Trump at Ohio rally: I told you so
Donald Trump, the former president, took a victory lap during the first rally since his resignation and stated to President Joe Biden “I told him so.”
Trump showed vindication at his Saturday rally in Wellington (Ohio) to support Max Miller. Miller was a Trump supported candidate in a primary battle against Rep. Anthony Gonzalez. Gonzalez was an incumbent Republican who voted for Trump’s impeachment on the charge that he incited an insurrection.
“The Democrats and the media now admit that I was correct about everything. … Now, they say that he was right about all of these things. It’s all fine. Big deal, right?'” he said. “They lied on so many matters before the election.”
Trump said that the media’s shifting tone about COVID-19’s history, the effectiveness and safety of hydroxychloroquine, and the use Lafayette Park to photograph a group of people during racial turmoil last year were evidences that the press was unfair in its reporting of the 2020 presidential election.
Despite majority of legacy media outlets dismissing COVID-19’s origin theory at the Wuhan Institute of Virology initially, evidence has grown in support of the laboratory leak theory in recent weeks. Biden ordered authorities to investigate this possibility within 90 days.
While many news outlets have dismissed the effectiveness COVID-19 treatment using hydroxychloroquine as a treatment, a study published earlier in this month concluded that higher doses of azithromycin can increase the coronavirus survival rate up to nearly 200% for patients who are severely ill.
A government report by the Department of the Interior stated that the U.S. Park Police had not cleared Lafayette Park (located near the White House) and the surrounding areas of protesters for Trump on June 9. Instead, Trump’s interests in the area were discovered by Park Police shortly after they began plans to build new fencing.
Trump, who is widely believed to be a candidate for 2024, also voiced satisfaction with his predictions about his successor.
He said that Biden was going to destroy our economy and country. He also criticized the president for his role in the destruction of Keystone XL and accused him of imposing a “devastating tax increase” on U.S. businesses.
Trump accused Biden of “embarrassing” his performance on the international stage and said he kowtowed to China.
He stated, “Joe Biden wastes all of this hard earned respect that we had or had, bowing to America’s foes and embarrassing our nation on the global stage.”
Trump-affiliated political party, Save America PAC, held its first rally post-presidency earlier this month.
“President Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America, will hold a major rally in Wellington, Ohio on Saturday, June 26, 2021 at 7:00PM EDT,” the PAC said in a statement.
According to the PAC’s statement, Miller’s rally for support was Trump’s first of many appearances at rallies in support candidate and causes that promote the MAGA agenda of President Trump and his accomplishments.
Ohio’s 16th Congressional District, where Miller and Gonzalez are running, is Republican-leaning, with a partisan voter index of R+8, according to the Cook Political Report. The district supported Trump over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by more than 15 percentage points in the 2016 presidential election.
Gonzalez was one of 10 House Republicans which voted in favor the “incitement-of-insurrection” article for impeachment. After the Jan. 6 violation of the Capitol, Trump claimed that Trump “helped organise and incite a gang that attacked the United States Congress to prevent them from fulfilling their solemn duties as set forth in the Constitution.”
Trump was indicted on two Ukraine-related charges in 2019, but was later acquitted in a GOP-led Senate.
