Trump, who has a long history of attacking opponents, had a different take on the crowd. “It was a very loud crowd,” he said. “It’s always a little bit different when you’re up against a great opponent.”
He noted the game could have been a different story. “It could’ve been a tremendous crowd if we played the Yankees,” he said. “It could’ve been a great crowd. I mean, the crowd is phenomenal.
I mean, we have this great crowd, they’re really into the game, and in a way, you know, a little bit like walking into a Trump rally, you know?” The crowd was so loud that Trump didn’t even have to take the elevator. He said the crowd was “really, really” into him. He said when he entered the arena, he was “so happy” to be there.
Trump also noted that his son, Donald Jr., who walked the red carpet afterward, thanked him for the “great” event. Trump had one more stop in New York before heading to Florida for the Sunday night game: a rally at the Trump International Hotel. That rally was scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. The venue was scheduled to be packed, according to the New York Times.
