The Difficulty in Moving a President: Two Indiana Visits in Four Days
FT. WAYNE, Ind.--Pres. Trump and Vice Pres. Pence will visit Southport High School for a rally Friday night. Monday's visit to Ft. Wayne is one of three stops for Trump on the day before the election. He's also expected to be in Cleveland, Ohio and Cape Girardeau, Missouri, the same day.
"The president traveling, as the president versus the campaign, is like night and day," said Brad Parscale, the Trump 2020 campaign manager, a guest on Fox News. "It's like moving an armada, versus moving a rowboat around."
.@parscale on @POTUS rallies: “I have to give the secret service high marks for being able to get this done. It’s difficult to move a president. I think former presidents will tell you, it’s not easy to make that many stops – and this president is doing it.” #TheStory pic.twitter.com/El1CTpZA0D

Trump's schedule is full of tour stops, where he's campaigning not only for himself, but for Republican candidates like Rep. Jim Banks and U.S. Senate candidate Mike Braun.
"What we've done, with the Secret Service now- I've got to give the Secret Service high marks for being able to get this done. It's difficult to move a president. And, I think former presidents will tell you, it's not easy to make that many stops and this president's doing it."
The President's website now lists Fort Wayne as the host of a rally on Monday, Nov. 5, at 6:30pm. Doors open at the Memorial Coliseum at 3:30 p.m., and you can sign up for free tickets now at his official website.
The Southport stop, which also features Pence, is also a free, but ticketed event.
