A crowd of 20,000 Trump supporters gathered in Georgia on Saturday evening to hear former President Donald Trump deliver a defiant speech.
Despite the left’s vicious efforts to silence Trump and his supporters, Trump was his old, bold, self, as Breitbart reported, and there was no sign that enthusiasm for the president had dimmed as supporters broke into chants of “Build the Wall,” and “We Want Trump.”
Biden’s polls slipping
Recent polls suggest that it isn’t just the conservative base that misses Trump. Biden has been slipping in swing states like Georgia, the New York Post reported, which he unexpectedly carried for the Democrats last November for the first time in decades. Trump has bested Biden in some recent polls as well.
In Perry, Georgia, an eager, defiant Trump savaged Biden as a failed leader whose “appalling” incompetence during the evacuation from Afghanistan cost 13 American service members their lives. Trump left 13 seats empty at the front to honor the fallen soldiers.
Lacing into Biden’s “third-world” America, Trump pointed to a recent influx of “so-called refugees” from Afghanistan who have committed violent offenses since coming to America, and thousands of Haitians who stormed across the border in Del Rio, Texas.
Trump also came with barbs for “RINOs” in the Peach State who accepted the “rigged” 2020 election, like secretary of state Brad Raffensperger (R) and Governor Brian Kemp (R), joking that Stacey Abrams (D), who never conceded her 2018 loss to Kemp, would make a better governor.
The rally was Trump’s first in Georgia since Republicans lost both of the state’s U.S. Senate seats in January. Since then, Democrats have embarked on a ruthless campaign to marginalize Trump and paint his supporters as domestic terrorists, using what Trump called a “hoax” narrative about Jan. 6.
Despite these efforts, including an unprecedented social media ban, Trump remains the GOP’s dominant figure.
He has continued to exercise influence through endorsements ahead of the 2022 midterms, all while hinting at a 2024 run and going to war with “RINOs” who he says have failed to lead the party to victory.
Appearing with Trump were three candidates he has endorsed: NFL great Herschel Walker, who is challenging Democratic Georgia Senator Raphael Warnock, Jody Hice (R-GA), who is seeking Raffensperger’s job, and lieutenant governor candidate and State Sen. Burt Jones (R).
Commenting on his “big mouth,” Trump offered some thoughts on why the left is still working with such determination to destroy him. “The people we are dealing with are evil and angry and destroying our country,” Trump said.
“They’re destroying our country and they want to go after me because they think I have a big mouth. I don’t have a big mouth. You know what I have? I have a mouth that tells the truth. I have a mouth that wants to save our country.”
