Supporters, vendors turn out for Trump rally at Manchester, NH airport

LONDONDERRY, N.H. — Supporters of President Donald Trump were rolling into Londonderry, New Hampshire all day Friday ahead of a campaign rally.

“This is my 32nd Trump rally I’ve attended since 2015,” Edward X. Young told Boston 25 News.

Campaign signs for local candidates lined the roads as cars paraded in and Trump fans slowly showed up bedecked in Trump masks and paraphernalia.

Two vendors were stocking their tables all morning saying the demand for Trump gear has been going up during convention week.

“They buy it all. They buy the flags, they buy the hats, the shirts,” Jimmy Ellis of New England For Trump Merchandise said.

Elsie Quattruci came all the way from New York, because, she says, she supports “only one man: Donald Trump.”

This is President Trump’s first campaign stop since accepting the Republican nomination in a speech for the Republican National Convention Thursday night on the South Lawn at the White House in Washington, D.C.

Natasha Athens was seen shopping for a new Trump hat saying, “I want the girlie, girlie ones.” She watched last night’s speech and felt energized telling us, “he was trying to advance everybody that wants to have a good life and have their own American Dream that that they create on their own terms.”

The rally Friday night is inside a hangar at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport. Masks are being required.
