The visitor logs are huge, hundreds of pages in big loose-leaf binders, each page filled with signatures front and back. When Leslie Rossi first created the Trump House, she had no idea it would become what one local political leader called a "mecca for the silent majority" a destination for 1,000 visitors a day, people who want to pick up a free Trump hat, or shirt, or flag, and who want to pose in front of the 14-foot high cutout of President Trump in the front yard.
More importantly, she had no idea it would become a center for people who want to register to vote for the first time, or change their registration from Democrat to Republican, or seek advice on how to become active in politics. And she certainly had no idea the Trump House would become an important measure of the intensity of Trump support in perhaps the most important battleground state in the 2020 election.
Rossi is the well-to-do owner of a number of rental properties around Latrobe in Westmoreland County, an hour east of Pittsburgh. She had watched in dismay as the area declined economically, especially during the Obama years, when the Democratic administration in Washington sought to undermine the coal, oil, and gas industries that are so important to the area. Coming from a family of Democrats, Rossi was attracted to the message of then-candidate Trump.
Instead of restoring one of her properties, a small, plain house that sat close to State Route 982, in 2016, Rossi hung a 25-foot Trump "Make America Great Again" sign in front of it. "Then the shit hit the fan," Rossi recalled in an interview Monday. She endured insults, middle fingers, and more. "People I'd known my whole life were treating us horribly," she said,

There is a store in Bristol, PA that sells only Trump stuff.
Same kind of feelings.
Good for her...Hope the dems don’t firebomb it...THEY HATE TRUTH.....
WOW that is crazy! Thanks for sharing. Big smiles....
What a great thing. Its amazing how much people love this president. Sometimes it brings tears of joy to my eyes when I watch the very real, very deep love people are showing for him.
Nothing matters if Philly comes in with 125% of the vote.
wow- great read. Any irony this is a minority family going all out to support our President but the Examiner has one picture of them at length?? Surprised and disappointed.
You can’t look at that house without smiling:-)
Hope the POTUS swings by sometime to thank her!
In our lifetime there has never been this kind of admiration , love even, for any president. Certainly not in my life time and I’m 64.
Please ping me with articles of interest.
FReepmail me to be added to the list.
The Biden campaign needs to have a similar house—in China!
What a great article!
I no longer take any free stuff, don't need any more, but it is a real kick to talk to new comers to the Trump House.
Think about it, average of about 1,000 people a day, for 4-5 months, that's over 100,000 people and they talk to their family and friends.
This family were demonRATs, and when they switched to Trump, many of their "friends" turned on them, and they didn't wilt.
The woman has eight kids and many of them work at the Trump House, passing out Trump stuff.
In the last cycle, Westmoreland County went 62.5 -35% for Trump and the demonRATs had 10,000 more registered voters than pubbies.
In the last four years, the pubbies have picked up enough voters so we have 10,000 more registered voters than the demonRATs.
Some credit has to go to this family and the beautiful Trump House.
You do know we won it last time? With all that fraud we still won-amazing!
