DENVER — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump spent Friday night speaking to thousands in Denver after holding a town hall meeting in Colorado Springs during the afternoon.
Trump spoke at the Wings over the Rockies Air & Space Museum in Lowry.
Colorado Springs stop
Trump spoke at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs at the Gallogly Event Center.
He was scheduled to start at 2 p.m. but didn’t speak until almost 3 p.m.
When Trump took the stage, he said the fire marshal wouldn’t let everyone in and questioned whether the fire marshal was “a Hillary person.”
Trump said, in part:
“We have thousands of people in a room next door, we have plenty of space here, we have thousands of people outside trying to get in and we have a fire marshal that said, no we can’t allow more people. And it really is so unfair to the people, I’m so sorry and I have to apologize, but it’s not my fault. I just came here. But we have thousands of beautiful, wonderful, great people, outside, and we have in the room next door over a thousand people they won’t let them in. And the reason they won’t let them in is because they don’t know what the hell they’re doing, that’s why, okay. Too bad. That’s why our country has probably- hey maybe they’re a Hillary person, could that be possible? Probably, I don’t think there are too many of them. I don’t think there are too many of them, anyway they set up a screen in the other room, they set up something outside, but what a disgraceful situation.”
Trump is scheduled to speak at the Wings over the Rockies Air & Space Museum at Lowry at 7 p.m. Doors open at 4 p.m. Tickets are required.
The museum said it only found out about Trump’s visit late Wednesday so officials had to scramble to get the giant hangar ready for the rally.
It also meant that a couple of high school groups planning to come to the museum on Friday had to cancel their trips.
