The ‘Trump House’ owned by Leslie Rossi has become an iconic tourist attraction in Westmoreland County for Trump supporters, with at least 1,500 people standing in line at the house each day of the weekend, The York Daily Record reported.
Ms Rossi, a mother of eight, opened the house in 2016 and again this year in an attempt to show support for the president in the battleground area.
Westmoreland County, once a Democratic stronghold, helped vote in Mr Trump in the 2016 election. Ms Rossi became an ardent Trump supporter four years ago and as a result, the ‘Trump House’ was born.
Ms Rossi originally displayed a massive campaign flag in front of one of her several rental properties before reimagining the farmhouse, the newspaper reported.
After she installed the houses bold new paintwork, she added the huge metal figure of Mr Trump, which has been shot at and beaten during the last four years, she said.
After waiting in line, fans visit the property's kitchen to accept free Trump merchandise provided by Ms Rossi: T-shirts, hats, signs, and even pocket-size versions of the US Constitution. She also offers voter registration forms for punters.
Two fans willing to wait in line to see the house, Jessica Nicholson and her mother Shirley Whipkey, travelled over half an hour to visit the attraction and pay tribute to their icon.
"We support our president. We believe he's done a good job, even though the media puts him down," Ms Whipkey told The Daily Record.
"If they wouldn't have tried to impeach him, if there hadn't been all this fighting, where would this country be today?" Whipkey said.
The supporters do not hold Mr Trump responsible for the spread of the novel coronavirus, and the death of the 228,000 people that have occurred as a result.
"We trust in God to take care of us," Ms Nicholson told the outlet.
"I actually lost some friends who voted for Biden," another woman in line added. "I told them: Do you want communism in this country?"
Ms Rossi is confident that she won’t have to dismantle her monument to the president anytime soon, anticipating that he will secure four more years in the White House on 3 November.
She said: "Oh, he won't lose."
