The Donald Trump Town Hall live stream online and televised political event takes place Wednesday night in direct opposition to an event for other Republican candidates. It will once again give Trump the spotlight on his own, as he attempts to break away from the rest of the pack as the frontrunner of the candidates. It’s expected that Mr. Trump will speak on such topics as his conservatism, Ted Cruz’s citizenship and important political figure Nikki Haley, as this event arrives just days ahead of the crucial South Carolina primary. The Trump Town Hall 2016 live streaming and televised coverage arrives through MSNBC on Wednesday.
On Feb. 16, The Hill reported that the Wednesday night event featuring only Republican candidate Donald Trump will be moderated by anchors Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski of “Morning Joe” on MSNBC. This event will take place at the exact time as a CNN Republican Town Hall hosted by Anderson Cooper with Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Ben Carson. Ahead of this event, there’s already the suggestion by some media outlets such as CNN that the “Morning Joe” hosts have been giving preferential treatment to Trump and that they celebrated Trump’s New Hampshire primary success with him in his hotel room.
A statement issued by MSNBC indicated, “It should be noted that Morning Joe is off to a great start in this election year,” the statement added. “In January, the show had 28% more viewers than CNN’s morning show last month. And thus far in February, more people are watching Morning Joe than CNN.” Tonight, it’s expected that in particular Trump will look to defend the notion of his conservative ideals, which have often been under attack by a variety of candidates on both sides. Also, it would not be surprising if Trump once again attacks Ted Cruz on his citizenship issue and if the name Nikki Haley comes up. She is an important South Carolina political figure and State of the Union responder who could be essential to gaining popularity in the state ahead of this weekend’s primary.
It doesn’t seem like there’s much to be gained for Trump tonight, as a recent Bloomberg poll before South Carolina shows that the billionaire businessman has a solid lead. His lead right now among those expected to vote in Saturday’s Republican primary is said to be as much as 19 points over the next closest candidate, Ted Cruz. Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush are locked in a close battle for third place. Not only does Trump have a substantial lead over these opponents, but he’s dominating in virtually all demographic groups polled ahead of the primary. It’s always possible the outspoken businessman could say a thing or two tonight that hurt him rather than help him, but his supporters seem ready to give him yet another boost.
Wednesday’s Trump Town Hall 2016 meeting gets started at 8 p.m. Eastern Time. Live televised coverage will be provided through MSNBC in the United States. To watch the Trump Town Hall live streaming online, cable and satellite viewers can log into the MSNBC website or mobile apps were available. Donald Trump will follow up tonight’s appearance with an appearance on CNN Thursday night as part of their ongoing town hall as well. There may be live audio commentary and political analysis available on Sirius XM Satellite Radio channel 118 for MSNBC, or channels 124 to 127 for various political talk radio.
