Thousands of supporters flock to see Trump in Orlando, but it wasn't a sellout



Thousands of supporters — though fewer than predicted — cheered Donald Trump in Orlando on Sunday as the former president proclaimed his usual litany of attacks and hinted he would run again in 2024.

Trump, who has been publicly flirting with another campaign for the White House for months now, was in town as part of his four-city “History Tour” with ex-Fox News host Bill O’Reilly.

“I said loud and clear,” he told the crowd at the Amway Center, repeating his false claims of victory over Joe Biden in 2020. “We won the first time, and the second time we won by even more. And it looks like we might have to think about very strongly a third time.”

Guests began entering when the gates opened at noon. But just like at the kickoff event in South Florida on Saturday, turnout was light enough that ticketholders for upper bowl seats were told they could sit in the lower section instead. Trump’s representatives had predicted the shows would sell out.

Tickets started at $100, with VIP seats reportedly costing thousands more. But by Sunday morning, prices for some tickets had dropped to as low as $40.

Outside the arena, the scene was less bustling than a typical Trump rally, with only a few stands selling “Let’s go Brandon” and “Trump/DeSantis 2024″ merchandise. There was just a small police presence.

6. Also too, the arena probably wasn't letting in his unvaxxed fans.

7. I saw on Twitter that Stubhub was selling tickets that went for $300 for $3.

They couldn't give 'em away! Even in Florida!
