Spoiler: you're probably not getting paid either.
Double spoiler: if anyone gets coronavirus there you're probably getting sued

A person who answered the church's phone Friday told KTAR News that the venue has 3,000 seats.

Sooooooo half of what he had in his big comeback rally in Tulsa?

Seriously, given the nature of these events, I wonder, even if they do get paid for the booking fee they theoretically have agreement for, if it will even come close to paying for the cleanup and damage repair to the facilities.  Churchgoers normally don't abuse their own facilities, but outsiders coming into any facility are generally not as respectful.  There's a reason why sports stadiums are made out of concrete and hard-touch, durable materials, because they can be swept with coarse-bristle brooms and pressure-washed without incurring damage.  porous upholstery, wood, carpet, and sheetrock are all prone to damage when large groups of uncaring people come into contact with them.

The church says it agreed to rent its auditorium to Turning Point Action for a student event.

Bad enough. Don't let a single bit of Satan into the house of god.

This event is being held 5 or so miles from me. The mega church has also let High Schools hold their graduation events there over the years, so I've been inside for those. It's big, but not nearly as large as the one last night.

F*ck. It's gonna be 109 by the time he takes the stage at 3:40-4pm. As it is private property, protesting would have to be on Cave Creek Rd, which is fairly wide.

President Asshole, why are you coming here? Martha McSally is hated by most people here and doesn't stand a chance against The Astronaut. The state may dislike you more for coming. If you really want to come and be loved by your supporters, either go to Mesa or Prescott or Cottonwood. Maybe Showlow.

Let him come.  His coming will only serve to reduce his popularity among most of the electorate.  No one is going to see him come and say, "I was on the fence about him but now I support him!".  Except maybe Weatherkiss.

It's been amazing. He went from the biggest place for his rally (Convention Center) to a smaller location (War Memorial) to a yet smaller location (Mega Church). Given another year, he might be doing stops at local donut shops.

I'd rather some prop for making an appearance jam up and require a stagehand with a sledge hammer and other large tools have to come out to force it open.  Especially if it's on live TV and is literally opened right as the allotted time for the show ends.

What day is the event, I couldn't tell from the article.

I'm trying to track Trump's Covid-19 symptoms. I assume he's been exposed.

I'm sorry Trump is coming to your area. He should be quarantined till at least July 5th.

Finding out he's coming to town must feel a bit like finding out the zombies are coming to town.

And they just installed ionization tech that claims to kill 99.9% of COVID. So this should be fun.

Which is utter bullshiat. The founders certainly didnt envision neo-nazis and KKK, movements based on genocide, slavery, rape and murder.

If you're part of a hate group, you should be hunted down and executed like the degenerate you are. If these hate groups were muslim-based, they would all be slaughtered.
