Report: Donald Trump and Bill O'Reilly's Tour Starts with Florida's Empty Seats

"Massive crowd gathered at FLA Live!" On Saturday, Trump/O'Reilly History will begin ...," O'Reilly wrote on Twitter that the former Fox host had just arrived.

The former president stated that he would see him in Sunrise, FL in a few minutes and then tomorrow in Orlando. "Big crowds!"

According to the Sun-Sentinel, the FLA Live Arena was "cavernous", with many empty seats. According to the Sun-Sentinel, tickets for the top level were closed and people who purchased them were moved to the lower bowl.

Social media photos showed the arena's top tier empty. However, it wasn't clear when the pictures were taken. There were also empty seats scattered throughout the arena.

Trump entertained the crowd by mocking President Joe Biden and repeating his baseless claim that the 2020 election was stolen.

According to the Sentinel, he stated that "our country in my opinion" is not being respected. "Every country around the world benefits from the United States."

Trump once complimented Barack Obama, his predecessor as president, calling him "smart" and "sharp."

Trump said that he liked Obama but that he was guilty of causing "tremendous discord" in the country.

Trump also stated to the crowd that he was best friends with "tyrants", such as Russia's Vladimir Putin or North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un, while in office.

He said, "The tyrants were the ones I got along the best with." "I got along well with Putin and President Xi of China, for whatever reason. It was great to get along with Kim Jong Un from North Korea... Is that not better than a nuclear war?

Trump also discussed the January 6th riot at U.S. Capitol, when a mob of his supporters stormed it in an attempt to stop Biden's electoral win being certified. Trump stated, "There was love in that air."

Trump and O’Reilly will be on a tour to Orlando's Amway Center, before heading to Texas. They will stop at the Toyota Center, Houston, and the American Airlines Center, Dallas.

Newsweek reported in the past that tickets for all four events were still readily available just days before the tour started.

But, those that did sell sold for at least $100 and VIP and premium tickets were several thousand.

Trump's spokesperson was reached for comment.
