WHEELING, W.Va. — They danced and sang, chanted and waved signs — and they expressed overwhelming support for President Donald J. Trump.
The thousands of people who visited WesBanco Arena in downtown Wheeling on Saturday evening cheered as the President spoke, reacting especially strongly when he mentioned coal or steel. They also booed loudly when Trump referred to high-ranking Democrats such as former President Barack Obama or current Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
Tom Michaud, of Wheeling, said he wanted to see the President speak because he believes we are experiencing a pivotal time in American history.
