The Trump campaign is taking advantage of the warm weather in parts of the county this Memorial Day weekend. Beachgoers who happen to glance up at the sky may see the campaign's "Keep America Great!" banners flying overhead. The campaign has been seeking creative ways to reach untapped voters amid the shutdowns during the Wuhan coronavirus.
Beginning Saturday, CBS News reports the aerial banners will fly over eight different parts of the United States on Memorial Day weekend: Pensacola, Florida; Daytona Beach, Florida; Hilton Head, South Carolina; Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Virginia Beach, Virginia; southern New Jersey; northern New Jersey and Galveston, Texas. The flyovers are planned to continue during peak, midday times throughout the weekend.
Lots of flying banner ads at the shore this weekend: in addition to Trump 2020, we’ve seen social distancing PSAs + “Resist Murphy” & “Gov Wolf is the Nerd King” (referring to NJ & PA’s Governors, respectively) pic.twitter.com/uxM0uF4GD2— Maura Barrett (@MauraBarrettNBC) May 23, 2020
The Trump team also used aerial banners during the primary season, flying banners above cities hosting Democratic presidential debates, and other high-profile events like the Daytona 500 NASCAR Race and the Super Bowl.
And then there's this beauty, as the president might describe it, that flew above a Bernie rally in May 2016, the last time the Democratic Party helped steer the nomination away from Bernie Sanders.
