S. can’t make it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves, but he advocated for expanding the number of facilities to house the mentally ill.”
Just to give you a history of how the Mental health institutions were closed down we found an article from PBS about this…
“Deinstitutionalization is the name given to the policy of moving severely mentally ill people out of large state institutions and then closing part or all of those institutions; it has been a major contributing factor to the mental illness crisis. (The term also describes a similar process for mentally retarded people, but the focus of this book is exclusively on severe mental illnesses.)
Deinstitutionalization began in 1955 with the widespread introduction of chlorpromazine, commonly known as Thorazine, the first effective antipsychotic medication, and received a major impetus 10 years later with the enactment of federal Medicaid and Medicare. Deinstitutionalization has two parts: the moving of the severely mentally ill out of the state institutions, and the closing of part or all of those institutions. The former affects people who are already mentally ill. The latter affects those who become ill after the policy has gone into effect and for the indefinite future because hospital beds have been permanently eliminated.
The magnitude of deinstitutionalization of the severely mentally ill qualifies it as one of the largest social experiments in American history.
- In 1955, there were 558,239 severely mentally ill patients in the nation’s public psychiatric hospitals.
- In 1994, this number had been reduced by 486,620 patients, to 71,619, as seen in
It is important to note, however, that the census of 558,239 patients in public psychiatric hospitals in 1955 was in relation to the nation’s total population at the time, which was 164 million.
By 1994, the nation’s population had increased to 260 million.
- Thus deinstitutionalization has helped create the mental illness crisis by discharging people from public psychiatric hospitals without ensuring that they received the medication and rehabilitation services necessary for them to live successfully in the community.
- Deinstitutionalization further exacerbated the situation because, once the public psychiatric beds had been closed, they were not available for people who later became mentally ill, and this situation continues up to the present.
Consequently, approximately 2.2 million severely mentally ill people do not receive any psychiatric treatment.”
This is why P Trump addressing the mental health crisis today. This greatly affects all Americans if we do not take proper care of these individuals it can lead to worse situations.
CBS News reported that:
“An August University of New Hampshire Survey Center poll found that 42% of New Hampshire adults approve of Mr. Trump while 53% disapprove. The poll also showed that 49% approve of Mr. Trump’s handling of the economy and 44% disapprove.
New Hampshire’s four Electoral College votes are far below that of key swing states like Florida, Wisconsin, and Michigan, but its influence can prove powerful in close election years like 2000 when George W. Bush’s victory in the state gave him the edge needed to win the White House”
