Florence, Arizona – Former US President Donald Trump gave a speech in Arizona and again insisted on winning the presidential election, which was welcomed by thousands of supporters.
“It’s over with the politicians in Washington who control your lives. It’s over with the imposition,” Trump said.
“The Radical Democrats want to turn the United States into a communist country,” he added. He reiterated that he won the 2020 presidential elections.
“We can’t let them get away with it,” he said. Earlier speakers sent similar messages. Biden is accused of being “weak”, “upset” and attacking the mainstream media. They talked about stolen elections, media bias, open borders and how the US is causing “ridicule” around the world.
Trump pointed out that a “huge” audience had gathered, which he could not catch his eye, but at the moment there is no accurate data on the number of those gathered. On the eve of the victory in the elections in 2016 and during the presidential mandate, tens of thousands of people would gather at his rallies, but lately the gatherings have become less and less attended.
The turnout at Saturday’s rally appears to have been much lower than at previous rallies, according to the French news agency AFP. The rally was held on agricultural land 100 kilometers from Phoenix, and along with Trump, there were also Republicans known for denying the results of the 2020 elections.
Among them was Carrie Lake, who was supported by Trump in the elections for the governor of Arizona this year. She said earlier that she would not have certified Biden’s victory in that federal state if she had been in office at the time.
“And I promise you this, there will be no choice with any machines or computers in 2022,” he said. Trump, who is banned from using Twitter, his main platform for addressing the public, is much less involved in American politics than he lost the election.
However, he is influential in the Republican Party. Supporting his theories, or at least not distancing himself, is often necessary for the survival of Republican congressmen and other officials.
Trump has rarely appeared in the mainstream media since he became president, but last week he gave an interview to the National Public Radio (NPR) in which he recommended vaccination against kovid 19, which was criticized by some of his supporters.
