“Hundreds of supporters President Donald Trump began lining up outside the Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum ahead of the ‘Keep America Great’ rally, with some seeking refuge from the sun under umbrellas. Residents from across the state traveled to Phoenix to catch a glimpse of the president,” USA Today reported. “Wednesday’s rally marks Trump’s 10th visit to Arizona as a candidate or president. But he’ll likely receive a warmer welcome than in previous visits with a friendlier GOP landscape including Arizona Republicans Sen. Martha McSally, Rep. Paul Gosar, Rep. David Schweikert and Rep. Debbie Lesko.”
