Enthusiastic supporters chanted “USA!” outside Contact Aviation at the Oakland County International Airport.

According to, it was 32 degrees at 8:00 a.m. and felt below freezing, but that did not seem to dampen the spirits of the Trump supporters.

The early afternoon rally will be the first of three for Trump on Friday. He will make additional stops in Green Bay, Wisconsin and Rochester, Minnesota.
