TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - City officials estimate about 9,000 showed up at the Tupelo Regional Airport Monday for President Trump's appearance.
It was the first appearance of a sitting president in the All America City since 1934 when President Franklin Roosevelt recognized how Tupelo benefited from receiving electricity from the Tennessee Valley Authority.
Trump appeared in Tupelo on behalf of interim U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith, who is in Tuesday's runoff with former Congressman Mike Espy.
Trump and Hyde-Smith left Tupelo for a similar campaign appearance in Biloxi later the same day.
