Watch Donald Trump’s Pittsburgh Rally Live Online: Streaming Video, Full Replay Of Saturday’s Rally
Viewers can watch Donald Trump’s Pittsburgh rally live online and see if a boisterous crowd can help erase what has been a difficult week for the presumptive GOP nominee.
Trump had a great month of May, in which he ended the primary fight and started to bring previous critics within the Republican Party into his camp. With the party coming around him, Trump enjoyed a post-nomination bump that erased Hillary Clinton’s lead and put him on top in polls for the first time.
But, that lead has since been erased as Trump found his way back into a number of controversies, threatening to shatter the fragile unity he was starting to craft within the party.
Trump has a chance to start changing that with a weekend filled with rallies. After speaking in Florida on Saturday morning, Trump will be traveling to Pittsburgh for an event scheduled in the afternoon.

While a number of advisers are imploring Donald Trump to ditch his combative tone and adopt a more presidential manner, viewers who watch Trump’s Pittsburgh rally live online are unlikely to see that. After Trump took waves of criticism from his own party for remarks about a federal judge’s “Mexican heritage,” NBC News noted that Trump doubled down on the issue at a rally on Friday in Richmond, Virginia.
Trump has questioned the impartiality of Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is overseeing a fraud lawsuit against Trump University, suggesting that Curiel could not conduct a fair trial because of the judge’s Mexican background. Curiel is an American born in Indiana to Mexican-American parents.
The remarks led to scorn from within the Republican Party, including House Speaker Paul Ryan who called the line of attack racist.
Despite the controversy, Donald Trump refused to back off the issue, telling the crowad of 2,000 in Richmond that he is the “least racist person you’ve ever seen.”
But, Trump also resumed another controversial line of attack, this time against Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren. Trump and Warren have frequently sparred on Twitter, with Trump calling her “Pocahontas” in reference to Warren’s previous claim — which she since retracted — that she has Native American heritage.
Trump brought this up again during Friday’s rally, saying he would like to see Warren as Clinton’s vice president.
“I hope she is chosen by Hillary,” he said. “Aw, I would love it.”
Viewers who watch Donald Trump’s Pittsburgh rally live online will see a candidate in desperate need of support from his own party. There is a growing sentiment that some members of the “Never Trump” faction could be preparing to support an independent candidate, with former Republican nominee Mitt Romney leading the way.
Romney has been one of the most vocal critics of Trump, and this week nnon Trump’s bigoted statements.
“I don’t want to see trickle-down racism,” Romney said (via CNN). “I don’t want to see a president of the United States saying things which change the character of the generations of Americans that are following. Presidents have an impact on the nature of our nation, and trickle-down racism, trickle-down bigotry, trickle-down misogyny, all these things are extraordinarily dangerous to the heart and character of America.”
Romney has also expressed an openness to support Gary Johnson, who will be running on the Libertarian ticket against Trump this year.
