Just before Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump arrived on stage at the Arkansas State Fairgrounds, the general manager of the state fair said that they had set a record-breaking crowd – prompting Trump to brag about the achievement.
“'In 1974 we had ZZ Top here and we set our all-time record of 11,451," Ralph Shoptaw said on stage. "I have just been informed that we have broken that record. Over 11,500. So welcome, Mr. Trump to Barton Coliseum,” he said.
But photos taken at the event as Trump spoke at the Barton Coliseum reveal a different story, according to Daily Mail
The Barton Arena only holds 7,150 seats with room for an additional 3,045 in floor seating – 10,195 seats in all, according to the venue’s website..
