Following his landslide victory in Iowa last night, Trump traveled to New Hampshire to hold a rally with Vivek Ramaswamy, who dropped out of the race to give his full support to Trump’s campaign.
This is Trump and Vivek’s first time sharing an event together – true history in the making.
And, New Hampshire voters waited for hours in a snowstorm to see it first-hand!
Earlier today, Fox News reported that folks started lining up at 5AM to wait in 6 inches of snow for Trump and Vivek’s arrival.
People in New Hampshire have been waiting in the snow for hours to see Trump speak.
There is nothing that will stop this.

Here’s a full transcript from the news clip:
Good afternoon. In just two hours, former President Donald Trump will hold his first rally here in New Hampshire in a month’s time. You can see behind me this is the line of folks who have been out here braving the snow since 05:00 this morning to see former President Trump after his landslide victory in Iowa last night. Now those folks who are braving this 29 degree weather and six inches of snow are also going to see Vivek Ramaswamy share a stage with Trump for the first time, marking their first event together. I should say, since Vivek Ramaswamy stepped down, dropped out of the race and endorsed former President Trump last night.
Social media users have been busy posting photos and clips of the massive turnout for tonight’s Trump/Vivek rally in NH, despite the freezing temperatures and snowstorm.

NBC Boston reported on what supporters at the rally had to say about Trump:
Fresh off a record-setting win in Iowa, Trump supporters lined up in the snow to hear him speak at the Atkinson Country Club.
Edward X Young drove 11 hours from Brick, New Jersey to Atkinson, New Hampshire overnight for his 66th Trump rally. He says nothing can change his mind, not even 91 felony counts and a civil case in New York.
“Look. We’re out here in this near blizzard. It has strengthened our resolve. My resolve. I wouldn’t do this for any other candidate,” Young said. “The people prove that he is the man who belongs in the White House, just like yesterday’s caucus proved in Iowa. I mean, historic – biggest margin ever – more than all the other candidates combined.”
Young isn’t the only Trump supporter who feels that way.
“I think the majority of them are fake,” said Jeffrey Wentz of Windham, New Hampshire. “They’re just making up these claims until he’s proven guilty he’s innocent we live in America that’s the bottom line. Prove him guilty. Let’s do it.”
