WATCH: Trump Says His Event Drew More People Than MLK’s ‘I Have a Dream’ Speech’

Donald Trump has long been obsessed with crowd size. He memorably forced his press secretary Sean Spicer to lie about the size of his inauguration crowd despite clear evidence to the contrary.

During a weekend speech in Nashville, Trump again brought up event attendance. According to the former President more people showed up to his July 4th, 2020 speech than attended Martin Luther King Jr.’s, ‘I Have a Dream’ speech.

Trump began, “They were there, and nobody ever mentions that, they never show it. I have never seen it on television where they have a helicopter shot of Washington with numbers of, I won’t say it, because if I say it okay, I’ll get wiped out. You know, it’s very interesting. On July 4, I gave a speech two years ago at the Mall and it was the same Mall.”

The rant continued:

“Dr. King gave a speech and it was great. The I had a dream speech. It was great. How good was that? But they showed the picture and it was massive, tremendous numbers of people. They said it was a million people, one million people. And then I gave my speech and they showed the same thing. It’s hard to believe, many, many decades later, but it’s identical architecture, identical pools.”

“So his, they said, one million people,” Trump said. “Now, my pictures were exactly the same. But the people were slightly closer together. They were more compact, but exactly the same. But there were more people. They were tighter together if you look at it.”
