Donald Trump will begin a “Victory Tour” or “Thank You Tour” on Thursday in Cincinnati, replicating the arena events that powered his surprise campaign, three of his transition officials said.
On Thursday evening, Trump will kick off a “thank you” tour in Ohio, with a massive rally at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati.
Trump has said he wants to get back to the trail and revisit the states he won, on a victory tour where he can re-energize the base of white, working class voters who put him in the White House. It’s also where Trump still feels most comfortable.
George Gigicos, director of the campaign’s advance team, told reporters on November 17 that Trump will travel “obviously to the states that we won and the swing states we flipped over,” which would presumably include Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. Gigicos called the event a “thank-you tour,” and he attempted to correct any reporters who more accurately described the ostentatious set of rallies as a “victory tour.”
What in the world is the point of this? Who is paying for this?
