Trump to Hold HUGE Post-Debate Florida Mega-Rally for 10,000 on Tuesday
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has scheduled a huge rally in Melbourne, Florida on Tuesday–the day after his first debate with Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton–at an airport hanger where over 10,000 people are expected to attend.
The rally will be Trump’s first campaign visit to Melbourne, a city in Brevard County on Florida’s Space Coast that has seen rallies by Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama, GOP nominee John McCain and then-Democratic Party vice presidential nominee Joe Biden over the past three previous presidential campaign seasons.

The rally will be held in the evening at twilight in Hangar 6, an airplane repair and modification facility run by AeroMod International at Orlando Melbourne International Airport.
Florida Today reported on the planning for the rally.
Friday morning, the airport sent the following notice:
“Tenants are advised that a political rally for the “Donald Trump for President” campaign will be held Tuesday afternoon, September 27th at the AeroMod International Hangar. Gates will open at 3. The candidate is expected to arrive via his campaign aircraft at approximately 6 p.m.
It is expected that more than 10,000 people will attend.
“Regardless of politics, it is expected that many employees will want to be spectators at this event. We have arranged for airport tenants to have first access to the free tickets via the link below. Badged employees do not require a ticket. We encourage airport-based employees to stay parked in their designated parking and walk to the event. A special section will be set aside in the hangar for badged employees.
“We are working closely with law enforcement on parking and security logistics and will update you as plans are finalized.”
Trump held a rally Monday on Florida’s Gulf Coast at the 8,000 seat Germain Arena in Ft. Myers that ‘sold out’ so quickly scalpers were offering tickets for $200 a pair.
In contrast Clinton gave a speech in Orlando to several hundred supporters on Wednesday.
