Villagers for Trump planning watch party as president announces re-election bid in Orlando

Members of Villagers for Trump will gather Tuesday night in Florida’s Friendliest Hometown to cheer for the president.

The group, which has more than 1,000 members and has become the choice of many Republicans over the past year, is holding a watch party for President Trump’s Orlando rally, where he is officially announcing his re-election campaign.

President Trump tweeted out Monday morning that his campaign has received requests from more than 100,000 people hoping to attend his Tuesday night rally in Orlando.

A large group of Villagers for Trump members will be taking buses to the Amway Center to see the president in person, where some supporters started lining up for the event 40 hours early. Trump tweeted on Monday morning that his campaign has received requests from more than 100,000 people to attend the rally. The Amway center holds just 20,000 people, so the scene in Orlando on Monday was reminiscent of concert-goers lining up days in advance to see a favorite act.

Meanwhile, Villagers for Trump members staying behind are inviting supporters of the president to join them for the rally at Gator’s Dockside in Brownwood, 3698 Meggison Rd., to celebrate the president’s accomplishments and show their support for his 2020 election campaign.

Close to 40 members of Villagers for Trump attended a flag-waving event this past Friday afternoon at the corner of Morse Boulevard and County Road 466. The group will hold a watch party for President Trump’s Orlando rally on Tuesday night at Gator’s Dockside in Brownwood, from 7-10 p.m.

The event will last from 7-10 p.m. Those attending are encouraged to look for a large cut-out of the president and First Lady Melania Trump at an area reserved for those attending the watch party. Attendees will be able to order off the regular menu and there is no minimum required. And everyone is encouraged to wear their Trump gear to show support.

Tuesday night’s watch party will mark the second event in less than a week that Villagers for Trump has held to drum up support for the president and his re-election announcement. This past Friday afternoon, a large contingent of members gathered at the corner of Morse Boulevard and County Road 466 to celebrate Flag Day and the president’s 73rd birthday. They waved American flags and displayed a variety of signs as the majority of passing motorists honked their horns and showed support.
