Eric Trump, in an interview with Fox News Jeanine Pirro, claimed the following:

“They think they’re taking away Donald Trump’s greatest tool, which is being able to go into an arena and fill it with 50,000 people every single time…”

Has Donald Trump ever had a domestic arena crowd of 50,000 (as certified by an independent organization)?

    There are three different assertions in your question: Does he draw crowds of 50,000 (this year, presumably), in the title; has he ever drawn a crowd of 50,000 (in your question); and does he draw a crowd of 50,000 every time (from Eric Trump). Can you clarify which claim you want checked? – jeffronicus May 19 at 14:50

    Thanks -- the now-edited phrase in the title I was looking at was something like "does he draw..." which implies recency, presumably pre-COVID-19. I suspect the answer will be "yes, he has drawn 50,000" to an arena, with a "but he doesn't do it regularly." – jeffronicus May 19 at 15:30

    I'll note that there is a Wikipedia page listing Trump's rallies for the 2016 election season. The largest crowd listed is, I believe, 28,000-30,000. The documentation on the page is sparse, however, and crowd numbers for post-election rallies are not given. – Daniel R Hicks May 19 at 18:57

    I have seen that. The sister page, List of post-election Donald Trump rallies does not give crowd sizes. – Mawg says reinstate Monica May 19 at 19:03

    One possible line would be to look down the Wikipedia post-election rally list and see which of the venues actually have capacity for 50,000. Those, if any, could then be investigated further. Most of the rallies listed were at indoor sports arenas which typically have capacities that are significantly smaller. – Nate Eldredge May 20 at 0:06
