While six Democratic presidential contenders descended on Las Vegas for a debate which proved to be the most bloody yet — in part because of the first-time appearance of the ascendant Mike Bloomberg on the debate stage — President Trump was busy doing what he does best: charge up his supporters at yet another jam-packed rally, this time in Phoenix, Arizona. In multiple tweets he posted from the rally, Trump showed just how enthused his supporters are to come to one of his events, showing the “HUGE” line outside the rally.

In the first of a bunch of tweets on the Phoenix rally, Trump made sure to note on the way that it was going to be another “big rally” with a “big crowd.” Trump then retweeted a post by White House Director of Social Media Dan Scavino with video from FOX10 Phoenix showing a massive crowd waiting to enter the arena. The president followed up that retweet with another from the Trump campaign showing the remarkably long line of supporters outside the event.

“Here is the line for the Trump Rally in Phoenix tonight! HUGE!” the campaign wrote. To make sure his 73 million followers didn’t miss the crowd-touting footage, Trump reposted it later, responding simply, “Wow!”

Trump followed that up with photos and video from the rally expressing gratitude to those who waited in the long lines to come see him and blasting out his summary of the stark differences between the platforms of the Democratic and Republican parties.

“A beautiful evening in Phoenix, Arizona with Great American Patriots. THANK YOU!” he wrote in a post including video of him standing on stage in the packed-out arena.

“The Democrat party is the party of high taxes, high crime, open borders, late-term abortion, socialism, blatant corruption, and the total destruction of your Second Amendment. The Republican Party is the party of the American Worker, the American Family, and the American Dream!” the president wrote in a follow-up tweet before promoting more footage from the “HUGE” rally in Phoenix.

He concluded the Phoenix tweets by thanking his supporters in Arizona again and promising that there is more “WINNING” to come. “Thank you Arizona!” he wrote. “With your help, your devotion, and your drive, we are going to keep on working, we are going to keep on fighting, and we are going to keep ON WINNING! America is thriving like never before, and the BEST IS YET TO COME!”



After demonstrating the degree of enthusiasm and unity of his base in Arizona, Trump turned his attention to the divisive Democratic debate in nearby Nevada — and declared a loser: new kid on the block, billionaire Bloomberg.

“Mini Mike Bloomberg’s debate performance tonight was perhaps the worst in the history of debates, and there have been some really bad ones,” Trump pronounced. “He was stumbling, bumbling and grossly incompetent. If this doesn’t knock him out of the race, nothing will. Not so easy to do what I did!”

As he usually does after rallies, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted out some “winning data” collected by the Trump campaign about the Phoenix rally.

“Wow, Arizona! Big Phoenix rally. 67,516 Tickets[;] 29,990 Voters Identified (87% from AZ)[;] 26% Didn’t Vote in 2016[;] 18% Democrats. Thank You Arizona. Winning Data!” wrote Parscale.
