Trump Staffer: The President-Elect’s ‘Thank You Tour’ Will Begin This Week
After previous reports suggested that a victory lap was imminent, Donald Trump‘s staff have virtually confirmed that he will hold new rallies in celebration of his upcoming presidency.
Transition officials told Bloomberg that Trump plans to go on tour in several states, where he will hold events resemblant of his campaign rallies. While this was labeled a “victory tour” by previous reports, staffer George Gigicos described the planned events as a “thank you tour” to the states Trump won.
Transition officials said the first event would take place on Thursday at the US Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio. Trump officials said they were also considering an event in Des Moines, Iowa, and possibly more in the swing states that voted for him.
Bloomberg’s report was corroborated by NBC’s Frank Thorp and CNN’s Jim Acosta:
