Thousands of people ready for President Trump in Great Falls

Posted: Updated:

GREAT FALLS - Folks have been waiting in line for President Donald Trump's visit to Great Falls since the gate opened at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday.

The President is set to begin speaking at a campaign rally at around 4 p.m. 

Thousands of people stood in line for hours to get into the Four Seasons Arena ahead of President Donald Trump's rally in Great Falls. The event is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m.

The doors opened a little before 1 p.m., but the line stretched outside of the ExpoPark and down the sidewalk along 3rd Street NW.

Security for the event has prevented any mad scrambles for the best seats in the house, but the arena is expected to be packed when President Trump arrives.

He is expected to talk about several issues, including his next Supreme Court Justice nomination to veterans affairs to foreign relations, and possibly today's announcement that Scott Pruitt, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, resigned today.

President Trump will also rally support for Matt Rosendale, the GOP candidate challenging U.S. Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) in the November election.
