Organizers of a Kentucky rally in support of former President Donald Trump featuring several prominent allies and conspiracy theorists expected some 10,000 people to show up this weekend.

Instead, less than 300 were in attendance when local journalists attempted to cover the proceedings.

The "We the People Reunion" was held at the Muhlenberg County Agriculture & Convention Center Fairgrounds in Powderly, Kentucky, on Friday and Saturday.

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, retired General Michael Flynn, attorney Lin Wood and others were among the featured speakers, according to the event and ticket page online.

The news channel reported that promoters had expected a crowd of about 10,000 people but less than 300 were in attendance from what their journalists saw.

During a Friday interview with The Gateway Pundit, Trump again claimed Biden had "cheated" to win in the 2020 election.

Trump and his allies have not provided evidence to substantiate their extraordinary claims of widespread voter fraud. »
