Watch Donald Trump’s Richmond, Virginia, Rally Live Online: Start Time, Streaming Video For Friday’s Rally

Viewers can watch Donald Trump’s June 10 rally from Richmond live online and see if the Republican candidate can tap into a bit of supporter enthusiasm to turn around what has been a difficult week.

Trump found his way into controversy again this week after comments about the ethnicity of a judge overseeing his civil case backfired. With a dip in his polls that has now lasted three weeks, Trump is hoping that Friday’s rally in Richmond can generate some new enthusiasm and help him move beyond the difficult stretch.

The event is slated to started at 9 p.m., and those looking to watch Donald Trump’s Richmond rally live online can find streaming video below.

There is a chance that those watching Trump’s June 10 rally live online will see a subdued version of the real estate mogul. There are reports that Trump’s advisers are telling him to back off the incendiary language that has gotten him into trouble a number of times this campaign, including this week.

Trump criticized federal judge Gonzalo Curiel this week, saying the judge’s Mexican heritage makes him biased against Trump. Curiel is overseeing a fraud case regarding Trump University. The remarks were widely seen as racially charged, and even Trump’s supporters have spoken out publicly against him.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, who has been gradually moving from one of Trump’s opponents to a backer, called the remarks “beyond the pale” and said in an interview on Good Morning America that they were the “textbook definition of racism.”

Ryan added that he spoke to Trump privately to voice his displeasure.

“I have [spoken to Trump] and explained exactly what I thought about that comment. I said it publicly and I said it privately,” Ryan told host George Stephanopoulos. “This is something that needs to be condemned. That comment is beyond the pale. That’s not political correctness — suggesting someone can’t do their job because of their race or ethnicity, that’s not a politically incorrect thing to do. That’s just a wrong thing to say, and I hope he gets that.”

Trump has since backed away from the line of attack on Judge Curiel, issuing a statement this week saying he doesn’t believe the judge’s ethnicity plays a role in his decision-making regarding the Trump University lawsuit.

Amid the controversy, Donald Trump has seen his poll numbers plummet. After bringing a sudden and unexpected end to the Republican primary with a win in the Indiana primary, Trump spent much of the month of May building relationships within his party and bringing new voters on board. He rode a post-nomination bump to his first real lead over Hillary Clinton just before Memorial Day but has since watched it fizzle amid the bad press.

The Pollster average of all polls now puts Trump roughly six points behind Clinton and failing rapidly.

That could make his Richmond rally that much more important. Trump is desperate for some positive stories amid the controversy, and getting back to his bread-and-butter of speaking directly to voters may be the boost he needs to end the week.

Those who watch Donald Trump’s Richmond rally live online will be unlikely to hear from the Trump University case or Trump’s feeling on Judge Curiel. Instead, he is likely to stick to the issues that have made him popular, taking on Hillary Clinton and her past scandals and promising economic and job growth if he were to win in November.

But those watching the Trump rally online could also see some controversy. A number of Trump’s recent rallies have been disrupted by protesters, with some of the clashes turning violent.
