Viewers can watch Donald Trump’s rally from Spokane, Washington, live online and see how the real estate mogul fares now that he’s officially the last man standing in the Republican primary.
Saturday’s rally will be one of Trump’s first major events since his resounding victory in Tuesday’s Indiana primary. Facing plenty of opposition from within his own party — including opponents John Kasich and Ted Cruz, who released a statement saying their campaigns would be coordinating in an effort to stop Trump from reaching the 1,237 delegate threshold that allows him to win the nomination outright — Trump cruised to a double-digit victory.
Cruz dropped out of the race on Tuesday night, and Kasich followed shortly after, leaving Trump as the last man standing and (barring something entirely unforeseen) the Republican Party’s candidate for November.

Though he is less than a week into his status as presumed nominee, Donald Trump has already collected plenty of opponents, both within his party and outside of it. President Barack Obama spoke out against the real estate mogul, saying that the presidency is “not a reality show.”
Many fellow Republicans are joining in now, as well, including Sen. Lindsey Graham, who said he would not be voting for Donald Trump.
House Speaker Paul Ryan said he is “not ready” to support Donald Trump” until he can unify the Republican Party and the conservative movement, and then run a campaign that allows all Americans to “have something that they’re proud to support and proud to be a part of.”
“And we’ve got a ways to go from here to there,” Ryan said (via CNN).
Those who watch Donald Trump’s rally from Spokane live online will see if he begins to temper his rhetoric and stances, as many have expected he might do after securing the nomination.
But, amid the opposition, Donald Trump has also been amassing support within the Republican Party, with a number of the party’s biggest names coming around this week and endorsing him. That includes Dick Cheney, who threw his support behind Trump on Friday.
Lindsey Graham responded to this as well.
“Dick Cheney’s a great man. We see the world a lot alike when it comes to foreign policy. I can understand when people want to support the nominee of the Republican Party. I would like to be able to do that, but I just can’t,” Graham said. “Maybe I’m the outlier here. Probably am. There’ll be Democrats who can’t support Hillary Clinton, and you know some of them will hold their nose and vote for her. Some of them will do it enthusiastically.”
Trump may still have some work to do before he can get the party to rally around him, CNN found.
“CNN reached out to 16 Republican elected officials, leaders and major fundraisers associated with former Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush and former Vice President Dick Cheney. Speaking on background, none of them said they were planning to go to this summer’s Republican convention. They didn’t say they would vote for Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton. But they said they were not yet supporting Trump.
“2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney declared he’d skip the convention, joining at least three prior Republican nominees — John McCain and both Presidents Bush — in declining to attend the event.”
