On the way to 2022 … and 2024. Donald Trump officially launched the campaign for the American mid-term elections on Saturday June 26, finding in Ohio the electric atmosphere of the meetings he loves, with an eye already fixed on the next presidential election in three years. It was the “very first meeting of the 2022 election”, he stressed in the introduction, the event having been organized in support of a Republican candidate for Congress, also a former advisor to the billionaire, Max Miller. “We will resume the House [des représentants], we will resume the Senate“, hammered the former president.
Donald Trump was attending his first major meeting since leaving the White House five months ago. In an energetic one-and-a-half-hour speech, he brought out his usual themes, including that of a running America. “to its doom” because of his successor. “Joe Biden is destroying our nation, right in front of our eyes. Who the hell knows what will happen in 2024, we won’t even have a country!”, he said.
He also reiterated his election allegations “stolen” by Democrats in 2020. The 75-year-old real estate mogul has yet to explicitly acknowledge Joe Biden’s victory. “We have won the election twice, and we may have to win it a third time”, did he declare.
Donald Trump supports Max Miller, who is running against a Republican in the House of Representatives, Anthony Gonzalez. The latter, who represents Ohio, was one of ten Republicans in the lower house, out of 211, to vote in favor of impeachment of Donald Trump during his impeachment trial for “incitement to insurgency” after the events of the Capitol on January 6. “Anthony Gonzales is a false Republican and a disgrace for your state”, launched Donald Trump, on the contrary praising the talents of Max Miller. “Max will be tough on immigration … he will protect Ohio jobs just like I did.”
