As the 2020 election comes to a close, Trump held a rally at the Richard B. Russell Regional Airport in Rome, Georgia on Sunday night. Loads of Trump fans attended the event as the president ginned up support while the state remains in play.
Newsweek reports that thousands of people were bussed to the event, but when it was over, there weren’t nearly enough shuttle buses to accommodate everyone. NBC News’ Julie Tsirkin took multiple videos from the aftermath of the rally, documenting scores of people who had to await transportation for hours in windy 46-degree weather.
“Some of the folks left stranded were older and disabled,” Tsirkin reported. “Multiple people tried to hitch rides from strangers amid the pandemic.”
