On Wednesday, the Lithuanian Television reporters visited the Trump house in Pennsylvania, where his supporters try to swing voters into Trump’s camp.

Trump didn’t build this one, but it stands out in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, like the Trump Tower on Route 982 in Youngstown.
 

‘He is not here, this is just a house, where we give out T-shirts, hats, pens, stickers, and people just flock to it, they love discussions here, they love meeting people that have similar ideas’, said owner of the house Leslie Rossi.


Rossi and her husband buy old buildings to restore and rent out, so after the election, this home will be restored as well, but for now it‘s the Trump house.
 

Among hundreds of visitors who come here every day, Lithuanian Television reporters met a woman who appeared to be very happy with symbolic Clinton’s photo behind the bars in the basement of Trump’s house.
‘I love Trump. Want Trump to win. We are here to get some stuff to help advertise,’ she said while the other supporter inside the house offered journalists also to take stuff for free. ‘There are free hats, you got the hats, and you got the shirts, and all for the visitors, for all people who come here’.
 

The house is like a paradise for local Trump supporters, but the polls still forecast the victory in Pennsylvania for Clinton, although the state might swing.
