WELLINGTON, Ohio – On Saturday, Donald Trump reiterated his baseless election dissatisfaction at his first campaign rally after leaving the White House and portrayed the dystopia of a Democratic-controlled country Picture.
In a way, his mission is to retaliate against one of the Republicans who voted for his historic second impeachment.
Trump’s event on Saturday night at the Lorraine County Fair in Ohio, not far from Cleveland, was to support former White House aide Max Miller, who is challenging Republican Representative Anthony Gonzalez for a seat in Congress . Gonzalez was one of 10 Republican House members who voted to impeach Trump for his role in inciting a deadly rebellion in the Capitol on January 6.
Trump wants them to pay.
In his speech, Trump re-examined some of the false statements he was familiar with about the futile challenge to US President Joe Biden’s election victory. “On the night of November 3rd, the election was over, and then suddenly things started to come to an all-out end,” he said of the election night. “We achieved a huge victory, and they did it. This is absolutely not allowed.”
In fact, Trump is describing a legal process of counting votes. As night falls, Biden takes the lead, and the results of Democrats’ preference for cities in major states and mailed votes are reported. Trump administration election officials and senior election officials in Republican-led states confirmed the validity of the election results.
In another echo from the past??, when Hillary Clinton was mentioned, the crowd chanted “lock her up,” and he defeated the Democrats in 2016.
Traffic from the open-air market to the town is supported, where residents’ lawns are scattered with signs supporting Trump. On the corner of the street, when supporters arrived, vendors sold the “Trump 2024” flag and other goods.
The rally took place five months after Trump stepped down under the violent cloud, marking the beginning of a new and more public phase after he resigned. After spending most of his time behind closed doors and getting angry at the last election, Trump plans to make a series of public appearances in the coming weeks. He will hold another rally in Florida on the fourth weekend of July, without contacting mid-term candidates, and will travel to the southern border in the coming week to protest President Joe Biden’s immigration policies.
The rally also took place at a time when Trump faced immediate legal danger. Manhattan prosecutors notified his company on Thursday that it may soon face criminal charges due to extensive investigations into the former president’s business transactions. “The New York Times” quoted a source familiar with the matter as saying that it may bring charges against the Trump Organization within a few days. Trump condemned these investigations as nothing more than a “witch hunt” designed to harm him politically.
Although Trump is still an extremely polarized figure, he is very popular among the Republican foundations, and candidates flock to his homes in Florida and New Jersey to seek his support as he tries to position himself as The king of the party.
Trump has stated that he is committed to helping Republicans regain control of Congress in next year’s midterm elections. But his efforts to support and recruit candidates to challenge the current Republicans who crossed him have caused him to disagree with other Republican leaders who have been trying to unite the party after losing control of the White House after a brutal year. . Failure to control both houses of Congress.
So far, 9 of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump have attracted major challengers. According to a report by syracuse.com, New York Rep. John Catko stated that Trump has offered to support anyone who stands up to challenge the remaining candidates.
“We are providing a lot of support,” Trump boasted on Friday morning, calling the conservative Newsmax channel and explaining his reasons for support.
“Fake Republicans, anyone who voted for impeachment doesn’t understand,” he said. “But they don’t have too many. And I think most of them, if not all, are now in the primaries, so that’s good. I will help their opponents.”
Gonzalez, a former college and professional football player, faced fierce criticism from conservatives in his party, including condemnation by the Ohio Republican Party, and insisted on impeachment votes.
At the same time, Trump continues to be obsessed with the results of his continuous efforts to overturn the 2020 election. He insists that he won, even though senior election officials, his own attorney general, and numerous judges have stated that there is no evidence of the large-scale charges Voter fraud.
He publicly accepted the idea that he could be reinstated in some way, even if there is no legal or constitutional basis for doing so.
At the same time, he continued to mock the possibility that he would return to the White House in 2024. The aide said that Trump, who was banned from using Twitter and Facebook after January 6, will make a decision after the middle of next fall.
Since he launched his 2016 campaign, Trump’s rally has played an important role in his politics. The former reality TV star is energized by performing in front of an audience, and often test drives new materials and talking points to understand how they resonate with the audience. His political actions also used these events to gather important voter contact information from attendees and use it as a fundraising tool.
They also gave birth to a group of hardcore fans who traveled the country, participated in dozens of rallies, and often camped at night to seize prime locations. Some of these supporters began to line up outside the venue earlier this week as they reunited for the event.
Others participated in their first assembly because they felt compelled to participate after the election.
“We miss him,” said Chris Laskowski, 55, who lives in Medina, Ohio, and is attending her first gathering with husband James. “I think they deprived him of the right to vote, and he is still our president,” she said.
She is not alone.
“He will be back in August,” predicted 60-year-old Peggy Johnson, who had come from Michigan to attend what she called the seventh Trump rally. “He is actually the president now.”
