Trump Thank You Tour Stops on the Coast

The Donald Trump Thank You Tour has been going around the state since Monday. Today, the campaign bus is on the Coast.
Campaign representatives were on hand in Gulfport this afternoon thanking volunteers and voters for all of their support.
The Trump campaign bus made its way to the Coast and representatives on hand this time were not asking for votes, but were celebrating a victory with those who voted for Trump and thanking volunteers. They dubbed it the “Thank Y’all” Tour in Mississippi. Chairman of the Trump Committee for Mississippi Mitch Tyner said, “Often times the campaign is over and it’s forgotten. We’ve seen that time and time again. We’ve worked a number of campaigns together so Dane Maxwell and I said ‘you know, no matter what happens, let’s go back and thank the real people that are responsible for getting the hard work done in the campaign.”
Tyner and State Campaign Director Dane Maxwell self-funded the tour. They decided back in 2015 that they would do this in the state no matter the outcome of the election. Plenty of residents excited about a Trump presidency stopped by the Dock in Gulfport today to show support. Gulfport resident Daphne Lecamu said, “I’m just really excited about the conservative cabinet he is appointing or wants to appoint. I think that is more exciting for me than just about anything.”
Back on January 2nd, 2016 Donald Trump came to Biloxi and spoke before a huge crowd at the Coast Coliseum. Trump would go on to win the state easily. “It’s that kind of enthusiasm that elected Donald Trump,” said Tyner.
Gulfport Resident Rhonda Latimer said, “I think there’s been a lack for our military and the importance that he shows to build our military and support that and to me that is one of the most important issues we have to face.”
The thank you tour started Monday in the northwest corner of the state and then zigzagged down to the Coast. With nine stops in total, the tour will be stopping in Gulfport and Pascagoula Thursday before heading to D.C. for the Presidential Inauguration.
