Donald Trump gathers in Ohio on Saturday to return to campaign-style event
Washington-Former President Donald Trump will head to Ohio on Saturday for his first campaign-style rally after leaving the White House. This could show how much he will be involved in next year’s parliamentary elections and provide clues as to whether he plans another presidential election. In 2024.
Trump’s event at Lorain County Fairgrounds in Wellington, about 30 minutes southwest of Cleveland, marks his return to the sort of mass rally that fueled his White House campaign. Since he resigned in January, Trump’s public speeches have been limited to a handful of speeches in front of conservative and Republican groups.
Banned from Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms he used to communicate with his supporters, Trump seems eager to get back on stage.
“A large crowd in Ohio this weekend for Trump’s rally,” Trump predicted in a statement issued by a political action committee called Save America PAC.
“Let’s meet on Saturday night,” he said. “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, AGAIN!”
Save America said Trump’s Ohio rally was the first of many appearances in favor of the candidate, further promoting his agenda and the outcome of his administration. The second rally is already planned for July 3rd in Sarasota, Florida.
Political analysts reaffirmed Trump’s position as a Republican leader, promoted conspiracy theories about the November elections last November, and resolved an old score that was equally important to Trump and his injured ego. He said it would provide a platform for doing so.
“This is just a kick-off for Donald Trump’s dissatisfied tour,” said David Cohen, a professor of political science at the University of Akron.
Trump lost his president to Joe Biden last November, but he carried Ohio 8 percent points. Saturday’s rally will be his first trip back to Buckeye since the election.
Political scientist Justin Buckler does not believe that Trump’s first post-election rally is particularly relevant to the fact that it has historically taken place in Ohio, the swing state of the presidential election.
More important, at least for Trump, is that he’s in Lorain County, where he won 3 percentage points last November, and he’s likely surrounded by people who are loyal to him.
Buchler, an associate professor of political science at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, said: “He does not go to areas surrounded by hostile crowds. He intends to go to places where he can be surrounded by those who are his ardent followers.”

Mr. Trump also spoke to Anthony Gonzalez, a member of northeastern Ohio, one of the ten Republicans who voted to impeach him for inciting an attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6. It is expected to use his appearance to counteract.
The Ohio Republican Board resolved in May to blame Gonzales and called for his resignation. A few weeks ago, Trump counterattacked Gonzales by throwing support at Max Miller, who is playing against Gonzales in next year’s Republican primary. Miller worked for Trump on the Campaign Trail and the White House.
According to Cohen, Gonzales, who represents Ohio’s 16th Parliamentary District, is politically “in big trouble.”
“The vote for his impeachment was very courageous and politicized, but it hurt him on his own political basis,” Cohen said. “And it can sacrifice his seat.”
Trump’s rally has an opportunity to strengthen Miller’s candidacy and remind voters that it is seen as a betrayal by other Republicans who voted to impeach him, such as Gonzales and Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney. Give him

And then there is Biden.
Trump used a speech at the Conservative Political Activities Council in Orlando, Florida in February to attack his successor, making unfounded claims about his defeat in the Biden election, and in 2024 the White House. Repeatedly suggested that he might run again.
Analysts expect repetitive performance in Ohio.
“It will be the biggest hit of his dissatisfaction,” Cohen said. “Of course, at the top of the list is doing a’big lie’, talking about how the 2020 elections were stolen by the Democrats, and that he should still be president. There will be. “
The Ohio rally takes place just four days before Trump is scheduled to visit Texas Governor Greg Abbott on June 30 at the US-Mexico border. Trump has repeatedly attacked Biden and his border policy and is expected to attack again in Ohio.
According to Cohen, he is no longer in office and is no longer a candidate for public office, but at least not officially, the Trump rally is one of the overall strategies to watch him publicly. It is a department.
“He hasn’t left,” he said. “He hasn’t left the political arena.”
