The Pennsylvania governor was responding to a tweet from Lt. Gov. John Fetterman (D), who posted a picture of the crowd for a Trump rally Saturday.

“The President is popular in PA,” Fetterman posted. “I don’t care what polls say.”


The president has held several rallies in Pennsylvania over the past week, gathering huge crowds amid the coronavirus pandemic, including a trio last Monday in Allentown, Lititz and Martinsburg.

Trump won the state in 2016, which experts said got him to the White House along with victories in Wisconsin and Michigan.
