A photo of President Donald Trump returning to the White House in the dark, after one of his many rallies, has gone viral.

The picture, showing Trump walking on the grass after getting off his plane following a recent rally, was shared on Twitter by conservative actor James Woods.

“This man works for free. He works relentlessly into all hours of the night. He is attacked daily by a party of free-loading laggards who have accomplished nothing. He works with a single goal in mind: to save this nation from disaster. Support him Nov. 6 and vote #Republican,” Woods wrote.

The picture was “liked” over 129,000 times, and also spread on “The Donald” subreddit, which focuses on positive news and pictures about the president, and “liked” there some 14,000 times, as of Nov. 6.

The origin of the image is unclear.

Trump Rallies Across Country

Trump crisscrossed the country ahead of the Nov. 6 midterms, in an effort to keep Republican majorities in the House and Senate. He also campaigned for a number of Republicans running for governor.

According to Mark Knoller of CBS, Trump did 30 rallies since Labor Day and 53 since taking office. Nine were in the final five days. Trump often arrives back at the White House late in the night after flying home from rallies.

Republicans in closely contested races have welcomed Trump to their states, reported the Wall Street Journal. “With dozens of toss-up House and Senate races, Republicans’ need to energize Mr. Trump’s core supporters has turned him into the party’s political closer,” it reported.

Trump has said that he’s not specifically on the ballot but urged supporters to vote Republican so he can more efficiently enact his agenda. “I’m not on the ballot. But in a certain way, I am on the ballot,” he told a crowd at an Oct. 2 Mississippi rally.

Steven Law, president of the Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC aligned with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), told the Journal that midterms are always referendums on presidents.

“With a president as colorful and engaged and omnipresent as this one, you take that natural historical dynamic and put it on steroids,” he said.
