UTICA – President Donald Trump hosted a fundraiser event for Congresswoman Claudia Tenney in Utica on Monday.
The private event was held at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Utica on Lafayette Street, and tickets cost $1,000, $5,000 or $15,000.
Trump flew into Griffiss International Airport in Rome at 4:05 p.m. and then made his way to Utica, where hundreds of supporters and protesters were waiting with signs and chants.
The event was originally closed to the media, but a network pool camera provided live television coverage of Trump’s speech.
Some of the topics Trump spoke about included the economy, jobs, taxes, energy, and political candidates he was supporting, such as Congresswoman Tenney and Chele Farley, who is running for U.S. Senate against Kirsten Gillibrand.
