The Trump campaign announced Sunday that President Trump will hold a campaign rally in Portsmouth, New Hampshire next weekend.
The rally is set to be held outdoors at an airport hangar, similar to this rally by then-candidate Trump in Lakeland, Florida in 2016.

Trump held an indoor rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma on June 20 where attendance for the 19,000 seat venue was reportedly sabotaged by the anti-Trump arena management over concerns about the COVID-19 Chinese coronavirus, resulting in thousands of empty seats in the arena’s upper bowl. Protesters also blocked entrances to the security zone set up around the arena preventing rally attendees from getting through. While this will be his first campaign rally since Tulsa, Trump has since spoken to large crowds at a TPUSA event in Arizona on June 23 and at Mount Rushmore and the White House for Fourth of July celebrations this long holiday weekend.
As with the Tulsa rally, those registering for the free admission to the Portsmouth rally must agree to not hold the Trump campaign liable for exposure to the coronavirus:
“By registering for this event, you understand and expressly acknowledge that an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. In attending the event, you and any guests voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19, and waive, release, and discharge Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.; Portsmouth International Airport at Pease; or any of their affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, or volunteers from any and all liability under any theory, whether in negligence or otherwise, for any illness or injury.”
