There was a time when all of the press would attend political rallies held by former President Donald J. Trump. Now, except for a few far-right news sources, few people are taking notice, although they are still being well attended.

This week, Trump complained about the media, which has moved on from his rallies for the most part.

“Remember when Bernie Sanders used to draw crowds of 3,000, 4,000 or even 5,000 people, and the press would go absolutely wild talking about how big Bernie’s crowds were showing them from all different angles and making it sound like the greatest show on earth—but when I draw 30,000, 40,000, 50,000 or in one case 87,000 people, reporters do not report it and cameras are not allowed to show how big the crowds are,” Trump said. “It is a constant complaint I make during speeches. Turn the cameras, I say, turn the cameras to show the crowd, but they refuse to do it, not even the networks that are even a little bit on our side. The good news is, the people of our country get it, and they get it like never before.”
