***Live Updates*** Trump Holds North Carolina Rally

President Donald Trump will hold a Wednesday evening rally in North Carolina a day after the House passed a resolution condemning him for his “racist comments” about Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Trump, in Greenville, will hold what will likely be another raucous rally in a must-win 2020 state hours after the House tabled Rep. Al Green’s impeachment resolution.

Stay tuned to Breitbart News for live updates. All times eastern.

6:45 PM: Trump claims victory! Dems channeling Lee Corso.

Full quote from President Trump to reporters in North Carolina: “We have just received an overwhelming vote against impeachment, and that’s the end of it. Let the Democrats now go back to work.”

Air Force One landed moments ago. President Trump spoke to our press pool saying the impeachment vote was defeated overwhelmingly and he hopes the democrats get back to work.

6:35 PM: Trump would rather have Democrats be identified with The Squad instead of Pelosi. That’s risky as Trump seeks reelection four years after he benefited from a depressed left-wing base. The Squad is unlikely to energize the right that much more than Pelosi. But The Squad will surely energize the left more than Pelosi ever will.

Big Rally tonight in Greenville, North Carolina. Lots of great things to tell you about, including the fact that our Economy is the best it has ever been. Best Employment & Stock Market Numbers EVER. I’ll talk also about people who love, and hate, our Country (mostly love)! 7:PM

I have arrived at the Trump rally in #Greenville, NC and the first thing I see is a MAGA teen band playing a song called “CNN sucks”

Another packed house for @realDonaldTrump, this time in Greenville, NC for a #KeepAmericaGreat rally. Crowd is fired up for POTUS!

NC was key for Trump in 2016 and will be important again in 2020. Economy is roaring in NC and he will win the state again!

Several vendors in Greenville, NC selling Trump gear. I saw a man selling Trump umbrella shade hats. For 2020 the red hats read, “KEEP AMERICA GREAT.”

Great to meet Ann today in Greenville, NC before the Trump rally!

She tells me that President @realDonaldTrump is making a difference for black Americans!

She supports the President because he’s “draining the swamp” & “making the economy roar again”‼️

Today I saw similar hype videos playing on a big screen outside the coliseum in Greenville. Supporters cheered at the included flashback coverage of North Carolina “going red” for Trump in 2016.

East Carolina University Police expect about 8,000 outside arena ahead of Trump rally. Many people on site are sporting interesting costumes and accessories— one man carrying around a Trump doll says it’s just one of his collection of five.
