Thousands of President Donald Trump’s supporters have been lined up all night outside in Michigan’s frosty temperatures waiting for “Merry Christmas Rally” in Battle Creek, Michigan, on Wednesday, Dec. 18, some reportedly started camping out as early as Monday to secure prime sitting. 

“We got here about 5:30 in the morning. We’re cold. We’re very, very cold but it’s worth the wait,” one woman told Fox News.

“We’re here to support him, sir,” another woman said. “You know, we’re behind him 100 percent. We know that the House might obviously have favor because they have the numbers but it’s not going anywhere in the Senate.”

The rally is the same day that the Democrat-led House debated articles of impeachment against President Trump. House Democrats accuse the president of abusing of power and obstructing of Congress.

One attendee defended President Trump’s conduct in his dealings with Ukraine.

“He did what he’s supposed to do as president and that’s look out for us and make sure that when we send money to other countries it’s going to the people that it needs to go to,” she said.

More than 10,000 people are reportedly expected to attend the event, which is more than the arena’s capacity. 

“I’ve seen a lot of rock concerts at Kellogg Arena. This is going to be the best show I’ve ever seen,” one man told Fox17.

“Thank you Michigan, I am on way. See everybody soon!” President Trump tweeted as he’s heading to Michigan.
