Big Easy Magazine Coverage of Donald Trump’s Speech in New Orleans

Air Force One has just landed in New Orleans, Donald Trump is going to be giving a speech at the convention center before the Farm Bureau Conference shortly, and Big Easy Magazine is on the scene. In spite of his being involved with a record-breaking government shutdown, the crowd is still expected to be sympathetic to Trump’s message.

Most of the video playing before his speech has focused on the success of government deregulation, and the room hasn’t yet filled. Yet at no other time has his administration seemed to be in more political peril than now, with Trump’s support taking a substantial hit from the shutdown.

As with all speeches Trump gives, there is a likely chance that despite the teleprompters set up, he could speak off the cuff about issues unrelated to the subject at hand. We’re ready to capture video and audio of the President’s remarks today.

Meanwhile, outside the Convention Center, a crowd has begun to gather to protest President Trump’s visit, his policies, and the border wall he champions.

Help Keep Big Easy Magazine Alive

Hey y'all,

I just wanted to provide an update to where we stand today. A few days ago, we launched a fundraising effort to keep Big a Easy Magazine alive. We determined we would need to raise $10,000, which represents 1/10 of the personal investment I made into the publication. As it stands now, we have raised just over $300 and have set a fundraising deadline of midnight June 1st. Please help us meet our goal. I promise you with your support if we reach our goal, you will be able to continue seeing progressive content about the issues that matter. If we don’t meet our goal, well, in all honesty, those who have an interest in our demise will have won the battle. When we launched the fundraising effort, we got bombarded with remarks such as “see ya,” and “lol.” We cannot allow them to win. Please donate today to keep us alive and support progressive media.

Thank you,
Scott Ploof
Big Easy Magazine
