WATCH: New Hampshire Voters Wait For Hours in 6 Inches of Snow To See Trump and Vivek


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.

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.

Check it out:

The Trump/Vivek event is taking place at Atkinson Country Club. Once supporters got inside, the place was packed!

Check out these clips:

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.”

Reuters has more details on Trump’s Tuesday rally in New Hampshire following his blowout win at the Iowa caucus:

Republican candidates trying to stop Donald Trump from being the party’s White House nominee turned on Tuesday to New Hampshire, the next nominating contest, having lost to the former president by historic margins in Iowa.
After trouncing his rivals in Iowa despite facing multiple criminal and civil cases, Trump, 77, appeared in a New York court on Tuesday to defend himself against charges he defamed writer E. Jean Carroll after she accused him of raping her decades ago.
More than half of Iowa voters stuck with Trump, propelling him toward a potentially close and acrimonious rematch against Democratic President Joe Biden, 81, in the campaign for November’s presidential election.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, 45, finished well behind Trump in second place in Iowa, pushing former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, 51, into third.
Trump has refused to debate his Republican rivals. Haley said on Tuesday she would skip any future party debates unless Trump attends, prompting ABC News to cancel a New Hampshire debate that was set to feature her and DeSantis.
The debate, which had been scheduled for Thursday, was one of two such events scheduled ahead of the New England state’s Jan. 23 contest.
“Our intent was to host a debate coming out of the Iowa caucuses, but we always knew that would be contingent on the candidates,” an ABC News spokesperson said.
DeSantis had vowed to take the debate stage alone in the New England state if necessary. CNN did not respond to a request for comment about its Sunday night debate.
New Hampshire is well known for its relatively moderate, libertarian-minded brand of Republicanism. Moreover, its primary contest is “semi-open,” meaning voters that are not registered with any party can participate, which can reward candidates perceived to be centrists.
Trying to take advantage, Haley has campaigned heavily in New Hampshire while DeSantis bet heavily on Iowa.
Haley was to hold a rally in New Hampshire on Tuesday with the state governor, Chris Sununu, who has endorsed her. DeSantis is set to hold a town hall event after first stopping in Haley’s home state, and Trump will deliver remarks at a country club.
