Former President Donald Trump has chosen the first state where he’ll be holding the inaugural rally for this year in a “significant” announcement.
The 45th president will head to Florence, Ariz., on January 15 to address supporters, according to his office.
The announcement, which was shared via Trump’s Save America PAC, said that the rally will begin at 7:00 p.m. MST at Country Thunder Festival Grounds.
Doors will open at 2:00 p.m. MST and pre-program remarks will commence at 5:00 p.m. MST before President Trump makes his grand arrival at the fairgrounds.
Trump released a significant statement earlier this week, which is a preview of how he plans keep the political pressure on Biden ahead of an expected 2024 presidential bid.
“More cases of COVID-19, sometimes referred to as the China Virus, are recorded in the U.S. today than ever before—not even close, and the Fake News Media refuses to print the real numbers,” he said.
“Do you remember when the Democrats campaign was based on the fact that they would quickly and easily get rid of the China Virus? Their whole campaign was a lie from Religion, to the Border, to the Military, to the Economy, to Inflation, to the loss of Energy Independence and, of course, most embarrassing of all, to the inept, grossly incompetent withdrawal from Afghanistan. All of those things, together with the Rigged 2020 Presidential Election, are the REAL BIG LIE!” Trump added.
Earlier this week, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told Fox News host Pete Hegseth that this time next year, he believes Trump will announce another run at the White House because he believes that Republicans will win back control of both congressional chambers.
“In 1994 we won 73 seats to take over the Congress, the House for the first time in 40 years. If we play our cards right, we will exceed that,” Graham said.
Hegseth responded: “You mentioned Donald Trump, senator. Is he the nominee in 2024 right now?”
“Yeah, if he wants it. Unless there is something coming out of left field I don’t see coming, it’s his nomination if he wants it. The Republican base appreciated him,” Graham added.
“We don’t appreciate all of the things he does sometimes, but from a policy point of view, he was the most successful president from a conservative’s point of view since Ronald Reagan. It is his nomination if he wants it,” Graham said.
He went on to make another prediction.
“And he will be in the White House in 2024 if he runs a disciplined campaign. And what he should do, in my humble opinion, is remind people how he secured the border, how he took the fight to ISIS, destroyed the Caliphate, how we were so much better off internationally — the Iran deal is a nightmare in the making for Israel — regained energy independence,” said Graham.
“So I think 2024 is President Trump’s election to lose, quite frankly. 2022 is a blowout year for the Republicans in the House and the Senate if we’ll talk about policy,” he added.
