Trump refused to run for president in the 2024 presidential election, even as the crowd chanted “Four more years, four more years.” Although he hinted at it at some point. “Maybe we should win for the third time,” he said, repeating again the false claim that he won the November 2020 elections. The audience responded enthusiastically.
Over the past few months, Trump has given speeches at Republican Party events, but this was the first time he had held a rally. In Wellington, near Cleveland, Ohio, the Republican was welcomed by thousands of supporters. He stressed that the 2020 elections were not fair and that he won them. “The election is over,” Trump said. “And we had a big win. They did something that should never be allowed.”
He focused in particular on the growing number of immigrants entering the United States from its southern border. His repeated message was that Democrat Biden was a disaster. “Joe Biden is destroying our nation before our very eyes.”
Trump was in Ohio to support party member and former advisor, Max Miller, who is turning against Republican Congressman Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio. He voted to impeach Trump in January. The former president had announced earlier that he would launch a campaign against all Republicans who opposed him during the vote on his impeachment. “We’re going to get the House back, we’re going to get the Senate back, we’re going to get America back, and we’re going to do it fast,” he said.
