Trump supporters in Omaha were left out in the cold after a rally in Omaha, Nebraska, caused bus backups for about 6,000 attendees.

The rally, which was held at the Omaha Eppley Airfield on Tuesday evening, left thousands stranded in near-freezing temperatures as they waited for buses to haul them back to their vehicles at remote parking lots, The Washington Post reported.

While Trump had left the rally on Air Force One, the crowd was left behind as buses lined the roads off the airport, causing a backup that lasted for hours, the Post said.

Several elderly Trump supporters were left stranded as they waited for buses to transport them back, causing police to take at least seven people to the hospital, the Omaha Scanner said. It was unclear at the time of writing exactly how many people needed medical treatment from the dipping temperatures.

Police called for more buses, saying that at least 30 more would be needed to disperse the crowd, CNN reporter Jeff Zeleny tweeted. The bus situation was no better to get people to the rally site, which was located more than three miles away as hundreds of supports arrived late, the Iowa Starting Line reported.

Reports from the Omaha World-Herald indicated that the attendees of the rally were jammed into risers, and many did not wear face masks, despite them being handed out prior to the start of the rally. Temperatures of participants were also checked by the Trump campaign, the news outlet said.

Trump departed the rally at about 9 p.m while thousands of his supporters were still left waiting for buses nearly 1 hour and 20 minutes later, Zeleny tweeted. The rally site did not become completely clear until after 12:30 a.m. – more than three hours after the event ended, Omaha World-Herald reporter Aaron Sanderford tweeted.

Several Trump supports took to Twitter to voice their frustration, causing the hashtag #Omahastranded to trend on the social media platform.

One Twitter user tweeted to Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, “Your father literally turned supporters Blue in #Omaha tonight. #Omahastranded.

Another Twitter user said, “They came for the COVID but stayed for the hypothermia. #Omahastranded.”

Yet, another Twitter user said, “The best metaphor for the past four years: Trump rallying and lying, while America is stranded in the dark and the cold with no plan to help people. You have to be really stupid to continue supporting him. He doesn’t care. #Omahastranded #OmahaTrumpRallyDisaster.”
