1. Well according to a CBS story on line 20,000

https://www.google.com/amp/s/minnesota.cbslocal.com/2019/10/10/trump-addresses-minneapolis-crowd-at-campaign-rally/amp/

20,000 inside, many of them paid. But no estimate on how many outside protesting his traitorous orange fat ass....

2. Target Center is 20k max.

That is standing room only included. Used to be placards stating occupancy for events posted by the Entrances from the Parking Garage.

3. And from photos it wasn't standing room only

So, someone is not telling the truth.

4. From the Pics last night,

and after going to Timber Puppy games near the end of another usual ugly season. Maybe 9k,remember the Attendance numbers being announced on the Radio as we sat in the Nose Bleed freebe seats until the Game started and then moving down to the Swell Seats after the first quarter.

5. Fact Check................

For 102 minutes Thursday, President Donald Trump railed against investigations into his presidency, attempts to derail his agenda and his political critics.


The president spoke in glowing terms about his stewardship of the economy — the strongest in history, he said. He proclaimed the country to be safer. And he cast himself as the 2020 candidate with “the only positive vision for America.”

Trump’s cascade from one topic to the next meant he often didn’t complete his thoughts. And he laid down fewer statistical markers that can be scrutinized than past speeches in Minnesota.

Here are some Trump remarks worthy of more examination, beginning with his opening comments to a roaring crowd:

What he said: “So we have 20,000-plus inside. We set a new record. And we have 25,000 people we still love outside. And close to 100,000 people wanted to come tonight.”

The facts: The Target Center can hold roughly 20,000 people, matching what a fire department official said was the capacity for Thursday’s rally. Images of the rally showed some empty seats in the upper portion of the arena, but many people stood on the floor of Target Center. That makes a precise count difficult. And he did not say specifically what record he set.

Even if the crowd did top 20,000, that’s happened before at Target Center. A 2017 Timberwolves-Warriors basketball game drew 20,412 and a 2005 U2 concert packed in 20,200.


The president’s assertion that 25,000 people were left on the outside is dubious given that an overflow space wasn’t full and reporters on the outside of the arena saw nothing nearing that number. It’s possible that 100,000 people signed up with the campaign to attend, but those RSVPs don’t always translate into attendance.
