Trump planning new round of rallies dubbed the ‘Thank America Tour’
WASHINGTON — President-elect Donald Trump will host a new round of rallies in the coming weeks to celebrate his 2016 election win, according to one of his top aides.
George Gigicos, the head of the Trump advance team, spoke to reporters in the lobby of Trump Tower in New York City Thursday, where he said their team is working on “the victory tour now.”
He asked Trump’s former campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, who was standing behind him, to ask when the tour would be happening.
She came forward to reporters and said, “‘Thank you tour.’ It’s not a ‘victory tour,'” to which Gigicos repeated, “Thank you tour.”
“Thank America tour,” Conway insisted.
Gigicos said the tour would be happening in “the next couple of weeks — after Thanksgiving” and would focus on “the swing states we flipped over.”
Trump flipped Florida, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan in the 2016 election.
