Trump Plans New York Rally

Former President Donald Trump’s campaign announced an upcoming event in his former state of New York this week, following a large rally in New Jersey earlier this month. The decision came as the former president said that he would make a serious push to win the Empire State and that he would win New Jersey outright.

Trump will hold the rally in the South Bronx in New York City next week. The May 23 event could be a significant boost to the city as he seeks to build a coalition of working class and minority voters.

“New Yorkers have suffered greatly thanks to Biden’s failed policies,” said the Trump campaign, echoing the former president’s earlier statements.

“The Empire State, a place near to President Trump’s heart, has been decimated by Biden,” said the campaign.

The former president’s move came after a weekend rally in New Jersey that attracted thousands of supporters. The Trump campaign estimated that up to 100,000 people were there.

Trump has been in New York more than usual in recent weeks during his ongoing criminal trial. The former president has received a warm welcome after his trial dates, often being cheered on by crowds of enthusiastic supporters.

Following one court proceeding, the former president delivered pizza to members of the New York Fire Department (NYFD).

During the events, Trump said that his campaign would make an effort to win New York, which has not been won by a Republican since former President Ronald Reagan in 1984.

Trump also hoped to win a number of other states that have not been carried by the GOP in recent cycles. On Friday, he headlined the Minnesota Republican Party’s Lincoln-Reagan dinner and predicted that his campaign would have a strong finish in the state.

Minnesota has not been won by a Republican since former President Richard Nixon in 1972.

The Trump campaign’s decisions may also reflect a series of recent polls that show him in good standing both nationally and in swing states. Most swing state polling shows the former president leading Biden, which could ultimately decide the Electoral College in November.
