Trump Upset About Coverage Of Elizabeth Warren’s Crowd Size
He tweeted, “They do stories so big on Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren’s crowd sizes, adding many more people than are actually there, and yet my crowds, which are far bigger, get no coverage at all. Fake News!”

Trump is referring to a rally Warren held in Seattle, Washington, on Sunday which was estimated to have over 15,000 people in attendance.
Trump has a long obsession with his crowd size and comparing it to his opponents.
After Trump’s inauguration, a photo circled that compares the attendance at his inauguration to that of President Barack Obama’s.

Just after the photo was published former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was adamant that Trump’s crowd size was the “largest” ever. It was later discovered that a government photographer had edited the photo to make it look like there were more people there.
Earlier this month, a video of empty seats surfaced from Trump’s rally in New Hampshire, promoting the President to tweet:
Biggest crowd EVER, according to Arena people. Thousands outside trying to get in. Place was packed! Radical Left Dems & their Partner, LameStream Media, saying Arena empty. Check out pictures. Fake News. The Enemy of the People! https://t.co/KkZWspM93a

While visiting El Paso shooting victims, he took the opportunity to brag about the crowd size at his last rally in the city.
