Maybe the millions of people who voted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN should have their own rally. It would be the biggest of them all!

Back in late February, Donald Trump tweeted that if his supporters held a rally, it would be the biggest of them all. What prompted this tweet, back then, is not clear. But what is clear is that Bernie Sanders reads Donald’s tweets and can be quite sharp in his responses.

Why is Donald still tweeting about rally attendance? Perhaps he is still reveling in the days of his campaign where he packed auditoriums. Now, is a different story. With historically low approval ratings, it’s safe to say Trump’s crowds look a bit different. Indeed, the rallies that took place on March 4th not only highlight a substantial difference from his campaign rallies, but more notably, a difference between the crowds currently in support of Trump and the hundreds of thousands of people who rallied against Trump in the days, weeks, and months following the election.
Here is a glimpse of some of those rallies Trump is so proud of, some of them juxtaposed to the rallies held against him:

One thing you can say for Donald Trump, nothing seems to deter him from boasting about these rallies, even as they dwindle in size and number.
Thank you for the great rallies all across the country. Tremendous support. Make America Great Again!
