Murphysboro, IL. (ECWd) –
The hanger was nearly full, with people standing outside and to the rear of the hangar doors, and another large group of people on the north side of the hangar. President Trump first took a few minutes to address those outside prior to stepping on stage inside the hangar. There were an estimated 13,000 people attending this event. Lines started forming at about 7 a.m. I attended after being notified by the White House Office of the Press Secretary that we were issued media credentials, and located myself on the second riser immediately behind CNN and couple local television news stations. It was a long day, and took close to 2 hours to exit the event location due to the traffic.
