Supporters Gather in Phoenix Church Ahead of Trump's Speech

Supporters of the President of the United States gathered at a Phoenix-area church on June 23 to attend a ‘Students for Trump’ rally held against the backdrop of rising coronavirus infections in Arizona.

This footage was recorded inside the auditorium of Dream City Church, a mega-church where President Trump and his son Donald Trump Jr. were both expected to speak.

Earlier on June 23, Trump flew to Yuma, Arizona, for a photo op along the border with Mexico. Trump, along with the state’s Republican Governor Doug Ducey, Senator Martha McSally and Rep. Debbie Lesko, all signed a portion of border wall.

On the same day of Trump’s visit to Arizona, state officials announced almost 3,600 new coronavirus cases. At least 1,384 patients have died from complications of the virus, according to state records. Arizona’s outbreak has led local authorities to institute mask requirements to help staunch its spread. Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego has instituted such an order requiring masks be worn in public, though she said that it would not be enforced during Trump’s rally.
