Donald Trump team set to do ‘Thank America tour’
WASHINGTON — President-elect Donald Trump will host a new round of rallies in the coming weeks to celebrate his 2016 election win, according to one of his top aides.
George Gigicos, the head of the Trump advance team, spoke to reporters in the lobby of Trump Tower in New York City Thursday, where he said their team is working on “the victory tour now.”
He asked Trump’s former campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, who was behind him, to ask when the tour would be happening.
She came forward to reporters and said, “‘Thank you tour.’ It’s not a ‘victory tour,'” to which Gigicos repeated, “Thank you tour.”
“Thank America tour,” Conway said.
Gigicos said the tour would be happening in “the next couple of weeks — after Thanksgiving” and would focus on “the swing states we flipped over.”
One of Trump’s trademark moves during the 2016 election were his huge rallies that gathered thousands of his supporters in a venue. Toward the end of his campaign, Trump was flying to several states doing rallies in one day.
On the trail, Trump often credited his electoral success to campaigning and directly addressing his supporters.
