It is reported that Trump took thousands of his supporters to the cold Pennsylvania night without shuttles after his rally.
CNN's DJ Judd tweeted:
Trump is done and gone, but there are thousands of followers released into the night with no sign of the shuttles given them will take them back to the parking lot. People fill the street and block the street for ambulances and police. pic.twitter.com/uMgfvUZ4Jg

It's the second time in a week that Trump has managed to hold a rally and fail to provide transport back to their cars for his supporters.
The Trump campaign has strongly denied that they are trying to freeze their followers to death and respond with a healthy dose of whatever is okay.
Not really. They called it false news:
The above tweet from @DJJudd is a fake.
We have 47 buses that bring supporters back to the parking lot. The line is moving and heating tents are set up.
Security and staff help people.
But these facts wouldn't retweets to DJ.

Trump does a lot of rallies but he managed to have enough shuttles to take his supporters to the rally. So you might think that using the same shuttles to get people back to their cars wouldn't be too difficult.
Unless the Trump campaign is so broke they can't afford round-trip transfers.
In any case, people who show up to support Donald Trump always seem to be left out in the cold.
