Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was campaigning in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, area Sunday night, where he was met by literally thousands of supporters who had been waiting for hours to see him.
As many as 10,000 Pennsylvanians were welcomed into the hangar at Atlantic Aviation in Moon Township on Sunday night, and thousands of others were stopped at the gates, according to KDKA.
Backers reportedly lined up early to see the nominee. The doors opened at 5 p.m. and the rally was set to begin at 8 p.m.
Trump was late, and arrived around 10 p.m.
The packed crowd waited in the hanger to hear Trump speak.

Below is another view of the crowd.
Trump supporter Ken Close said he had to wait on the Penn-Lincoln Parkway for an hour and a half, only to wait again in line to get in the hangar.
Another supporter, identified as Tyler Tubbs, told the station any view of the candidate would be fine.
“If I see him from the curb, that’s good enough for me,” he said.
Trump said if he won the election he would “drain the swamp” of Washington insider politics, and take the country back from special interests.
Trump slammed Democrat rival Hillary Clinton, and told the crowd she “is guilty, she knows it, the FBI knows it, the people know it. Now it’s up to the American people to deliver justice.”

And right now, that’s not looking like it’s too much of a far-fetched idea.
