President Donald Trump’s base appears to be more energized than ever.
With the impeachment trial in the senate looming, supporters of the president are showing up in massive numbers, with the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena in Milwaukee, Wisconsin reaching it’s 12,700 capacity right before Trump appeared.

One individual on Twitter described the sight as a “sea of people.”

The rally comes as the top Democratic presidential candidates battle it out on the debate stage, hosted by CNN and The Des Moines Register. Tension between candidates have grown tremendously in recent weeks, with drama beginning to boil over between Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.
An individual on Twitter asked why Trump rallies that occur the same day of Democratic debates are intentional.
“It appears to be so common for President Trump to hold a campaign rally on the same days as the debates, like he’s doing now in Wisconsin. Why is this intentional?”

The answer? Well, the Democratic debates, which have been dwindling in the ratings due to Trump eating up the news coverage, could harm the candidates going into the Iowa caucus or DNC convention.
