Huge crowds of excited fans lined up in Pickens County, South Carolina, before dawn, ready to be in the same room as the beloved former President Trump at his big Independence Day gathering. This event will happen in Trump country, which is the most pro-Trump part of the state. It's not a big surprise that Trump won the most votes in Pickens County in both presidential races.

This meeting will be held at the foot of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, which is different from the former president's usual field events. Pickens County is right on the line with North Carolina and is only an hour's drive from Northeast Georgia, so people from many nearby states have come to support it.
5:30am and there’s already a huge line of Trump supporters where thousands are expected for President Trump’s Independence Day rally.
No other candidate from any party has this kind of energy.

Even though it will be over 100 degrees, county officials expect a huge number of people to show up, probably in the tens of thousands. Police Chief Randal Beach thinks it's very possible that there will be 30,000 people there. It's amazing that Trump's charismatic nature can bring in so many people, even when it's hot outside.
Even though it was still dark, hundreds of rally-goers were already waiting in line hours before the doors opened at 9 a.m. The long lines were a sign of how much Trump is still liked and how passionate his fans are.
A number of well-known South Carolina Republicans, such as Governor Henry McMaster, Senator Lindsey Graham, and U.S. Representatives William Timmons and Russell Fry, will be at the event. They will talk to the cheering crowd and definitely try to get people to back conservative values and policies. This will make South Carolina's political scene more exciting.
In a sweet move, President Trump has asked the Rushingbrook Children's Choir, which was badly stopped from singing the national anthem at the U.S. Capitol because of silly fears of offending people, to sing at the gathering. It's really sad to see such obvious disrespect for country. Trump said he was sorry for how they were treated and promised to give them a chance to show off their skills in front of tens of thousands of loving Americans.
At 1 p.m. Eastern Time, President Trump will take the stage and entertain the crowd with his charisma and unwavering commitment to conservative values. This is the moment that everyone has been waiting for. In times like these, when American ideals are being attacked, it is important for everyone to work together to respect our country's past, heritage, and pursuit of freedom. President Trump's gathering is a shining example of hope, unity, and strong conservatism. It reminds us how important it is to keep our great country safe for future generations.
