Chester, PA – Donald Trump will return to Delaware County at 7 p.m. Thursday where a crowd of 5,000 people are expected to see the GOP presidential candidate speak at the Sun Center Studios in Chester Township.
- Last week, Trump traveled to the Aston Community Center where he laid out a plan to give income tax deductions to working mothers.
- These deductions would cover day care and related costs for children from birth until the age of 13.
- However, Trump did little to prioritize the importance of speaking in Delaware County, the third-largest county in Pennsylvania.
- It’s long been ruled by Republicans but now has a Democratic voter-registration edge.
- It has gone for every Democratic presidential candidate since 1992.
“On policy issues, those people who want to improve the economy are coming around to Trump, they care about foreign policy and immigration, and a balanced Supreme Court,” said Delaware County Republican Chairman Andy Reilly. “A huge amount of people have been turned off by the elite and political class of Hillary Clinton.”
- Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton spoke in Philadelphia on Monday where she aimed to appeal to millennial voters.
- Clinton’s campaign acknowledged it has to work harder to appeal to younger voters.
- In Aston, Trump spoke to a few hundred people inside the community center where he failed to mention Clinton by name in the course of a half-hour-long speech to local and regional supporters.
- Reilly said more than 2,000 people have already signed up to attend the rally.
- Those interested in applying to enter the rally can browse through the Trump website and request free tickets to the event. That application can be found here: https://www.donaldjtrump.com/schedule/register/chester-pa
