Just one day earlier, Senator Bernie Sanders held a campaign rally at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. It was the presidential candidate's second rally of his 2020 campaign and attracted thousands of voters.

Sanders' trip to Colorado came after his win last week in New Hampshire's presidential primary election, where he narrowly edged moderate rival Pete Buttigieg and scored the first clear victory in the Democratic Party’s chaotic 2020 nomination fight.

Sanders declared that his victory in New Hampshire “is the beginning of the end" for President Donald Trump. Sanders has energized young voters and liberals with his calls for a Medicare for all health care system and free college tuition.

The president announced in December that he had plans to visit Colorado “a lot” to campaign with Gardner, who’s up for re-election in 2020.

“We have a great senator in Colorado. We have to get him extended. I’ll be there a lot,” Trump said at a White House summit on childcare and family leave.

According to the event page on Trump’s website, the president's rally will begin at 5 p.m. Tickets to the event are now available online and people can register for them here.
