Loyal Trump supporters waited hours in the rain in Windham, New Hampshire for a chance to watch Trump give a speech.
Videos on Twitter show thousands of New Hampshire residents getting soaked as they wait to enter Windham high school gym.
Trump supporters started to line up outside the gym as early as 8:30 AM and stood in the rain for over 6 hours.
Just take a look:

The 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump, resumed campaigning in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire on Tuesday, competing for next year’s Republican presidential nomination, and accused President Biden of ordering his Attorney General to bring federal charges against him, because, he said, Trump is leading Biden in polls over a hypothetical rematch in 2024.
Trump said his current campaign has “more enthusiasm now than 2016 or 2020, because you see how incompetent these people are.”
Trump’s mid-afternoon rally, attended by several hundred supporters in a hot Windham High School gym, 10 miles from Nashua, the state’s second most populous city, was his first in the state since appearing in Washington federal court last week to be arraigned on felony charges related to the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot.
Dozens of supporters were lined up at 8:30 a.m., waiting in the rain, six hours ahead of the 2:30 p.m. event. Many wore red Make America Great Again baseball hats with a 45-47 on the side.
Over the weekend, Trump campaigned in Alabama and in South Carolina, the first southern primary state, defiant over this third criminal indictment since leaving office, reiterating Tuesday that each indictment had strengthened support for his campaign.
