Former President Donald Trump is in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, on Saturday for a “Save America” rally to stump for his preferred candidates in a must-win swing state.
The event, which is taking place at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza, will feature appearances by GOP Senate hopeful Dr. Mehmet Oz and state Sen. Doug Mastriano, the Republican gubernatorial nominee.
Trump endorsed both in their highly competitive primary races. While not on the set list for Saturday’s event, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) was seen walking into the event. The rally is taking place over Labor Day weekend, the unofficial start of the midterm election season.
Trump’s Saturday rally comes three weeks after the FBI searched his Mar-a-Lago estate, igniting a political firestorm.
Federal authorities say the unprecedented search was conducted to retrieve boxes of classified documents the 45th president brought to his Palm Beach, Florida, golf club after leaving office. Trump, who has not been charged related to the matter, has denied any wrongdoing, arguing that the files he possessed were “all declassified.”
Trump has been vocal on his Truth Social platform in the weeks since the raid about his fury over the raid of his resort and the seizure of documents.
He is widely expected to have much to say on the raid and investigation into him at the Pennsylvania event. He also may go after President Joe Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland, likely accusing them of partisanship related to the raid of his Florida home.
“He has even phoned in to a number of conservative radio shows to bemoan how federal authorities have treated him, as well as to denounce the investigation itself.” BEMOAN??? President Trump has every right to protest this raid on his home, but he isn’t “bemoaning” it! Whose side are you on, “Truth” Press????
Trump stole documents that he wasn’t supposed to have. He lied about giving them all back. The only way for the government to get them back was to come in and take them.
Trump what a awesome magnificent leader of Americans. What a difference in contrast to the evil satanic speech proclaiming war against Millions upon Millions of Americans.. What a contrast of Character. Between Beijing Biden and the real President Trump truelly the Best.
As far as I could tell he did not use a teleprompter or notes. I could not speak that long with out some aides.
When all you do is lie and attack people, teleprompters are usually not needed.
